Currently, the project template only offers the Project Estimated Hours field, not Task Estimated Hours. In other words, you cannot currently look at Task Estimated Hours in the same report as Future Estimated Hours (which can only be calculated using Estimated Hours (all dates) - Estimated Hours (selected dates) when the date range is from the beginning of the project to the current date).

In the task template, Estimated Hours (all dates) is not available, so Future Estimated Hours cannot be calculated.

I don't see any downside to adding Task Estimated Hours as a predefined column to the project template. Can this please be done?

Hi Leonard,

The project template ideally brings up only project related information. The task estimated hours can be tracked in other templates like Task Team Time, Expense Cost and Billing Template. May we know the columns that you have used for the report creation so we check the feasibility of configuring the same columns in other report templates.

Thanks,
Aashnee

Future Estimated Hours. Please see my original post for how that's calculated. I currently can't get Future Estimated Hours and Task Estiamted Hours in the same report. Do you have a solution for that?

Hi Leonard,

Would you be available for a short call to help me understand this further. I would like to view in the project screen where do you track the future estimated hours of a project.

Thanks,

Hi Aashnee, a specialist is already looking into this for me. Please let me know if adding Task Estimated Hours to the "Project Team Time, Expense Cost & Billing template project template" can be done.
