Display task duration in format it was entered rather than workdays

So I've just dived right in and adopted MindManager for my new project in Rwanda, and it's great but there will be quite a few things that I need help with.

For today: I'm entering task duration information in weeks or months, and I'd like the task info to display exactly as I enter it. However instead it always converts to work days, forcing the reader to make their own back calcuation. Is there any way to get the task info displayed as I entered it?

Thanks,
Jos.

Hi Jos

Couldn't replicate this until I hit the Roll Up Task Info button. Then everything changed to workdays in the topic task info boxes.  The Task Info pane sticks to displaying the original duration units.

A helpful improvement might be to force the map to use one unit for all topics but not only workdays.  Its going to be difficult to check the adding up otherwise.

In the meantime you could add a floating topic with a workdays to weeks and months table. Insert a spreadsheet from the Advanced ribbon.
