Fixed Duration Tasks work hours not updating properly RRS feed

  • Question

  •  I have a task of 2 days duration which is fixed duration; with 1 resource assigned when it is 30%, I add 2 more resources to it as even though duration is same work hours need to be increased. But I don't see any impact on work even when 2 resources are added. M I missing something

  • Just check if the check box - Effort Driven is checked for that task, as in this case whatever are the hours in Work field that gets equally distributed between all resouces (in your case the newly added and existing resource). Uncheck that box and then assign resources; this should fix your calculations for the expected hrs. adding to Work field.
