We use the workload widget that pulls in assignee, timeline and hours (number) columns. I have found it to be inconsistent when an item/task’s timeline has been extended.
This scenario for example:
- Task that initially had a date for 8 Jan with 3 hours (this numbers column needs to stay the same as this is the estimate visible to clients) had been worked on for 1 hours but had to be pushed back to 9 Jan.
- Now it will show in the workload widget that the full 3 hours are allocated on 9 Jan to the assigned, whereas its only 2 hours remaining that needs be be worked on.
I’m wondering if the best solution is to have 2 number columns:
a) Estimated overall time (that will never change unless it is rescoped)
b) Adjusted time left for the assigned to work on
This will mean a bit more manual work but it will reflect better on the workload view.
Is there any better approach to this?
