(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.

Actual Labor Units Should Not be Budgeted Labor Units If Performance is not as per baseline

Hi experts,

 

After I enter actual progress (by changing remaining duration), I also want to change actual or remaining Labor Budgeted Units.  I know by default they also change in proportion to Duration % but may be resource has worked less or more so I would want to change it. I can change it, no problem.

 

But the problem is this that when i will mark the activity as 'Finished', the Actual Labor Budgeted Units will always change back and equivalent to Budgeted Labor Units. Software should rather calculate remaining/actual labor units as per past labor unit performance I entered i.e at activity finish, they should be less or more than Budgeted.

 

So, is there a way to let software do not make actual labor units = budgeted labor units but rather calulate remaining/actual as according to last performance.
