Default Resource allocation for teams

I have just started using Project 2016 so please bear with me because I have only a basic knowledge.

I have four people. They work together in teams of two to complete certain tasks and teams of four for other tasks. If one member of either team is unavailable they cannot start / complete the task. How do I allocate resource time for task 1 and task 2 to allow for non-working time (holidays, training etc). The two teams work separately and only come together to complete the second task after they have completed task 1.

Hi Richard,

Unfortunately there is no completely elegant way of solving the issue. You can create the two teams - and set the max units to 200% for each team to signify two people on each team. If the team cannot work unless both are available, you can enter non-working time in the Team's resource calendar. Project will then reschedule the assigned work to when the resource is available. However, if you assign both team 1 and team 2 (to make the 4 person group), Project will not move the entire task. It will allow the team with the non-modified schedule to work on the task and then second team can come in later.
