The Leveling Delay field contains the amount of time that a task or assignment is to be delayed from its early start date as a result of resource leveling (leveling: Resolving resource conflicts or overallocations by delaying or splitting certain tasks. When Project levels a resource, its selected assignments are distributed and rescheduled.). Task leveling delay is expressed in elapsed duration units, while assignment leveling delay is expressed in regular duration units. No information is actually displayed in the Leveling Delay resource field; it merely makes the corresponding Leveling Delay assignment field information available.
There are several categories of Leveling Delay fields.
