Capacity = Plannable weekly working time
The capacity is specified as weekly working time and is evenly distributed over the 5 working days (Mon-Fri).
The default value is 40 hours/week, which corresponds to 8 hours on the days Mon-Fri.
The set capacity effects the chart in the team planner. It defines at which value the chart turns red/overloaded.
Furthermore, it represents the target value for the daily time tracking. The daily capacity, in this case 8 hours, corresponds to the value at which the progress indicator of the time recording is completely green.
Adjusting the own capacity
The own capacity can be edited in the own profile. There, under settings, you'll find a field with the available weekly capacity.
Adjust the capacity of other users
The capacity can be adjusted directly in the team planner. The weekly capacity is displayed next to the user name. This can be edited by clicking on the value, if the user edit permissions are present.
Changes have a direct effect on the team planner timeline, also into the past.
Tip: The capacity does not have to be equal to the working time
In many cases, it makes sense to keep the capacity lower than the actual working time. In this way, a little space is retained for daily, non-project-related activities and gives greater planning certainty.
