Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
Resource spread is not calculated correctly.

In the Resource App, the Resource Spread is not calculated correctly when assigning a Resource at less than 100%.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
In the Analysis view, the allocation of the Resource should be 50% over 30 days (and not 100% over 15 days).

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Make a one Activity Project (30 days) and assign a worker to it at 100% so Planned Hours = 240. The Activity has Duration Type Fixed Duration & Units / Time.
2. Under the Analysis tab, the Resource spread is ok.
3. When changing the Units / Time of the Assignment to 50%, Planned Hours correctly changes to 120 Hours and Planned Start and Finish dates of the Resource Assignment remain equal to those of the Activity. So far, this is as expected given fixed duration.
4. In the Analysis view, however, the allocation of the Resource is assigned for 100% during 15 days and not for 50% over 30 days as it should be.
