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 I will create Generic Resource called: Generic Resource from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM
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.
