Task Hours

Weekly Planning Mode

Estimated Hours/Budgeted Hours

This is the estimated amount of time a task takes to be completed. A task's estimated hours are synced in from WFM and are displayed in the 'Update task' modal. In 'Assign mode' on the dashboard, it is displayed as 'Hours budgeted' against each task.


Allocated Hours

This is the time allocated to each staff member for a task. Allocated hours are not synced to WFM. Allocated hours are displayed on the dashboard and in 'Assign mode.' In the 'Jobs' tab it is displayed as 'Effort' for each task. Each task allocation on the dashboard will have its own corresponding line in the 'Jobs' tab.


Logged Hours

This is the time logged against a task. Staff can log hours within PlanRight or WFM. Logged time is displayed in the Timesheets tab and is synced both to & from WFM. Logged hours are displayed on the dashboard (when hovering over a task), in the 'Update task' modal, and in 'Assign mode.'


Remaining Hours

This is the estimated time against a task minus any logged time. Remaining hours are displayed on the dashboard (when hovering over a task) and in the 'Update task' modal.



Monthly Planning Mode

Estimated Hours

A task's estimated hours are synced in from WFM and are displayed on the dashboard for each task and in the 'Update task' modal. It is also displayed as 'Days Planned' above the capacity bar on the dashboard. In the 'Planner' it shows as the total number hours of 'Fixed' & 'Variable' work for each month and in the column of unscheduled work. In the 'Jobs' tab it is displayed as 'Effort' for each task.


Logged Hours

It's displayed as 'Days Completed' above the capacity bar on the dashboard and in the 'Update Task' modal. The 'Timesheets' tab is also accessible in Monthly Planning Mode, so the logged hours are displayed there as well.


Remaining Hours

Remaining hours are only displayed in the 'Update Task' modal in Monthly Mode.

All hours are used when calculating staff capacity in both Weekly & Monthly planning modes.


Estimated Hours Remaining

In the Update Task modal, you can manually enter estimated hours remaining on a task. This is not synced to WFM or used in capacity calculations.
