Again, I have a request (question) from one of my Blog readers: !
Your tutorials are very helpful – thank you! I was wondering if it is possible to make a particular task not allowed on a particular day? For example, as a rule we do not deploy any projects on a Friday, therefore the task for ‘go live’ would need to automatically be moved to the next working day if it falls on a Friday. This is only valid for that one task and not all of the others therefore changing the calendar for the whole project would not work. Do you know if this is possible?
I’ll show you how to do it in MS PROJECT PRO 2013.
First of all I am going to create a brand new Calendar, called ”No Friday”:
OK! I’m going to Create two Tasks:
As you can see, both of them are going to be finished at Friday!
I’ll add Two Resources, and assign them to Tasks:
Now suppose that, for some reason, I do not want to perform any Action on Task 1 at Friday. I will assign No Friday Calendar to that task:
and I will get:
as you can see, Task 1 will start on Monday, but it will be Finished at next Monday, because there will be no work performed on Friday.
If you put you cursor on Info column, you will get:
Remember that Task Calendar has the highest Priority!
