#34 Hour/Minutes/Seconds granularity of task duration


Currently (speaking of 1.97) it is not possible to have
task with a duration less than 1day. This is not
everytime a practical duration because there are for
sure a lot of tasks that do not need one complete day.
So it would be good to have "floating point" durations
such as 0.25 or 0.5 etc.

    second that!

    We don't hav to come to minute, but a scale of 1/4th of a
    working day would be nice.

    I would also like to stste that this is something i'm
    missing. I'm currently looking into the functionality of
    ganttprojects t osee if it is a canditate for adoption in
    the company i work for, and this is about the first thing i
    stumbled upon, well, as a matter of fact, didnt stumble upon :)

    I'd definitly appreciate this! Would be very handy. Now I
    got to 'group' tasks to reach the 1 day, which is not very

    I'd like to add my support to this feature request.

    This is a crucial feature that currently blocks adoption of
    this tool by my company. The smallest incremental value we
    would like to see would be a single hour.

    This one would also be crucial to me. I think a minimum of
    30 minutes would be great... but it'd really be great to be
    able to schedule tasks of 5 minutes or so. And of course,
    being able to schedule them at 12:05 or 16:30 would also be
    a great improvement.

    At my work, we want to use GanttProject. But we need more
    granularity in duration : at least half day (we could type
    '0.5' in duration field)...
    Thanks a lot !

    Please increase priority of this request!

    At least a scale of 10 minutes.
    My projects runs typically over 3 to 14 days on 24 hour calender.
    Minutes counts!
