[Status: Backburner ⌛️] Ability to amend working hours per day

Wrike currently defaults to an 8 hour working day.

I would like to be able to change this as I have some team members who are only utilised 50% of the time.

We use Wrike for development (agile method).

Each developer estimate how much "actual" development each task will take

After daily scrums and breaks we know that the developers only have about 6 hours to actually do development.That means 30 hours a week 10 less that the standard 40.  Therefore, this gives me a completely inaccurate delivery date.

Hey everyone, some good news!

You can now customise how many hours in a day your team has in the Workload Chart through a feature in Labs. You can read more about the capabilities of this feature in this Help Centre article.

Be sure to check it out and let us know what you think.

@... To be more transparent, that improvement is only available for accounts with Wrike Professional Services or the Wrike Resource add-on. For the rest of us, the Gantt Chart quickly becomes obsolete if we want to do any hourly planning...

Our company is resorting back to more and more MS Project licences, which is really taking away the focus from Wrike for us. We need to be able to plan with at least a 12-hour work day in the Gantt Chart. Ideally a 24hr day so that we can manage shift work.

For our project management we need to plan tasks by the hour, not allocate how many hours each user has "available" per day (although I can see the benefit of that in other scenarios). 

Is there any recent news on this? Will it progress before the new UX is launched? Or is all the development focus on the new UX right now? Thanks!

Hi Soraya Jung, thank you for taking the time to share your feedback here and insight here.
 
At the moment, there are no plans to implement this function in any other views in Wrike, including the Gantt Chart. I understand that this will come as disappointing news, but rest assured that your feedback has been passed on to the Product team. These plans are subject to change, and if there is any new information about this request, I'll be sure to keep you posted. Please do let me know if I can be of further assistance here.
 
Hey Marek Dziedzic, glad to hear you're enjoying this feature. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out at any time.

@... Super helpful comment from Soraya Jung! I'm frustrated by reading about helpful features in Wrike only to later discover we can only get those if we "upgrade" aka, spend more money.

I have a week of half-days planned, but I can't alter my schedule for that week to remind team members I will be unavailable each afternoon. Roadblocks like this discourage the use of Wrike on our team and make my job as Wrike cheerleader more difficult.
