Equally distributed hourly resource allocation method

Posted on by 5
I have a question about the Resource ALLOCATION METHOD in Dynamics Project Operations.  The existing methods are: None, Full Capacity, Percentage of capacity, Hourly: distribute equally, Hourly: charge in advance.
None of the previous methods fits my need, which is when I assign hours to a resource, these must be distributed equally over the days between the start and end date.  For example: if I assign a resource 10 hours between Monday, May 6 to the 10th, I want it to be assigned 2 hours during each day, 2 on Monday, May 6, 2 on Tuesday, 2 on Wednesday, 2 on Thursday and 2 on Friday 10th May.
Does anyone know and can guide me to resolve this situation?
Thank you
Tengo una pregunta sobre el MÉTODO DE ASIGNACIÓN de Recursos en Dynamics Project Operations.  Los métodos existentes son: Ninguno, Capacidad Plena, Porcentaje de capacidad, Por Horas: distribuir equitativamente, Por Horas: cobrar por adelantado.

Ninguno de los métodos anteriores se ajusta a mi necesidad, que es cuando asigno horas a un recurso, estas deben distribuirse equitativamente entre los días entre la fecha de inicio y finalización.  Por ejemplo: si a un recurso le asigno 10 horas entre el lunes 6 de mayo al 10, quiero que se le asigne 2 horas durante cada día, 2 el lunes 6 de mayo, 2 el martes, 2 el miércoles, 2 el jueves y 2 el viernes 10 de mayo.

¿Alguien sabe y puede orientarme para resolver esta situación?

    I would expect the Allocation Method of "By Hours - Distribute Evenly" to work just as you described. I tested it and it distributed 2 hours each day. Can you tell me what happens when you try that Allocation Method?
