I have a very interesting question from one of my Blog Readers:
I want to put different overtime Work for a Task and Resources. Let’s say that I have Task1, and John an Mary are assigned to it. Task has 2 days Duration, which means that John and Mary will work 16 hours (8 hours each day). but I want John to work 12 hours first day (8 hours Regular work, and 4 hours overtime work) at FIRST DAY, and Mary has to work the same way on the Second day. How to accomplish that?”
OK! I will show you how, and IF by using MS PROJECT 2016!
First I’m going to create brand New Project with one Task – 2 days duration:
Now, I’m going to create two Resources, john and Mary:
and I will assign them to the Task:
Now, I’m going to switch to the Task Usage View:
As you know, John is supposed to work 12 hours on Monday (8 hours Regular work, and 4 hours Overtime work), and Mary has to work the same way on Tuesday. what I have to do I to assign John 12 hours in Work field, and 4 hours in Overtime work field on Monday, and the same for Mary but at Tuesday. firs I am going to show Overtime work field on the right side of Task Usage view:
Now I’m ready!
Do you see those, Ovt. Work fields? They are not editable! So, you can not! put 4 hours for John as Overtime work at Monday, and for Mary at Tuesday.
However, you can follow this steps:
and you will se on Task usage View.
So, Overtime work is set to 4 hours per John and Mary, but it is evenly distributed, and you can NOT change that per day!
