Work affected to a resource on a task

I'm willing to use the "FIxed Work" as Default Task Calculation Type.

Indeed we handle several projects where resources can work during a period on several projects in parallel and where we sell services always associated to a certain amount of days.

As an example, we have tasks that can last 5 days in total to be consumed in a timeframe of 2 or 3 months.

THe thing is that when a resource is affected to this kind of task, Ganib will calculate 8 hours/day by default and then I have to adjust the hours/day, but it is complicated when I have a timeframe of several months.

And Ganib modifies the dates to adjust with the hours/day for the allocated ressources.

Would it possible to put the setting of hours/day as an optional feature ? Otherwise could you advise me on how I could handle this another way?

Thank you for escalating this problem.

The conflict is actually occuring due to the units of work. When you set the task's work to fixed and assign a duration and then assign the resource to the task, the units of work for that user are by default calculated as 8 hours per day. And according to this, the duration is recalculated.

However, our development team is working on it and we are in a process of making this feature more flexible in our further release.

Meanwhile, if there are some other concerns, Please feel free to contact us.

Happy Using Ganib.
