In Enterprise environment, it is very important to create ENTERPRISE CALENDARS in MS PROJECT SERVER 2010! You should create working and non working hours, holidays, exceptions etc.
To do that, I will open PWA, and I will get:
and I will get:
For my example I will use Standard calendar, but I can also create new calendar (or calendars). I will click on Standard Calendar and choose Edit Calendar options. After that MS PROJECT PROFESSIONAL 2010 is opened:
First I will set up working hours:
Now, I am going to set up holidays:
I will repeat this procedure for each and every exception. Finally I will get:
If New year will be at Sunday (01.01.2017), and you have an extra day at Monday 02.01.2012, you must add these day in exceptions manually!
After you finish with creating enterprise calendar, leave MS PROJECT PROFESSIONAL 2010.
One important thing. I wrote many times that working days, and daily schedule must be aligned!
For example, daily schedule is here:
If you change your working Calendars like, for example, this:
it means that working time will be only four hours per day. Now you should change the daily schedule like this:
Now what?! If you change working hours as I did, and you want to reflect your Enterprise project you should OPEN EVERY ENTERPRISE PROJECT with MS PROJECT PROFESSIONAL 2010, change daily schedule, as it it showed on the Picture above, and Save the Enterprise Project again. Hard work, isn’t it? Of course it is.
ADVICE! Make your daily schedule and Enterprise calendars BEFORE you start with your Projects! From my point of view, this is Planning phase for implementing MS PROJECT SERVER 2010 in your organization!
