From the sidebar
When you click on a staff member or on a role in the schedule, you will see in a bar showing how many hours per week a resource is allocated for the duration of the segment. It does this by averaging out the number of hours required with the days of effort.
Click on either the bar or the circle to fine-tune the hours.
In the sidebar, you can use the slider to adjust the number of hours required for the duration of the segment. You can only drag the slider to 125%. Once you reach 105% the slider will change to red to indicate the resource is overallocated.
Synergy will also check the rate at which this staff member costs and calculates the hours nominated, you will see the changes in the widget when you click out of the sidebar.
Note: The changes you make here will not be seen in the fee or in the budget if you are in delivery mode.
