Suppose that you are working on the Project! And suppose that you have one week Vacation for whole company resources, each and every Year. How to make it in MS PROJECT 2013.
First I’ll create a Project With one Task and Two Resources:
As you can see, Project will start at Monday, 11.11.2013, and will finish at Friday 15.11.2013
Now suppose, that The whole Company is going to Vacation, at that week, every year. You do not want to create exception each and every year. So I’m going to try to make this week as recurring exception:
Finally I’ll get:
OOOOPS! That was not what I wanted. Why? The reason is simple! You can set recurring exception, only for one day at the time. So, what I have to do is this:
and I have to repeat for each and every day, for example for Second Day of Vacation:
When I enter five days I’ll have:
Lt’s look at the Gantt Chart:
Everything is perfect now.
So, to conclude, you cannot enter, for example, recurring week, as an exception in Calendar. Is it annoying? Yes it is! But you cannot avoid that!
