Calculating the task priority
Task Priority is a feature of Epicflow that guides your team to work faster and smarter across multiple projects by suggesting the best possible combinations of tasks fulfillment order.
Tasks priorities are visualized by means of numbers from zero to one hundred and more. The following numbers will help you instantly get information which tasks are badly in need of closer attention.
0 – 50 indicate that you’ll most likely finish the task on time according to your plan
80 implies that your task still has a 20% buffer, so you’ll most likely make to the deadline
100 shows that you will finish the task on time, but you don’t have a buffer for it, so on time delivery is possible only in case you don’t depart from the plan
101 means there’s one day delay, so you won’t be able to finish the task on time even if you follow the plan
> 100 will warn you for how many days your task gets delayed. Each additional point indicates a day in task delay.
Difference between Spent, Remaining, Total
Each task is characterized by estimation of a time which is remaining for its fulfillment, already spent and total sum of such. It’s an essential part of the system and update of those values helps with project’s flow, impediments identification and priorities order.
Remaining is the number of man hours left to accomplish the task. You can modify this number, but please note that it will change the number of Spent man hours or Total.
Spent is the number of man hours that a resource has already burned to accomplish the task. If you increase the number of spent hours, Remaining hours will get reduced accordingly.
Total is the sum of Remaining and Spent man hours.
