Task Types in Microsoft Project for the Web


Today I will show you what kind of Task Types are available in Microsoft Project for the Web.

As we know, in Project desktop version Fixed Units, Fixed Duration, and Fixed Work, are available. In Microsoft Project for the Web, as today, only one type is available –  Fixed Duration.

Let me show you.

First I will show you resource availability in PowerApps:




and finally:


OK! Now let’s see John’s working time (to get that I will click on John #):

As you can see, John is supposed to work 8 hours per day!

Now, let’s see Mary’s working time:


Now, I will go to Project and I will create one:


For both Tasks I put 8 hours for Effort, and I’ve got 1 day  duration, no matter that John is supposed to work 8 hours per day and Mary only 4 hours per day.

Hope this helps.
