Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting the Calendar Options

Setting the Calendar Options

The top two sets of options on the Calendar tab set the day on which weeks start, the month on which years start, and the default starting and ending times for tasks. The lower portion of this dialog can be a bit confusing. One way to lessen this confusion is to think of this last section as dealing more with conversions rather than calendars because it's really defining how Project will convert work or duration entries you make.

For example, the default settings are 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week, and 20 days per month. This means that if you enter a duration of one week, Project will “know” that you are really saying 40 hours. Likewise, if you enter a duration of one month, Project will know that this means 20 days, and that those days are 8 hours long.
