Future scheduled hours.
When viewing a Project's booking, adjacent to "Sheduled hours" and "Actual" there should also be a sum of hours "Scheduled from today" ("Future scheduled hours").
The future is actually "all that matters" and help us not to navigate with the rear window. This allows us to have intelligent discussions with the project teams if there are enough hours planned in the future to complete the project, or if the planning is unrealistic, thus greatly improving the accuracy of the planning. For this to work, the information needs to be available and can't be hidden or hard-to-access.
Thanks for confirming. Yes we are going to be adding this as part of the new reports.
We will introduce metrics like
* All Time
* To Date
for both scheduled and reported time.
The reports API won't have this info on release but something that will come at a later date.

Yes, exactly, I'm referrinhg to the data displayed at the top of th single project scheduler page, where it's today visible the total number of hours planned. Good to see what's in the future there (as the future is what we can influence by modifying the planning) - hence answering questions like "is it really enough with 400 hours to finish this project" - it gives a more live and operational dialogue with project managers.

Is it possible to fetch this data via the API interface ?
This will be a feature in the new reports, but are you referring to the data displayed at the top of the single project scheduler page? where we show budget info and spend etc?
