Default Team Planner view with 0% assignment

Hello,


I have a project file (v. 2010) with a resourcing pool, so my preferred view is the "Team Planner" one.
I have this problem: there are some tasks that have resources with a unit assignment of 0%, but in these cases, the "Team Planner" view doesn't show anything!
How can I visualize the task for a resource that has 0% units assignment in the "Team Planner" view?
Regards, codeghi

Sorry, I must clarify the question.
The task is common to two resources: resource A with 100% unit, resource B with 0% unit, the task's duration is 5 days for example.
In the "Team Planner" view I can see the task for resource A, but I cannot see the same thing for resource B: how can I do this?

Resources assigned to tasks with zero percent assignment units does not calculate work. My guess is, that is why they do not show the assignment in the Team Planner view.

Why do you have resources assigned at 0% assignment unit? The assignment does show in the Resource Usage view.

Hello, this is the problem: I have a "material" resource assigned to 100% for a task A, and a "work" resource assigned to 0% to perform the task A, and at the same time assigned to 100% for the task B.
My wish is visualize in the "Team Planner" view that "work" resource will be occupied for both the tasks

Material resources as set out by Project do not have assignment units. You can change the type of the material resource to Material - but it sounds like your "material" resource is a work resource.

Work resources perform work - not material resources. It sounds like you have things backwards. If Resource A is performing the task, they cannot be assigned at 0%.

Please tell me why you are doing what you are doing. I understand you wish to see that the work resource is assigned to both tasks in team planner - but with zero assignment units, that is not going to happen. The Team Planner view shows you work resources who are assigned to tasks and have a work value.
