The 'hours left' (HL) value is designed to allow a user to specify how many hours he plans to use to complete a task, as a way to link the progress value expressed in percentage with working hours.
By default, when an activity is being added, the Hours left field on the Activity details screen is automatically filled with the same number of hours as in the Estimated hours for this activity field.
You can change the HL value at any time.
You can also manually adjust the calculated number of hours left for an activity when making a time entry.
Adjusting hours left using Add time entry button
To adjust HL of an activity:
- Hover on the activity's name and click Details to open Activity Details screen.
- Click "Add time entry".
- Indicate the hours left value in the appropriate field.
