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.

create a resource

assign the resource to each activity

now you have your planned budget

now you can update the schedule with actuals weekly

if the activivity started but not finished put the actual start date and the actual units and the remining units. 

If the activity started and finished put the actual start date, the actual finish date and the actual units

if an activity has sarted and is delayed put the actual strta date and actual units and used the suspend and resume option under status

Another Question

For Example in the Status tab, non-labour unit, there is a data field of budgeted Units,Actual Units,Remaining,At complete. My budgeted units are 50 and my activity is for 5 days.Now on day 1 I want to update the status by entering the data in actual units data field that machine works for 10 hours and same on with 2nd,3rd day but on the 4th day it works for 5 hours and also for the 5th day.So it will use another day I want to show that an activity can be delayed by this to 6 days. is this Possible?
