Default Resource Groups

I have over 100 people that will be working on a plant shutdown project. There are 5 groups. Electrical, Mechanical, Steam, Production & Equipment list. Is there any way I can group the staff & equip so I do not have to scroll a long alphabetical list. I would like to look at a production list, mechanical list or equipment list etc.

If those are the only groups you have, I would suggest just putting the group in the "Resource Group" (or "group", I use 10 and 16 so not sure what the heading in 13 is), then just click the small down arrow in the heading. you can then filter by group to just show the one you want.

hope that helps.

I think I asked the question incorrectly... I can group resources, what I'm hoping to do is.... In the "Resource Name" column is create a tree(?) To the effect that I click a cell (in the Resource Name column), the group names appears (Production, Maintenance etc.) then click a group name and a drop down list shows names of the personnel in that group. Then select the name to assign task. I'm trying to avoid the very long list of personnel and equipment.

Resource
Name (column)

+Production (group)
+Maintenance (group)
John J
Steve S
Don J
+Electrical (group)
+Mechanical (group)
+Contractor (group)
+Equipment (group)
