Chapter 3. Setting Up a Project Document > Defining a Calendar of Working Time

Defining a Calendar of Working Time

Microsoft Project uses a calendar, called the base calendar, to define the default working and nonworking days used for scheduling tasks in projects. Three base calendars are built in to Microsoft Project:

  • Standard— The 5-day, 40-hour week, with work from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. that’s standard in the United States.

  • Hour— A round-the-clock operation from 12:00 a.m. to 12:00 a.m.

  • Night Shift— An example of a calendar for those whose work shift starts toward the end of one day and ends in the morning of the next day.
