Allocated Time % versus Duration
Can anyone tell me the correlation between Allocated Time % versus task duration? If I estimate that a task will take 2 days (16 working hours) to complete but then assign someone to it that only can work on it 50% of the time, why will the system automatically create a start and end dates that are consecutive days? Since the person can only work on the task 50% of the time, should it not take 4 days actually to complete working 4 hours per day? Please tell me what I am missing.
