Material resources are consumable supplies like bricks. They differ from work resources that they are not counted as hours but as numbers. For certain type of projects material resources are of interest. At present Projectplace takes the material resources from MS Project and puts them as work resources where the numbers are counted as hours. This behaviour upsets the task's resource hour count.
I am not sure how many projects require material resources, but I would suggest at minimum to correct the hour count to zero and ideally to present the material numbers instead.
At the moment we are not focusing development efforts into Tasks as this is a legacy planning product that will be replaced by the new planning tools of Timeline, Activities and Boards.
This means that we will not introduce any new functionality into Tasks.
