Hi,

Today I will show you how to set different Work days during time period with Microsoft Project for the Web!

Here is Scenario. Until 10/01/2020 (October the 1st), work days are going to be from Monday to Friday. From 10/10/2020 they are going to be from Monday to Thursday!

First I will setup Calendar:

and then:

and:

Now, I will choose 10/01/2020, and I will set up work days like this:

OK! That’s it.  I will use this Resource as a Template for my Calendar Template:

Now, I will create brand new Project:

and I will create a Schedule:

Let me explain:

  • Task 1 has 5 days duration. I will start at Monday 9/21/2020 and it will finish at Friday 9/25/2020
  • Task 2 has 5 days duration. I will start at Monday 9/28/2020 and it will finish at Monday, 10/5/2020 since Friday 10/01/2020 is non working day
  • Task 3 has 5 days duration. I will start at Tuesday 10/6/2020 and it will finish at Tuesday 10/13/2020 (e.g. work days are: Tuesday 10/6, Wednesday 10/7, Thursday 10/8, Monday 10/12 and Tuesday 10/13 – those are 5 work days!)

Hope this helps.

Regards!
