I'm trying to create a detailed Gantt chart, using MS Project 2013, for a project in one of my courses.
Being a student, I'm not working the same number of hours every day. For example, I may have a task to complete that I know will take about 4 hours, but I will start it Monday, and finish it Tuesday. I haven't been able to translate this to the Gantt Chart in MS Project.
Every time I set the percent work completed to 100% and set my start date, then a finish date a day later, it changes my duration to 16 hours and work complete to 25%. I can't seem to get it to stop auto calculating the times, which is really inconvenient due to the irregular and sporadic nature of the time I have available to work on this project.
tl;dr What I want is to set a start date, the date I actually finished it, % complete, the # of hours I think it will take, and the actual # of hours it took me.
