Assign Partial Resource
Can anyone tell me the best way to accomplish the following:
I have a resource that is available 50% of the time, or up to 20 hours per week. No specific hours that can be planned in a calendar.
I want to assign that resource to a task with a 2 hr duration. When I do this, the work value calcs as 1hr. If I modify the work to force it to 2 hrs, the effort changes to 100% causing an overallocation!
If a resource is available up to 20 hours per week, and they are assigned to do only 2 hours, wouldn't it be reasonable to expect the full 2 hours of work!
Thanks in advance,

Re: Assign Partial Resource
There was an article WPW v1n10 that discussed Contouring Work Assignments that might be helpful. You can find the archived copy at:
It sounds to me like Project is doing what one would expect; if you assign 50% of a resource to a task with a 2 hour duration you get 1 hour of work. Maybe you need to change the resource's working calendar to reflect only 20 hours per week. Or, set the maximum units for the resource to 0.5. Either one should get you what you want.
