7.5hr day still results in 8hr default tasks Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi All,

I'm hoping there's an easy solution to this:

My organisation uses a 7.5 hour working day, so I've changed both the Normal Working Week and the Project: Unit Conversions data from the default 8 hour working day to use 7.5 hours.

However when I enter a task, its default duration is 1 day 0.5 hours, e.g. it is still using the default 8 hour working day settings.

Can this be adjusted? Any tips appreciated!

Create a task that is in all ways how you want your newly created tasks to be* background color, duration, effort, etc. Select Project->Set as Default for New Tasks and all tasks you subsequently create for the project will use that as a template. (Note however that if you change your "template" the existing tasks will not update, OmniPlan just takes a snapshot of what your task looked like at the time you issued the command).
Ah! Simple :)

Thanks for the tip, much appreciated.
