    Hey everyone, a quick update here; the Product team recently released custom allocation limits in the Workload chart in Labs! Through this, you can change the daily limit for team members in the Workload chart. You can activate this through this link. I've changed the status of this suggestion to "Investigating" to reflect this Labs release. Let us know what you think!

    Hey, it should be very helpful to be implemented by work shedules. It's just the way other programs work. Thank you.

    I've shared this feedback with the product dev team but sharing it here w/ the post as well. 

    --

    While I think this Labs feature has solid potential, it still needs some development.

    We would need to be able to customize the available hours by day for most of our users. Because our staff includes some student staff and part-time staff whoโ€™s hours vary by day, having the custom allocation limit the same for every day of the week just doesnโ€™t work.

    Example:

    1. Student A works 20 hours per week โ€“ 4 hours Monday, 6 hours Wednesday, 4 hours Thursday, and 6 hours Friday
    2. Student B works 15 hours per week โ€“ 6 hours Tuesday, 3 hours Wednesday, & 6 hours Thursday
    3. Part-Time Employee works 20 hours per week โ€“ 8 hours Tuesday, 6 hours Wednesday, 6 hours Thursday but may flex those days week-to-week depending on the workload

    With the ability to flex the capacity by day for a user, it would be a game-changing functionality for us. We are still currently using the work-around I mentioned in my original post by having a recurring task that blocks off the hours they are not in the office.  It can be a little confusing to people and definitely is hard to really report on and calculate available capacity for projects based on that. It works okay, but itโ€™s certainly not ideal.

    It would be great if this could be set for a user in their work schedule, the same as how we block off their unavailable days today but to also have the ability to easily change it in the workload chart would be amazing for days where they may adjust their schedule (doing this in the work schedule for that week would be fine too - workload chart would be perfect state).

    I agree with everything Kelly Hanson suggests. Flexibility in #of hours per day and days of the week are necessary, especially in this day and age! 

    I also would like to see the same flexibility when adding vacation/PTO, so that we can apply 1-8 hrs not just an 8hr day. Without this, my team will not be able to use this function for personal PTO scheduling. 

    Thanks!

    Hey everyone!

    As Custom Capacity Allocation is out of Labs and is now officially a part of Wrike, I've changed the status of this post to "Launched". Thank you for sharing your feedback here! Our Product team has found it invaluable in their conversations about this idea.

    Can we get a status of updating the work schedules to set the hours per day (not the workload chart workaround)?  This is critical for our teams as well (see Kelly's original and updated post).
