Again a question from one of my Blog readers:
I really appreciate your blog…helps me immensely.
I would really be grateful if you could help me on tracking resources exact hours on a standard calendar. I am interested in know resources estimated hours and actual hours worked whilst tracking these both against the standard calendar.
I look forward to your reply.
First I’m going to create New Project in MS PROJECT 2013:
I’ll assign both of them to Task , and Task 2:
I’ll save this as a Baseline:
I’ll switch to the Task Usage View:
OK! I am using Standard Calendar! Now suppose, for example that John has worked on Task 1 24 hours, but he needs extended 32 hours for the Task 1 (e.g. John will work 56 hours on that Task):
As you can see I put 24 hours in Actual, and extended 32 hours in Remaining.
Let’s see Tracking Gantt View:
and Work Table:
If I want to Track Progress day by day I can do this:
and I’ll get:
Now suppose, for example that Mary has worked 8 hours at Task 1 at Thursday and Friday, but has to work 4 hours at Monday as well. I can do it like this:
You can see that Mary must work 20 hours for that Task in Task Usage View:
Hope this helps!
