Project adjusts the copyeditor’s assignment on this task so that he works no hours on
Thursday or Friday.
The duration of this task has increased because
the work is over a longer period of time.
Now, in the timephased portion of the view, you can see that zero hours of work are
scheduled for the copyeditor on Thursday and Friday, April 30 and May 1. The other
resource assigned to the task is not affected. Note that the total work of this task did
not change, but its duration did—the finish date moved out two working days.
