today I will show you how to use exceptions in working times using MS PROJECT 2019!
Let’s say that are working hours are 8 hors per day (08:00 to 12:00, and 13:00 to 17:00) from Monday 03.02.2020 to Friday 07.02.2020, and 4 hours per day from Monday 10.02.2020 to Friday 14.02.2020. To set this up, follow next steps:
Now I will create two Tasks in My Project:
as you can see, Task 2 will start at Monday 10.02.2020, but will finish at Wednesday 19.02.2020. To explain this I will assign John as Resource to both Tasks:
OK! Task 2 has Duration = 5 days. 1 day is 8 hours:
Since 1 day is 8 hours, 5 days is 40 hours. But at week from 10.02 working time is 4 hours per day, so john is going to work only 20 hours this week (from Monday to Friday), and remining work is 20 hours. But, at next week, from 17.02.2020. working time is again 8 hours per day, so John will work 8 hours at Monday and Tuesday (17. and 18.02.2020) and this is 16 hours. Remaining 4 hours John will work at Wednesday!
To conclude. Be aware that when you make working hours less than it is expected to be worked per day, Finish date will be postponed!
