For additional information
about modifying calendars,
refer to the Help.

Use more than one calendar when your projects contain activities that can
occur on different schedules. For example, you can create one calendar
that specifies a normal Monday-through-Friday workweek and another
calendar that specifies continuous worktime (24 hours/day). If you define
multiple project calendars, you must assign each activity to the specific
calendar that indicates the worktime available for performing that activity.
The module schedules each activity only during the worktimes of the
calendar to which it is assigned.

A calendar consists of a
standard workweek and a
list of exceptions.

You can also create multiple calendars to control the times when work is
performed by resources throughout your organization. You can then
associate different holidays/exceptions from the global calendar for each
work cycle to indicate individual resource availability.

Define the workhours for each day in the regular workweek. Use the
Calendar dialog box to view and edit a global, project, or resource

Modify calendars Choose Enterprise, Calendars; choose the calendar
type (Global, Resource, or Project), select the calendar you want to
modify, then click Modify.

To base a resource or project calendar on another calendar,
select a new global calendar in the Inherit Holidays and
Exceptions from Global Calendar field.

Choose the month you want to modify by clicking the appropriate arrow
button next to the month-year title. Modify the year by clicking the month/
year title, and clicking the appropriate arrow button. To change the
number of hours in a specific workday, click the date you want to change.

Work hours defined with decimal values other than .0 or .5 will
round up or down to .0 or .5.

If the date’s display color changes to white, the number of

Each calendar’s work/nonworktime is based on its regular workweek. The
changes you make to the regular workweek are reflected in the global,
resource, or project calendar dialog box. The calendar dialog box shows
normal/standard, nonworktime, and exceptions in the colors indicated in
the legend.

Apply exceptions directly in the calendar dialog box. To apply the same
change to all instances of a specific weekday in the displayed month, click
