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.

Hi,

 

I have a calendar running 10 hours per day, 5 days per week. It is assigned as the Activity default calendar. When I create a new activity with a duration of 3 days and then change my User Preference to show Duration in Hours, the hours are only 24 but I expected them to be 30.

 

Why is this happenning? 3 days on a 10 hour per day calendar should be 30 hours but it appears to be referencing an 8 hour day.

 

You help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Rod

you have not set the hours correctly or have not set the correct default calendar

Modify your calendar, and tick the "Time periods" button. These values control the multiplier/divider for hours and days
