Project for the web : Tasks effort not linked to duration
We should be able to specify a effort on a tasks that is less than a working day without affecting the duration.
Example : I have a resource on my project that is shared with other teams. I only have him/her 2 hours a day, and this time for 10 working days is enough to complete the task. So I want to have a task with 10 working days duration with a total effort of 20 hours.
In the current state, if I indicate the duration, it will automatically change the effort to a full day work (80 hours), if I change the effort it will adjust the end date and the duration to the number of full day work it represents.
I love the product but this (and the resource management) are a big stopper for now.
Thanks for the feedback – we plan on unlinking effort and duration. We’ll keep you updated here in UserVoice

Probably, this is currently bug.
you should be able to have this scenario on task:
- effot total: 6 hours
- effort completed: 2 hours
- effort remaind: 4 hours
- duration: 15 hours
currently duration is linked to effort total, which is nonsense :P
I saw in the early tests that some tasks I've made had a effort value different for the duration, but I can't reproduce it. Is it something only I have? Is it a bug? If someone have the same issue, please let us know :)
