The Remaining Overtime Work fields show the amount of remaining scheduled overtime.
There are several categories of Remaining Overtime Work fields.
Data Type Duration (duration field: A type of field whose content is expressed as a duration of time. Examples include the Work, Duration, and Delay fields. A duration field includes the duration unit, such as hour, day, or week.)
Remaining Overtime Work (task field)
Remaining Overtime Work (resource field)
Remaining Overtime Work (assignment field)
Entry Type Calculated or entered (calculated or entered field: A field in which the value is determined by Project based on information in other fields. Information that you enter in the field yourself overrides calculated values.)
How Calculated When overtime work is first scheduled on an assignment and no overtime work has been reported, the Remaining Overtime Work field contains the same amount as the total scheduled Overtime Work field. Once actual overtime work is reported on this assignment, Microsoft Office Project calculates Remaining Overtime Work according to the following formula:
Remaining Overtime Work = Overtime Work - Actual Overtime Work
Best Uses Add the Remaining Overtime Work field to the timephased portion of the Task Usage or Resource Usage view when you want to edit, display, or filter for remaining overtime work information for assignments. Edit the Remaining Overtime Work field for the assignment when you need to increase or reduce the amount of overtime that's needed to complete the task.
Example The "Write proposal" task assigned to Chris is scheduled for eight hours of overtime. Chris has just informed you that four hours of additional overtime will be needed to complete this task. You add the Remaining Overtime Work field to the Task Usage view, and edit the field to add four more hours of remaining overtime work for this assignment.
