A project management resources scheduling user interface is provided in which resource information may be displayed in a condensed timeline for each resource over the duration of a project. Individual tasks or groups of tasks displayed in the project management resources scheduling view may be moved from one resource to another resource while respecting project constraints and dependencies. Unassigned and unscheduled tasks may be dragged onto the scheduling view and may be dropped on a given resource in a timing location required by the project. Tasks may be viewed according to a hierarchical relationship between tasks of a given project. The scheduling view may be used in combination with a Gantt chart view of project tasks for allowing a view of both task-based and resource-based scheduling.
