Calculating cost RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I assign a resource at $100/h in Project Online, but my project uses a calendar with a 9 hour day.  When I look at the cost of a resource for 1 day it says $800 for an eight hour day.  I assume it is pulling this information from Project Online server settings but I can't find where to change it or if it is possible.

    Has anyone tried to change Project Online hours per day settings?

    Thanks,

    Gill

  • Hi Gill,

    Please find below a link to an excellent post from Brian about Project Online server setting.

    You'll find under "enterprise data" enterprise calendars that you'll be able to edit in order to adjust the working time.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi Guillaume,

    Thanks for the information.  Unfortunately it hasn't fixed the problem.  It seems to be a weird one... The project I'm trying to calculate the cost for is using an Enterprise calendar I created so I could get the working day as 9 hours long.  So far in the project I have one resource who has worked one day so it should be $900 instead of $800.  I thought maybe I could put in a daily rate but then when I have 0.5 days duration it will calculate for 4hrs instead of 4.5.

    The calendar works when scheduling the duration of a task but seems to be pulling the hours for calculating the cost from somewhere else.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Gill
