Dear all,

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.

Best regards,
Karolina

Hi Knut,

Thaks for your feedback. This is something that we hear from time to time. At the moment we recommend that you create a non-member resource for this fixed cost. You could for instance have a fixed resource called "travel expense" and give it the hourly cost of 10. If you have travel expenses of 100 for a task you just assign and report 10 hours for the "travel expense" resource.

Best regards,
Karolina

Well, this is a workaround. Not fully elegant, though...

Some labels would have to be changed, e.g. "Available units" instead of "available time", and "cost/unit" instead of "cost/hour".

Johannes,

I agree. A terminology change could make this easier and more intuitive. Thanks for your feedback. We might make your lives easier by dividing this type into non-member resources and fixed cost resources.

We'll see how the voting goes.

Best regards,
Karolina
