Apply calendar to plan

523 views

Hello,

Created iterations: IT1 and IT2

Created calendar for plan:

Sunday and Saturday - Nonworking Time

Monday-Friday - 02:00 PM to 05:00 PM

Created tasks with subtasks:

1. Task "Do Job in Iteration IT1 steps from 1 to 2" 

1.1 "Subtask Step 1 with duration 9h"

1.2 "Subtask Step 2 with duration 6h"

2. Task "Do Job in Iteration IT2 steps from 1 to 2"

2.1 "Subtask Step 1 with duration 3h"

2.2 "Subtask Step 2 with duration 3h"

All tasks assigned to one resource

Atrer that I see wrong Duration on "1. Task.." and "2. Task..."

In dashboard all Iterations always showing progress 0%

The calendar settings are ignored

 

Hours Per Day: 3, Hours Per Week: 15, Days Per Month: 20

All tasks duration =21h

How to set starting date to 2014/04/01 and get finish date 2014/04/01 + (21h/3 ) +2 weekend days = 2014/01/09

Thank you

Hello,

Thank you for approaching us.

We went through your post and have produced a same situation here. Here, I have answered your questions.

1) Wrong Duration on "1. Task..." and "2. Task..."

  • We have traced this issue and our development team is working on these fixes. This will be resolved in our next release, which will be scheduled approximately by the end of this month.

2) In dashboard all Iterations always showing progress 0%

  • This is because, right now, we have designed a singleton application for the iterations. That means, in your situation, you will have to apply the iteration to the sub tasks individually. When the work will be captured on them, the progress will be captured and displayed on the dashboard.

However, you have a good point here that when the iteration is applied to a parent task, it should automatically get applied to its subsequent summary tasks. We will surely include this in our work plan and make it happen.

3) The calendar settings are ignored

  • Right now, we are working on this feature and all the issues are being fixed. You will get these issues fixed in our further release.

4) How to set starting date to 2014/04/01 and get finish date 2014/04/01 + (21h/3 ) +2 weekend days = 2014/01/09

You can use task dependencies for this. If you make a use of Start to Finish dependency in your task, Ganib will make sure that one task does not begin before its dependent task is finished. This way, you will be able to set the plan in desired time period.

For more information regarding task dependencies, you can refer below link:
