Resource Planner - Exclude Planned hours on Cancelled Tasks

I'm noticing that tasks with planned hours that have been CANCELLED are falsely inflating workloads in the capacity planner. When a task is cancelled, the hours should not impact capacity reporting as the work is cancelled.


Currently the only work around I know of is to delete the planned hours from each task. This is a huge effort as the PM has to go into EACH task & wipe out the planned hours & duration to effectively remove the time.


SUGGESTION: automate the deletion of planned hours from cancelled tasks or figure out a way to exclude those hours from being counted in capacity & resourcing tools.

Agreed. This is absolutely vital when looking at role level data, completed tasks should not show as requiring future capacity. It can lead to wildly inaccurate capacity projections
