Work in Vue Gantt component

The work is the total hours required to complete a task. Work can be mapped from the data source field using the property taskFields.work. Work can be measured in Hour, Day, Minute. By default, work is measured in Hour and it can be changed, by using the property workUnit.

Note: When the work field is mapped from the data source, the default task type will be FixedWork.

Task type

The work, duration and resource unit fields of a task depends upon each other and will change automatically on editing any one of these fields. But we can also set these field’s values as constant using the taskType property. FixedUnit is the default taskType. The following values can be set to the taskType property,

  • FixedDuration - Duration task field will remain constant while updating resource unit or work field.
  • FixedWork - Work field will remain constant while updating resource unit or duration fields.
  • FixedUnit - Resource units will remain constant while updating duration or work field.
