The end date in jeopardy alerts use the project velocity along with the hours record on the previous business day to determine how many days ahead or behind the project is. Is the number of days behind is greater than the cutoff an alert will be generated.
- Hours recorded to previous business day: 90,000
- Hours projected to previous business day: 95,000
- Hours recorded on previous business day: 1,600
Days Behind = (90,000 - 95,000) / 1,600 = -3.125 days behind
In the above example if the cut off is 1, 2 or 3 days the alerts will generate. Any number greater than 4 will not cause the alert to generate.
