Lesson 1.9. Selecting the Project Calendar

Figure 1-9. The Project Information dialog box.


The Project Calendar is a schedule of working hours for all the tasks and resources in your project. The default Standard calendar schedules a work week from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday, but there are two other calendars you can choose from if your project doesn't fit this schedule.

This lesson will show you how to choose a calendar that's right for your project.

  1. If necessary, select Project The Project Information dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 1-9.

    There are three types of calendars you can choose from:

    • Standard: Standard work day and work week of Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., with a 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. lunch break. The Standard option is the default option, and the most common calendar option.

    • 24 Hours: Working time is scheduled nonstop from Sunday through Saturday, 12:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

    • Night Shift: Working time is scheduled Monday night through Saturday morning, 11:00 p.m. to 8:00 a.m., with 3:00 a.m. to 4:00 a.m. for a nonworking lunch break.

    Now, select the calendar that best matches a typical work schedule for the project.

  2. Click the Calendar list arrow and select the calendar you want to use. Click OK.


    Tip: Your Project Calendar should reflect typical working time for the project. You can make changes to calendars for specific resources and tasks as necessary.

Once you choose the calendar, you can further modify it to fit your needs. Go on to the next lesson to learn how.
