Calculating Duration Based on Resource Availability

How can I get MindManager to calculate the duration based on a Resource's availability?

Here's the scenario
I have a task that takes an FTE 24 hours to complete (Effort?)
I have a resource that is available on 70% of the time
I need my task duration to reflect that it will take my 70% resource longer to complete the task than a FTE. 

For this example, I'd want MindManager to change the duration to 30 hours (i.e. 3.75 days)

Is this possible

Hi Lagomorph,
unfortunately it is not possible with the actual version (MindManager 2020), that the duration is adapted to the resource workload automatically. The duration is used to calculate the effort (effort = duration * number of assigned resources). The task effort can be edited for each resource and MindManager can highlight the over-utilization of the resource, so that the duration can be adapted.
