When looking at the 'Availability' field for a Resource in the Staffing Workspace and using the 'Grand Total' View Option, you see a really large number: 374,480 hours.
Is this the maximum number of hours for a resource and why is it so large?
Release : Any
All Time Slice Curve data within Clarity have minimum and maximum date boundaries of Jan. 1, 1900 to Jun. 3, 2079.
The Grand Total 'Availabilty' hours for a Resource using the default, stock Standard Calendar without the Hire or Termination date will have a maximum number of hours = 374,480. This is because the 'Availability' curve will have a (minimum) start date of Jan. 1, 1900 and a (maximum) end date of Jun. 3, 2079. This equates to approximately 179 years.
374,480 total hours / 8 hours per day = 46,810 working days
46,810 days / approximately 261 working days per year = approximately 179 years
If you enter a Date of Hire and/or a Date of Termination, the Grand Total Availability will be adjusted upon update of time slices.
If you set up calendar shifts to alter the daily 'Availability Rate' and alter the calendar working days and non-working days, the Grand Total Availability will be adjusted upon update of time slices.
When viewing 'Sum of Periods' the Resource 'Availability' will be bound by the date range selected within the View Options.
