Today I will show you a bug in Microsoft Project for the Web.
Let’s say that we have two Resources: John and Ellen. At 01/15/2021 John is suppose to work from 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM, and Ellen is not suppose to work at all.
So, let me setup a Resource Calendar for that:
and here we are:
For John, I will repeat steps above and I will setup non working times like this:
So, working time for John looks like:
Now I will create new Project with two Tasks:
Ellen is going to work 32 hours form Monday to Thursday, and that is OK! BUT” Joh is going to work 32 hours as well, which is not OK, because he is suppose to work From Monday to Thursday 8 hours per day which is 4 days * 8 days per day = 32 hours PLUS 4 hours (from 01:00 PM to 05:00 PM) at Friday, which means that John total effort should be 36 hours, not 32 hours.
If you try this scenario in MS PROJECT 2013/2016/2019/ONLINE the result will be correct!
