Calculated Assignment Duration Type - What Does the % Represent?

Avatar

Level 10

Hi WF Community,

I'm trying to determine what the assignment allocation % on a task means for a given assignee when we use the Duration Type 'Calculated Assignment'.

Is it a percentage of the project as a whole, or is it based off of a bunch of other stuff (e.g. the total hours assigned to an assignee for all of their work)?

Thanks.

Nick

Found the answer (thanks, Support):

Allocation percentage represents the amount of time an assigned resource is planned to work on a task in a day. It is the percent of a work day (according to the user or project schedule) at which a resource is allocated throughout the duration of the task. You cannot modify the percentage allocation of a resource assigned to an issue.
