Unallocate resources

To unallocate specific types of resource from scheduled activities, use the Unschedule Special function. The activities remain scheduled.

About this task: You might use this function in a scenario where resources were manually allocated to activities on a "first come first served" basis, when the timetable was under construction. Later, you might want to achieve a more equitable resource allocation. For example, you can use Unschedule Special to remove the allocation of locations, then use Schedule Special to automatically allocate locations.
