Effort: day by day?

As far as I have seen in the documentation (see: https://help.wrike.com/hc/en-us/articles/1500005128261#UUID-f42ea63a-b46a-2f67-0ba3-639342a6136b) , it is not possible to define the effort day by day?

So the following use case is not covered by the effort/workload view:

One employee should work for a specific task in the next week only on Monday/Tuesday and Thursday/Friday (e.g., because of a customer requirement or an important other project on Wednesday). So I'll have a task from Monday to Friday with an effort of 32 hours. I want to split it into 8/8/0/8/8. However, it seems to be impossible to create such a common scenario. Wrike should offer a fourth selection (effort type) to define the hours day by day (or to unselect specific dates). 

 

Thank you!

 

Bonus: If you are in the Workload view, double-clicking the daily effort for a task should make the field editable to change the effort on the selected day.

Hi Sebastian Nemetz, thank you for posting. Just to clarify, may I ask if you've considered using flexible effort? Using this effort mode, you can split the total effort differently for each day of the task's duration and for each assignee.

Cansu: Thank you for suggesting the flexible effort type.

I tried it before but I did not succeed, however, now I found out, that I had to use the Workload section. I always tried to define the hours in the task view where this is not possible. 

But yes, this is more or less what I wanted. The effort field is editable and the effort can be defined day by day. So I have to use the Workload section to allocate the time, this is fine for me!
