Resource Management
I've got a sheet going that lists all of my active projects. Each project has a deadline (in its own "Deadline" column, Archives Department remaining hours (in its own "Archives Hours Remaining" column), Digitization Department's remaining hours (in its own "Digitization Hours Remaining" column), and Platform Department's remaining hours (in its own "Platform Hours Remaining" column).
I need help in knowing what columns to add and what formulas to devise in order to figure out my staffing needs by month per each of the three departments.
Thinking something along the lines of "based on the "Deadline" column and the "Archives Hours Remaining" column, how many hours would be required per month to evenly span the remaining hours between now and the deadline".
I imagine I'd need columns for each month, but would need help in the formulas and mapping of data.
Does anyone do anything like this currently, or can someone help me with these formulas?

Scratch the above.
I've got columns for "Deadline" "Remaining Hours" and then for monthly "FTE's needed" (a different column for each month from "now into the future".
I'm hoping to come up with a unique formula inside of each of the "monthly columns" that basically equals "how many hours are needed to be worked within each month IF we spread out each line item's remaining hours between "today and the deadline".
I hope this makes a bit more sense.
Oh, and if the "remaining hours" is in the negative, than this negative hours shouldn't be counted/tracked nor should items that have "deadlines" in the past..
