here is question form one of my Blog Readers: “I want assign a task to a particular resource on a Holiday. How can I do that. For eg: I have specified December 25 th as exception in my project calendar. And I have two resources Resource A and Resource B. I want to assign a task to Resource B on December 25. Is it possible ?”
I will show that with MS PROJECT 2013!
First I will create one Project:
Now I’m going to modify Standard Calendar, which I use for this Project! I will make an Exception for 25.12.
I’m going to add two Resources to my Project:
Now suppose that John will have to work during Holyday (e.g. 25.12.). How to do that. Well, piece of cake:
OK! Now I’m going to Assign John and Mary to One Task with 5 Days duration:
Now I’m going to check Task Usage View:
As you can see, John will work on the Task from Monday ‘till Friday (also at 25.12. – Thursday), and Mary Will work From Monday ‘till Monday next week, without 25.12.
Hope this helps.
