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 have notice now , that primavera automatically calculates the budgeted units / time as equal to 1 , whenever i assign a resource to an activity....accordingly it calculates the Budgeted units...For eg if an activity is having 6 days duration , budgeted units taken by primavera is 6etc......

My earlier settings, was that , it calculates Budgeted units...whenever i assign a resource is as given below i.e.

Budget units = 8hrs (working hours per day) X duration of the activity.....

I want to return back to my earlier settings , can anyone guide me , how do i return back to my earlier settings???

The settings that controls the default unit/time of resource is under Resource-> Detail tab. Change Default Unit/Time of the resource use to 8.00/d.

Note: Planning unit setting control the unit/time. Under Users Preferences-> Time Units tab-> Unit Format. If hour is selected then Default unit/time = 8.00/d, if day is selected then 1.00/d
