resource-usage with recurring task shows wrong hours

resource-usage with recurring task shows wrong hours

resource-usage with recurring task shows wrong hours

(OP)
I want to schedule a task of 3 x 1/2 day/week for 20 weeks.
These 1/2 days are always on tuesday, thursday and friday.
When I use a recurring task, everything goes well untill I look at the resource graph. There it says 8 hours/day instead of the expected 4 hours/day.

I think (hope) it's set to "days" instead of "hours" somewhere.
But where do I set the resourcegraph to display (and calculate) with the real hours when using a recurring task?

RE: resource-usage with recurring task shows wrong hours

You need to resource each day separately, which simply means that you need to drag/copy the resource into each like of the recurring task.  If you do that you'll get your 4 hrs/day for your resource.
