fixed duration and unit RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    is there any way to arrange task type as "fixed duration and unit" .. there is only fixed duration,unit or work, because  it is so hard to follow activity duration or unit ...when i fix one of them the other one changes and it is useless for many users i think

    thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    Can you detail your use case?

    Basically, you have 3 parameters for the task: unit, work and duration. You just cannot fix 2 of them. If you fix both duration and unit, when you change the work, how MS Project must behave?

    For example, you have a 10 days duration task with a resource at 50%. Thus the work will be 5 days. If you update the work to 7 days, MS Project has to update also either the duration or the unit.

    Please give us more details.


    Hope this helps,
