Android help - Employee assignment during dev stages

I am playing the android game. Once I hired my first two employees, I could assign them individually to certain tasks during the game development stages.

I expanded a bit and hired two more employees and cannot assign anyone anymore. Just wondering if this is intended or not, or if I am just doing something stupid.

edit nevermind, Just noticed that once I got out of the publisher phase the new games got popped back to small.
