Join Bonnie Biafore for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting up calendars, part of Microsoft Project 2010 Essential Training.
- The days and times that people work…affect when tasks can start and how long they take.…Some people work full time, while others work part time…or work different hours of each work day.…A project calendar defines the working…and nonworking time for your entire project.…You can also set up additional calendars…to define other work schedules,…for part-time workers, for example.…To set up your working time, head to the Project tab…and then choose Change Working Time.…
That opens up the Change Working Time dialogue box.…Up at the top in the For calendar box,…it says Standard, and behind it…in parentheses Project (Calendar).…That's telling me that this project is using…the standard calendar that comes with Project,…and it's assigned as the calendar for this entire project.…Below that, in the Calendar box,…you can have a date selected, and when you look…to the right you'll see the Working times for that date.…
The standard calendar is set up for 8 to 5…with an hour for lunch.…Down below, I'm gonna click the Work Weeks tab…
