Difference between work effort and duration

Difference between work effort and duration

Difference between work effort and duration

Let me try this question again.  Lets say I have one person scheduled from 02/01 to 04/01 to complete a task that will only take them 4 hours.  How do I tell project that I am giving them two months to complete a 4 hour task.  This same person may have 19 other task for that same period.

RE: Difference between work effort and duration

As I described, you set the duration to the calendar duration and input 4 hrs for the work.  Your resource utilization should reflect the percentage utilization of about 1.3%
