Set the amount of work that people perform on tasks

Online Help > Set the amount of work that people perform on tasks

Set the amount of time (or person-hours) for a task to be completed. This is the amount of time regardless of the number of people on the task.

When you put people to work on your project, keep two things in mind:

  1. You need to add people to your project schedule before.
  2. You can assign them to work on tasks.

This difference is a common source of confusion when working with any project management software.
