Task Utilization


Introduction

Optimizing Task Utilization is an important part of Utilization planning. Task Utilization percentage determines if a task is a full-time or a part-time one. All Tasks are by default full-time (100%). While planning Resources, you should have the control over the priorities. For you to have that control, Task Utilization can be set manually. 

Must-know about this feature

You can manually set Task Utilization percentage or how much Busy Time the Task should take each business day. Task Utilization affects Resource Capacity Utilization Percentage

Set the Utilization Percentage

  1. Plan a Task or open a Task Dialog
  2. You can do the latter by clicking on a Task-bar.
  3. Insert the desired Utilization percentage to the text box under 'Utilization'
  4. You'll find it in the Timing section of the Task Dialog.
  5. Click on 'Save' once you are done
  6. The Utilization percentage of the Task is now changed.
If you want to take your Utilization planning to the next level and have planned a Task throughout a week (Monday to Friday), but you know that it takes every day just 2 hours to complete it, change the Busy Time field to 10 hours. Utilization percentages will be recalculated accordingly. In this case, the Utilization of the task will be 22%.
