With the multi-day task scheduling capability, one can plan a task spanning over multiple days or weeks that specific days and hours your team will be working. For any task, the multi-day task hours are set by dividing the total task hours and assigning them on different days with a specific number of hours per day. A task that requires multiple days to complete by a resource. The Importance of Advance Task Planning Advanced Task Planning avoids having to create duplicate tasks for the same task. When a single task requires multiple days to complete with specific/variable numbers of hours each/different day without creating a duplicate task. E.g. If a task requires 20 hours to complete and is to be worked on 4 hours each day for a span of 5 days. Join 10,000+ Successful Businesses Who Manage Their Work Using Orangescrum Sign Up – It’s Free! How to Implement Advanced Task Planning in Orangescrum First of all, you need to enable estimation hour splitting for your company option from the resource setting. Once this option is enabled, a split icon will be shown beside the “Estimated Hours” field on Create/Edit task page. Also, this split icon will be visible on the task detail page beside the “Est. Hours” column. Clicking on the Split icon will open a popup allowing you to plan your task hour spanning across the day. One can set the number of hours a task owner is expected to spend on the task each day. The hours per day is the number of hours a user spends on the task each day across the task schedule. If the work per day is 2 hours for a span of 5 days, then the task is allotted 10 hours for completion. If a user wants to set total work hours as 10, he can either set 2 hours for 5 days or set 3, 3, and 4 hours for each day. Click the Reset button to remove the split task hour.
