Part II: Developing a Timeline > Defining When Project Can Schedule Tasks

Hour 5. Defining When Project Can Schedule Tasks

In Hour 4, "Starting the Scheduling Process," you began learning the instructions you can give Project to impose terms and conditions on how it calculates the schedule for you. You saw how to set the project start or finish date, and how to control certain default settings, such as start and finish times for tasks, how much work a day or week contains, and what labels to use for units of time. You were also introduced to entering estimates of task duration for both regular working hours and for continuous or elapsed time.

In this hour, you continue to look at the underpinnings of scheduling in Project. Specifically you will examine the following:

  • Creating calendars for the project

  • Identifying which days work can be scheduled, and which days are nonworking

  • Setting specific hours when work can be scheduled

  • Creating a calendar for individual tasks

  • Sharing calendars with other Project files
