Web Resource supports three types of calculation modes:

  • Allocation %
  • Duration
  • Total Hours

When a resource is assigned to a Project/Task, the resource assignment duration can be calculated either based on the 'Allocation %', the 'Duration' or the 'Total Hours'.
The default calculation mode can be setup by following the steps listed below:

  • Log into Web Resource as an administrator or with administrative privileges.
  • Click on Administration in the top menu, then click on System Preferences under System section in the side menu.
  • On the Edit Preferences screen, under General Preferences, set the Default Calculation Mode.
  • Click on Save.

If the Default Calculation Mode is set to Duration, then the system calculates the duration of a resource assigned to a task based on the Total Hours that are entered. If the Default Calculation Mode is set to Allocation %, then the system calculates the percentage allocation of the resource on a Task or Project based on the Duration and Total Hours Provided. And when the Default Calculation Mode is set to Total Hours, the system calculates the Total Hours a user needs to work on the Task or Project based on the Duration and the Allocation % defined.
