Resource Management Best Practices and/or Tips


We are beginning to use resource management. I have everything turned on and set up, but am looking for best practices for allocating resources to a project. Here is an example: 5 people are going to attend a 1 hr meeting. I am assuming I enter all five individuals in the assignee column, 1 hr in duration and 100% in % allocation. Is this correct? 

What if one person has 5 hours of work to be done in a week. Whenever I enter 5 hours it automatically defaults to one day and removes the 'week' reference. Is this some kind of default setting? 

I would be sincerely grateful if anyone could share documentation, or direct me to a training video, that focuses on building resource management into project plan structure.
