In Jira projects we have a project task called "Project Admin Tasks". It has a start date from the date of the project inception right through to the end of the project i.e. when the project completes and is signed off.
The purpose of this task is so that the team can log ad hoc time for non-development tasks, e.g. meetings, telephone calls, project admin tasks.
So for a week long project we would allow 6 hours time for these types of tasks but the start and end dates would be say 17-Oct-2011 to 21-Oct-2011.
I'm trying to create a similar type of task in MS Project 2010, but despite my efforts I am can't seem to work out how best to implement this.
Is there a standard way to express this type of task in a project plan where the permitted allocation of time is less than the task duration?
