Default Assign resource groups to tasks

Hi there,



Is it possible to assign individual resources to groups, and then assign that group to tasks?

I'm thinking along the lines of assigning a number of resources to a committee, and then rather than selecting 8 people to assign to committee tasks, I just select the committee.

I don't want to just create a generic resource called 'Committee' b/c I want the resource usage of the individuals within the group to be accounted for...

I think I solved this...

Not technically possible to create a 'non-generic' group that accounts for resource usage for those assigned to the group, and that I can just assign to tasks.

Instead, can use the group field in the resource sheet to label resources as belonging to a certain group; then use the filter in 'Assign Resources' and filter by group to get all members that are on the committee...
