Chapter 6. Entering Resources > Working with Resource Calendars

Working with Resource Calendars

Calendars define the days and times that a resource will be scheduled to work on tasks. If a date in a resource's calendar is marked as a nonworking time, Project will not schedule work on that day. It will instead take the work that would have fallen on that day and move it to the next working day on the resource's calendar. Likewise, calendars define the time spans within a day that are available for work. If a resource's calendar says that her working day starts at 8 a.m., the resource will be assigned to a task starting at 8 a.m., even if that task is scheduled to start at 6 a.m. This is because the resource's calendar defined the hours between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. as nonworking time.

Set a Date as Nonworking Time

Double-click on the resource for which you want to edit the working time.

Select the Working Time tab.

Select the date you want to make nonworking time.

Select the Nonworking Time radio button to make the selected day(s) nonworking time.

Dates that are nonworking time will be shaded gray, with their dates in bold and underlined.

Click OK.
