I have a fixed-duration task in MS Project that is 2 days in duration and 8 hours of work. When I assign a resource to the task, the resource units are automatically set to 50%. If I change the resource units to 100%, the work is automatically changed to 16 hours.
However, if I set the work back to 8 hours, an error dropdown says "You decreased the amount of work for this task" and gives me 2 options:
- Decrease duration but keep the hours resources work per day (units) the same.
- Decrease the hours resources work per day (units) but keep the same duration.
Now, if I choose option 2, nothing actually changes, and I don't see any errors. Why is this allowed?
