Hi All

I hope someone can help

Is there a way to change the units of "work" on the project online schedule view and project centre view?

Most PMs in my company work in days rather than hours in the desktop file, but when a project gets uploaded it seems to switch in the above views to hours. 

Thanks for your help

Matt

I regret to inform you that even though you can display Work in Days in the Microsoft Project application, it is not possible to display Work in Days in either the Project Center page in PWA or in the Schedule PDP. Sorry, but hope this helps.

Hi @Dale Howard 

Thanks for getting back to me.

That is frustrating, I'll have to do a calculated column in the project centre to convert hours to days and educate the team in using hours moving forward rather than days.

Thanks again

Matt
