I'm using MS Project 2010. When assigning a task with duration say 5 days and work of say 10 hours. Then MSP distributes the occupation for that resource over the whole duration.
Mon 2h | Tue 2h | Wed 2h | Thu 2h | Fri 2h
So far so good, assume I'm 1 day away from the end date and set the % completed to 20%, i.e. the remaining hours are 8h. How can I make MSP to set the occupation for that resource such, that it has to do 8h in the last day?
Mon 0.5h | Tue 0.5h | Wed 0.5h | Thu 0.5h | Fri 8h
I know the feature Task->Move->Incomplete Parts to Status Date That almost does the trick, but using that feature increases the duration. I would like to fix the duration and the work, and simply change the work per day.
I could simply assign the actual work per day in the resource assignment view, but that seems to be somewhat cumbersome if I have hunderts of tasks...
