Adding long duration task by inputting the hours per individual week RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am doing resource planning of Project Managers and Technical Specialist. Some are working on generic tasks for several weeks where the amount of hours they work on that project per week differs. I want to know if it is possible to give an input for a task by means of filling out the amount of hours per week. For instance, over a period of 8 weeks, John will work on a language course. Wk 1 - 4 hours Wk 2 - 6 hours Wk 3 & 4 0 Hours, Wk 5 & 6 8 hours and 7 & 8 4 hours.

    I thought I was able to change this in the task usage screen, but there I cannot edit the hours of the task, only the allocation of resources.

    Note that this is also important when converting f.i. a holiday schedule or draft project plan in Excel into MS-project.

    Kind Regards

  • Hi,

    Task or resource usage should work. Just enter on each row and each time period, just like in an excel sheet.

    I don't see why setting hours at assignment level would be an issue.

    Hope this helps,
