Estimated vs Actual Time
How does everyone accurately document their Estimated Time vs Actual Time Spent on tasks for a project?
Currently, in our planning process we assign a Start Date and an End Date for each task (with allocation %, duration, and predecessors for each task) once the person assigned to the task acknowledges and begins working, they update their % complete until task is complete. We know when the task is 100% complete but when we look back at the project we cant see if they actually finished the task in 1 day when we estimated 2, etc.
How do you all keep up with this without the person assigned to a task manually changing start date, end date, allocation %, duration?
