How to assign resource to a specific part of a task

Occasional Contributor
I have a design task with a duration of 20 weeks.
During this task I need to assign:
- resource A for first 5 weeks and latest 5 weeks
- resource B for all these 20 weeks.

Is there any way to assign a resource for a specific time, in order to assign my resource to another task?

Thank you

Dariocg,
Yes, there are various ways to do it. Here is one:
1. Assign both resources at 100% each via Resources > Assignments > Assign Resources
2. Go to the Task Usage view and set the timescale for Months and Weeks
3. Set the timescale values to zero for the 3 weeks during which resource A will not work on the task

Hope this helps.
