    Lets say you have a task of paint walls.

    On a schedule that I didn’t use any resources, I defined the \”size\” of this task by simply assigning it a duration. And that’s it.

    But on a schedule that I use resources, how can I do that?

    If I assign work as 10 hours, does it mean it takes 10 hours to complete this task by…what? 1 person? In other words, how do you define the size of a task? Or, do you just assign say 3 people to the task and its work and duration will be calculated automatically? So you never assign the size of the task yourself but it is calculated?
