Is it possible to allocate unequal work hours for a resource on Big Picture Resource planning?

I am trying to resource planning on Big Picture. I need to allocate different work hours on different days for a resource. Let me explain using an example. Say at Ticket TKT-1010 is assigned to Mr.X with the following estimate

start date 14th Feb, 2019

end date: 20th Feb 2019,

Original Estimate - 24h

So, Big Picture will allocate 6h each day form 14th Feb to 20th Feb. However, in our scenario, the resource has to work

  • 8h on day1, 
  • 8h on day2,
  • 6h on day 3 and
  • 2h on day 4.

Can this be achieved using big picture resource planning? If not, is there a work around?

We are working on this functionality.

Firstly, we are planning to release ONE-21129 - users will be able to select a front- or back-loaded workload contouring mode so that a task effort could be distributed starting from the beginning or starting from the end of the task duration.

In the next phase, we will release ONE-2841 - a manually configurable workload.

In case of having trouble accessing the link, you may try Incognito.



Thanks for your response, Patryk.

Could you please let me know a tentative timeline by when you plan to release this feature for the cloud version?
