Is it possible to set the 'Default Load Pattern' for creating assignments on Custom Investment types?
Yes, the Custom Investments respond to the same settings configured in Administration, Project Management, Settings page.
From this point in time, all new assignments created on Projects and Custom Investments will use this new 'Default Load Pattern'.
In the screenshot below, the default is set to 'Uniform' - all new assignments will be created with a 'Uniform' Load Pattern setting.
The Load Pattern field is used for Autoschedule and currently Custom Investments do not have the capability for using Autoschedule.
If the Load Pattern value is set to 'Fixed' it will impact how ETC is determined when Actuals are posted.
