Issue/Introduction

After running allocate from estimates, ETC and allocation do not match:

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Add ETCs in a task for a user
  2. Go to the Team tab and select Actions>Allocate from estimates.

 Results: The ETC in the team tab show correct at 55 hours, but the allocation is increased to 64.42. Why is the allocation higher than the ETC? Where is this coming from?

Cause

This is due to the Round Allocations to Nearest % being set to a higher amount such as 25%. This is a setting that is set out of the box that performs a rounding on the allocations. 

Environment

Release : All

Component : CLARITY RESOURCE MANAGEMENT 

Resolution

To change the default value:

  1. Go to "Administration" and under "Project Management" go to "Settings"
  2. On the top of the right side look for "Round Allocations to Nearest %"
  3. By default it should say "25", change the value to "1" and save.
  4. You will then need to open the Project and go to "team" and Allocate from Estimates again, this should correct the allocation numbers.
