Actual Work Overwrites Duration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All

    I sooooo hope somebody can assist me.  I think I am about to go mad.

    I have a problem on PWA.  Timesheet or Tasks view.

    Scenario: Project 1 with one task.  Duration and all units set to Hours (in project professional and PWA views). Default task type is Fixed Units or Fixed Work (tried both).
    Task Start and End date are TODAY.  Duration and work are both set to 1h.

    When ANY of my resources (and some have different base calendars) add actual hours from task view or from the timesheet, it automatically changes the duration to an estimated full day (8h?).  Work, Actual Work and Remaining work are exactly right.  Just the duration changes.

    I am sure I am missing something so very simple.

    Can anybody assist?

    Thank you!

  • For the 1h duration task, are resources booking more than the allotted work to the task itself?

    e.g., if Task A work is 1hrs (duration 1hr ~ 2 resources), and resources book combined 6hrs to task A, the duration will increase to accommodate the additional work applied to the task.

  • Hi

    No.  It is only 1 task assigned to 1 resource. 

    What you are mentioning above would make logical sense to me for the duration increase. But alas, I am at a loss on my issue.
