Hi all,
I'm trying to monitor my projects with org-mode. I'd like to make time
estimates for different
activities and then monitor time spent on the activities. In the manual I
found

#+PROPERTY: Effort_ALL 0 0:10 0:30 1:00 2:00 3:00 4:00 5:00 6:00 7:00
#+COLUMNS: %40ITEM(Task) %17Effort(Estimated Effort){:} %CLOCKSUM

which works.

But I'd like to make estimates in days, weeks or even months. And have spent
time displayed in
percentage of the estimate. Is this possible?

Best regards
Johan

Not that I'm aware of.  I break tasks down and estimate the smaller bits
(up to a day).

Regards,
Bernt

You can certainly do that. Have a look at org-effort-durations. You
could for example define the effort as '2d', '4w' or '7m'.

You might be able to do something along this line. Have a look at the
doc string of org-properties-postprocess-alist where it gives you an
example on how to calculate the remaining time (clocked vs estimated).

Thank you,

I've changed to

#+PROPERTY: Effort_ALL 2d 1w 2w 3w 4w 2m
#+COLUMNS: %40ITEM(Task) %17Effort(Estimated Effort){:} %CLOCKSUM

but there is no mapping between days, weeks, months and hours. For example,
'2d' + '1w' is summed as '3:00'. How can I change this?

The best for me would be to have the summed effort in weeks.

Best regards,
Johan

Ah, according to http://orgmode.org/org.html#Column-attributes the {:}
sums the times and treats the times as "HH:MM, plain numbers are hours".
I guess this is a bug? You can define efforts in terms of weeks, etc.
Some parts of org-mode respect it but column view apparently not. Sorry.
Patches or even just proper bug reports are welcome.

Thanks
