     343However, this doesn't seem to be all the data Project records for a task.  If you add a column to the WBS in the Gantt chart, there are many more options.  The most interesting is Work which is the amount of work required to complete a task.  Only when a resource is assigned 100% are Work and Duration the same.  We'd like to be specify the ''work'' required for a task and let the system calculate its ''duration'' based on available resources.
