I am using the standard calendar. Have a resource available 100% of the time. When I add the first task, a 1 hr task, when I look at the resource graph it shows at 100%, I have it set for an 8 hour day, so I would have thought that the graph would show around 12%. Am I misunderstanding the resource graph or is this a configuration issue?
If I understand what you are trying to accomplish - you have a task with a 1 day (8 hour duration). During that 1 day, you'd like the resource to only work 1 hour?
First - show the Task Form in the lower pane (View Ribbon, Split View group, Details)
Create the task and set the duration to 1 day, and then make sure the task is Fixed Duration. Use the Task form to select Fixed Duration and click OK.
In the task form, select the resource and enter 1 hour of work. Click OK to make the assignment. The Assignment unit will show 100% - but if you show the Resource Usage view Or Task Usage View and add the Peak field - you'll see the peak is 13%.
The Resource Graph will also show 13%.
