When the Hours field is disabled, you are allocating hours of work on the task in “Custom Hours” mode. Just above the task assignment grid, you will notice 2 radio buttons.

The impacts are as follows: The statistics for both the source and destination projects will be recomputed. The task’s History Trail will be moved along with the task.

In most projects, certain tasks cannot begin unless another is completed. This can be difficult to manage when the project is complex and contains a high number of tasks that depend on the successful completion of others. This is where task dependencies come in.
