If you're a team that manages work on a daily basis then this feature can be a great tool! The Work Manual Leveling feature gives you a powerful way to distribute Work Hours throughout the task lifetime.
- See the Capacity & Resource Allocation Add-On documentation for more.
Install and Configure
Since not everyone uses this, you'll have to check the box in the Capacity & Resource Allocation Add-On, found on the Add-Ons page. Hit Configure for that Capacity & Resource Allocation Add-On and scroll down to the "Other Settings" section:
Manage Your Work Manual Leveling
While on the Resource Allocation Report, click on the time (day or week) for a specific Task for a Resource and you will be taken to the following pop-up.
- In this example, Ron's task is 8 hrs total and since it is due Thursday the 2nd, the 8 hrs are spread over Wed and Thurs
- Now you can spread those hours out even past the task due date, in this case up to Friday
Proceed with Caution
With great power comes great responsibility - the more you CAN manage means the more potential managing. This requires your team to be focused on the daily schedule for Resources
