These numbers are the quotient of the actual values divided by the corresponding estimated values. Rejected expenses and hours are excluded from the corresponding totals.
Actual Total Hours represent the total number of hours users recorded in their time sheets against the project, whether on specific tasks or without specifying a task. Only time items with an “In progress”, “Submitted” or “Approved” status are taken into account. Rejected time isn’t.
Actual Project Hours represent the total number of hours users entered in their time sheets on the project but without specifying a task. Only time items with an “In progress”, “Submitted” or “Approved” status are taken into account. Rejected time isn’t.

Furthermore, a “Predefined % Done” can be associated to each “In Progress” status. The % Done can range anywhere from 0% to 100%, in 10% increments.
