  • Hi,

    How do we spread 44hrs such as the distribution is 8h/day the first three days and 10 h/day the last two days?

    Please, find below the scenario:
    * Create one resource (max units = 100%)
    * Create a task for a period of five working days, Effort driven and Fixed Duration
    * Assign the resource to the task
    => Result (1): The Work of 40hrs was distributed at a rate 8h/day.

    * Increase the Work with 4hrs

    QUESTION: How do we spread 44hrs such as the distribution is 8h/day the first three days and 10 h/day the last two days?

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT

    Go to the Resource Usage view and manually adjust the hours for the last two days. You do realize that the resource will be overallocated on those two days, right?
