  • Hi,

    sorry, the duration is just the difference between start and finish. There is no way to change this.

    You are not interested in the duration (how long will it take to complete), but in the effort, this is just work. 32hrs are 4 days, so you can see it. You can change the units to be displayed in "File - Options - Schedule - Work is entered in" to see work in days:

  • Hi,

    duration is always the number of working days between start and finish.

    Since you are asking for "activity", I assume you are more interested in "Work". This column is not displayed be default in Gantt Chart. Just add this column to your table (right mouse click on any column header - insert column - work).

    Does that help?

  • Hi,

    OK, I was not aware that you haven't assigned any resources. I you assign a resource, there will be work in this column and UAT will show the total work.
