- [Bonnie] Hi, I'm Bonnie Biafore.…This week, we'll see how to display…a nonstandard calendar's working and non-working times…in the timescale.…Here I have a software development project…and I'm looking at it using the Gantt Chart view.…Right now this project is running on your typical calendar.…Monday through Friday workdays…and Saturdays and Sundays off.…But let's say I want to run this project…on a very different schedule.…So on the Project tab, click Project Information.…
Then, in the Calendar box, I'm going to click the down arrow…and I'm going to choose a custom calendar that I've built.…Eight on, six off, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m.…This represents eight working days in a row,…six days off, and then the work hours are from…eight to seven with an hour for lunch.…I'm going to click OK to make this my project calendar.…Well that's great.…Now the schedule is using that calendar,…but take a look at the timescale on the right side…of the window.…
It's still showing Monday through Friday as work days…because they're white cells,…
