    You cannot fill more than 24 hours per task on a particular day. It is not possible for resource/user to work more than 24 hours a day and hence, we do not allow this. Can you explain why do you require your resource to enter more than 24 hours per day?

    The reason why i require a resource to enter more than 24hours per day on a task is because i do not wish to update task progress or actual worked hours  on a day to day basis.

    Within our organization, we update our progress weekly or monthly hence our request of allowing a resource to be able to enter any amount of hours per task.

     

    Example: Resource 1 has only worked on task 1 (8h/day) during the whole Week 1. We wish that Resource 1 updates its actual worked hours at the end of Week 1 and thus key in 40hours for Task 1

    Thanks for the explanation.

    Your users can enter time at the end of the week, but the time cannot be more than 24h for 1 day. Your users can fill time from the Weekly Time screen so that they can fill time in one go instead for doing a progress updates on the task.

    Thank you for your quick response.

     

    I am aware of this feature, however i wish to distinguish the filling time feature from the task progress update and actual hours worked.

    The time spent by a resource on a task does not necessarily represent the expected task progress: If a resource has worked 5 hours (100%effort) on a 10hours long task, it doesn't necessarly means that the task progress is 50%. There are many parameters that can put a task off schedule and require much more work than expected.

    If i configure task progress as per timesheets entries, we won't be able to monitor the task actual progress VS the actual worked hours. This is why is need to distinguish Time from Actual worked hours from task progress updates.

     

    The other alternative would be to be able to show time entries on a tabular task report. These time entries will be considered as actual worked hours and won't be linked to task progress.
