New "Finished by..." Ettc Dialog
Per request of many customer a "Finished by..." dialog is introduced in the Task Detail section of My activities and Active Tasks.
Task Managers and Users can now simply also enter a date in response to the question "By when is the task expected to be completed"?
In this new dialog the Ettc value and Expected Completion value are connected and synchronized automatically: If a date is entered of + 5 days (1 week) from now, the Ettc is automatically set at 5 duration days or, if an Ettc is entered of 5 duration days, the Expected Completion date is set at + 5 days.
Furthermore the Task Manager can choose to also update the intensity via the unit %: for example it will take 5 duration days to complete the task, but "only" take 20 hours work to complete. In this case the unit percentage can be set at 50 %:
