Managing Daily Capacity in Work Schedules


Account owners and admins can change the daily capacity in account work schedules. On Enterprise accounts, this right can be revoked from admins.

Daily Capacity is a setting in Work Schedules that allows you to change the daily capacity of users from the default 8 hours. This custom daily capacity affects calculations of total allocated effort on Workload charts and in the Resources view.

You can create a custom work schedule with a relevant daily capacity (12 hours, for example), and assign it to all relevant users in your account. Once you do that, Wrike will automatically take the assigned daily capacity into account for calculating capacity on Workload Charts and in the Resources view.


If you have a lot of calendar exceptions, like public holidays or company-wide non-working days, you can duplicate an existing work schedule and just change the daily capacity.

You can create as many custom work schedules with different daily capacity hours as you need.

How to change the custom daily capacity

  1. Click your profile image in the upper-right corner of the workspace and select Settings

  2. Select Work Schedules in the panel on the left

  3. Start by creating a new custom work schedule or selecting one of the existing ones from the list

  4. Click the Edit daily capacity button under Daily capacity

  5. Enter the relevant number of hours per day in the field. You can enter whole values from 1 to 24 or decimal values from 0 to 24, e.g., 4h, 0.5h, 23.2h.

  6. Click Apply changes

Once you set the necessary daily capacity on a newly created work schedule, you can assign it to all relevant users. If you change the daily capacity on an existing work schedule, all users who were assigned that schedule will automatically have the new daily capacity displayed on their Workload Charts and in their Resources view.


If you change the daily capacity in the Default schedule, it will affect full-time equivalents (FTE) calculations in the Resources view.
