Quick overview of Effort Modes:
|Effort Mode||How is the allocation being calculated?||Additional notes|
|Original Estimate||Based on Original Estimate - evenly distributed over Task's duration taking into account Resource's non working days.||Task have no Original Estimate - the warning is returned.|
a) Work has been logged:
Start date until yesterday - The allocation on the past days is displayed as '0'
Current date (today) to End date - The allocation for the remaining duration is displayed as Remaining Estimate evenly distributed over remaining duration.
b) Work has not been logged:
Past duration (start date until yesterday) - the allocation is displayed as Logged Work evenly distributed over the past duration of the task.
Remaining duration (current date (today) to end date ) - the Remaining estimate is evenly distributed over the remaining duration.
1) If the Task's Remaining estimate value is not set (--) then Original Estimate is used when available.
2) If the Task is scheduled entirely in the future (Start date > = today) then only Remaining Estimate is shown (evenly distributed over Task's duration)
2.1) If there is no Logged Work the warning is returned.
3) Task is entirely in the past (today > end date) only Logged Work is shown.
|Story Points||Based on Story Points - evenly distributed over Task's duration taking into account Resource's non working days.||If the Task has no Story Points the warning is returned.|
