How to permanently change Working time in MS PROJECT 2019?

Hello,

recently I was in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, teaching MS PROJECT 2019. And one of the first questions was: “how to change working time – permanently for all Projects?” I will show you how to do it with MS PROJECT 2019! In Saudi Arabia work week is from Sunday to Thursday, and weekend days are Friday and Saturday.

To make that permanently for all Projects, I should follow those steps.

First I will change those working times like this:

Now, if I have, for example Task which will be five days long:

you can see that Sunday is working day, but Friday and Saturday are not.

BUT! If I close my project now, and create a new one, I will have to repeat this process all over again. Because I want to make this working and non working days as default, I will change my global template like this:

and:

and:

and finally:

The result will be that every time you open new Project you will have those working and non working days as default in your Standard Calendar.

If you don’t like it this way, you can just create new Calendar (Let’s call it Saudi calendar), and then make all those adjustments, like I did in Standard calendar. After you do it, just copy This new, Saudi calendar to global template, and that’s it. But keep in mind that if you want to use that calendar in your Project you should choose it:

So, instead of Standard calendar, use Saudi calendar (when you create it). It will be available in every new Project, because it is been saved in global template.

Regards!
