Resource Planning in nTask

  • You can also assign a role to each of your resources and associate an hourly cost and the estimated number of hours that the resource will take.
  • Doing so will automatically update the estimated cost of each resource and a total estimated cost of the whole project.

Actual Project Costs

Actual project costs work on approved timesheet hours that each team member submits to their supervisors. Once approved, the relevant team member's approved work hours will be reflected in the actual project cost shown on the project's Gantt view on the top-right.

Actual Project Costs are calculated by the following formula: Total number of approved hours worked x Resource hourly rate as defined in the Resource Planner    

And that’s it!
