Duration in Hours
I am testing SmartSheet in an effort to organize projects in our design and manufacturing company. Many of our projects have tasks that are less than a day in duration. We typically estimate jobs in hours. I have been testing the program using fractions for duration but when I link these tasks the program seems to allocate a day in the Start and End date colums even if I set the duration for 0.125 days. If I assign the same resource to a task that takes 0.125 days and then a linked task (Start to Finsh) that takes 0.5 days it will show that it takes two days to complete in the Gantt chart. Is there anyway to change the duration column to hours? I saw in one post that this is a feature that should be available in Mid June 2015.
