Issue/Introduction

PM has edited team tab, added ETC's in tasks for user, returned to the team tab>Actions>Allocate from estimates. The ETC in the team tab show correct 55 hours , but the allocation is increased to 64.42. Why is the allocation higher than the ETC? Where is this coming from?

 

 

Environment

Release : 15.5

Component : CA PPM SAAS APPLICATION

Resolution

There is a setting that is set out of the box that performs a rounding on the allocations. 

To change the default value, go to "Administration" and under "Project Management" go to "Settings"

On the top of the right side look for "Round Allocations to Nearest %" and by default it should say "25", change the value to "1" and save.

You will then need to open the Project and go to "team" and Allocate from Estimates again, this should correct the allocation numbers.
