Resolution

When Totals are entered for ETC, the application takes the Resource's daily availability rate into consideration for the duration of the assignment and will evenly spread the amount over the working days as per the daily availability rate. This is regardless of the loading pattern. Loading pattern is used by the auto-scheduler functionality.
