Default Actual working hours per day

I have a team of resources who complete projects, but their daily is interrupted by other tasks, phone calls, meetings etc.

Their standard daily hours are 7.5 hours, but I want to restrict their working time on a project to 6.5 hours to take into account interruptions.

I have currently done this by changing the working time, but, this affects the cost calculations, as they should be paid for all 7.5 even though only 6.5 are allocated to a project.

Is there a better way to do this? Should I be using the resoure available units?

Have you changed the hours per day to 6.5 in the Options, schedule? If you try this remember to change the hours per week as well.

Hi Paul,
I'm sorry there is no method to have the cost calculated based upon 7.5 hours per day but have the duration based upon 6.5 hours per day. Cost is always based upon work - so changing assignment units will change the duration - but the work will remain the same. The best I can suggest is to adjust the cost so the rate of 7.5 per day is applied to a 6.5 hour day.
