Action Name: Set effort to match size
#factor = getProject().getFloatProperty( "CurrentProductivity_pointsPerIdealPersonDay"),
#factor = (#factor < 0.01) ? 1.0 : #factor,
#size = getSize(),
Applicable to: Task
UI Action: True
Note that the operation uses a factor to scale the mapping between size points and effort. If this factor is 1.0 the mapping is 8 hours effort (480 minutes) per size point.
Perhaps - like it's inverse operation, this will one day appear in the preconfigured operations of the Simple Process. Note that is very similar to the Set estimates action which is delivered in this process. However that operation is designed to take Size as a parameter (usually during the instantiation of a pattern) and so it is not suitable to make that one into a UI Action for operating directly on existing tasks.
