UPDATE: so don't worrry, I was doing something wrong. :)

First of all thanks alot. This is a great tool.

 

Now I was wondering if I am doing something wrong because when I work on a task and it had for example 5 hours completed, after working on it for 1.5 hours it sets the hours completed to 1.5. I did the mapping in configuration for the task, I am wondering if I am doing something wrong.

 

Thanks in advance.

 

God Bless!

Hi

Sorry for the delayed reply. If the mapping field you have for Completed work already contains a value, any additional intervals should be added to it. Check the message in the history that TFS Working On puts there that the period record is what you expect and that the changed fields are the ones mapped.

Any other information you have so we can work this out would be helpful.

Regards

Matthew Rowan

Also the estimate will not be reduced so that you can report off Remaining Work, which does get reduced, for a burn down chart. The completed work vs the estimate can be used when the task is resolved so the estimation accuracy can be tracked.

Cheers
