Question about the Resource Allocation Feature

My team has a master project list for the year. Some of the projects include ongoing projects (newsletters, web maintenance) that we marked as a due date of 12/31/19.  Others may take a week or a month. 

When I turned on the resource allocation tool, I noticed that everyone was majorly over allocated.  Would the ongoing projects be taken into account for this?  

Is the resource allocation tool a good resource for a sheet like this?
