I have a very good question from one of my Blog Readers:
How does one fix different holidays for persons on the same activity? That is if X and Y are working on the same Project and Task and while X has weekly off on Sat and Sun, Y has weekly off on Sun only. So how do I fix the working time??”
I will show you how to do this using example above, with MS PROJECT 2016!
First I’m going to Create a brand new Project with one Task, 7 days duration:
Now I will create two Resources, X, and Y:
By default, both Resources will work from Monday to Friday, and they are not supposed to work on Saturday, and Sunday. Now I will enable resource Y to work on Saturday:
Now I will assign both, X, and Y to the Task:
As you can see, Duration is now 8 days, because Resource Y is going to work at Saturday. I will show you Task Usage View now:
So, both resources will fork 56 hours (7 Days * 8 hours per day = 56 hours). but, Resource X will work from Monday to Friday, and then next Monday and Tuesday. Resource Y will work from Monday to Saturday, and then next Monday!
So it is easy, isn’t it.
