Zero Work Hour Tasks
- For Tasks with multiple Resources, if one has zero hours and the other has hours assigned, the task will only update to "Done" once the Resource with hours assigned updates it to "Done"
In the Video
The video above demonstrates using Percent Complete Duration instead of traditional Percent Complete to understand "doneness." The calculation is Task % Complete multiplied by the duration for the summary task then divide that number by the sum of duration days.
Please know this is not the traditional method for calculating percent complete AND using Zero Hour Tasks will not help visualize Resource Allocation. We do not recommend leaving Work Hours at Zero.
- This option will provide you with level of effort calculations based on each duration day requiring all day to complete.
*Please note: I say that PMI is the acronym for Project Management International. My bad. The actual acronym stands for Project Management Institute. I'm not going to reshoot the entire video.
