Fixed Units vs. Fixed Work vs. Fixed Duration

Effort Driven scheduling. It would have been nice had MS Project done a better job of explaining how this works. Christ.

Been trying to enter in actual hours worked (as opposed to estimated), and watching Project change all sorts of things so I couldn't seem to get the hours worked and finish time both entered correctly. Just figured out that was because new tasks are set as Effort Driven though I am not sure if turning that off gives me what I want.

Also, been trying to find in the online help where I can change the default work contour to flat. Be damned if I can find the default setting.


  • Last post

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

  • Unemployed

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
