Future Scheduled Hours are the number of hours scheduled on a project from the current date through the end of a project.

When looking at the Projects section of your schedule, click the clock icon in the title bar to view the Future Scheduled Hours in your Forecast account. In addition to Future Scheduled Hours for each project as a whole, each project will be broken down to show the number of hours remaining for each person assigned to the project.

Future Scheduled Hours will update in real time as you add and remove assignments from your Projects, always keeping the team up to date on how many hours are left to work on the project, both on the whole, and on a per-person basis.

Note: The Future Scheduled Hours numbers aren’t affected by navigating the schedule.

Remaining Budgeted Hours

If your Forecast account is linked to a Harvest account, the remaining hourly budgets from your Harvest account will be displayed below the Future Scheduled Hours of a project.

You’ll be able to quickly see where you stand with regards to your current plan for the remainder of a project and you can make adjustments on the fly. If you have more Future Scheduled Hours than your budget, you may need to tighten things up a bit! Conversely, if you’ve got a little wiggle room in your budget, you can add some additional design time to give the project that extra coat of polish!

Future Scheduled Hours is just the first step in integrating scheduled hours in Forecast with budgeted hours from Harvest. This insight between your remaining budget and your scheduled hours will give you up-to-date insights on your works in progress.
