Time off for specific Resources in Microsoft Project for the Web


I’m going to show you how to setup, for example, Vacation for specific Resource, using Microsoft Project for the Web.

Let’s say that Ellen will take day off at 01/01/2021, but everyone else will work at that Day.

To set Day off for Ellen, I should follow this steps:

So I will have:


Now I will assign John to his Task, and Ellen to her Task in My Project:


As you can see, john and Mary are going to work on the Task which has 5 days Duration, from 12/28/29 to 01/01/2021, but John has 40 hours effort, and Ellen has 32 hours effort since she will not work at 01/01/2021.

This is my last post for this very odd year.

I wish you a very happy New Year, and all the best to you and your families.
