Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

I am applying resources to the activities in progress or completed but the actual is not showing on the activities that have been completed or in progress


Screen 1 - This is before the resource is applied 



Screen 2 - After i applied resource to the activity with original duration 15d, the budgeted labour unit shows 15, remaining labour unit shows 4 which are correct but the Actual labour unit is not showing anything. The actual suppose to show 11

Go to Projects make sure you project is open click on  the Calculations tab on the right under Resource Assignments 

make aure that When updating Actual Units or Costs that 

Subtract Actual from At Completion is checked and that 

Recalculate Actual Units and Costs when duration % complete changes is checked

also make sure that Link Actual and Actual This Period Units and Cost is checked.

I do noticed the same issue with some of my Projects. But practically, Actual Unit and Actual Cost must be recorded manually.

You can work around, export the Resource assignment to excel then the actual units equals multiplying the Budgeted Units by the Performance % of the activity. Import back the Resource assigment then you get the actual units and as well the Actual Cost.
