Why do task duration and effort show as, for example, 2 days in the node but 480 minutes in the task info pane, and is that convertible?

Could this be related to the Task Info Pane displaying information of another topic than the one that you're viewing on your screen? Are you able to see 2 days in the node and 480 minutes in the Task Info pane, as they don't really seem related to each other?

No, it happens for almost any node. It must be the units that were entered at map creation. Some of the functionality is grayed out, so it seems that it may not be editable after the fact.

OK, if some functionality is greyed out on the Task Pane Tab you might need to select the right nodes first (make sure there is a selection box around the nodes that you would like to edit)

Hi All, 

This is as-designed behavior as individual Topic tasks duration can be set to  minutes, hours or days.. When Rolling up, we display the duration in minutes.

But the map topic will display the more readable format (e.g. days, hours, etc...).
