Planned vs. Actual Hours for Tasks

Planned vs Actual is a feature that indicates the work progress of the user based on the difference in their planned and actual hours. You can view both the total planned hours of a user and the actual hours spent by the user in a project. The difference between the planned and actual hours indicates the progress of the project user. Planned hours is calculated based on the work hours allocated for the task assigned to the user and actual hours spent is calculated based on the user's timesheets and timers.
