Effort is a task attribute that shows how much time is required to complete a task. It can be different from duration, which indicates the time period within which an assignee should complete the task.
For example, a task can span multiple days but require only several hours of work a day from each of its assignees.
When you create a task, it doesn't have effort by default. Tasks without effort can be used as:
Action items that don't require time to complete.
Non-action items: meetings notes, specifications, etc.
To effectively manage your resources, specify effort for all action items which require time to complete.
Since milestones don’t have a duration, effort can’t be applied to them.
