Calendars define when work does and does not happen. For a project plan to be accurate, it must take into account working and non-working time. For example:

  • Which days of the week are weekdays and which are weekends

  • How many hours a day work happens, and at what times

  • Holidays and other days no work is planned

  • Unexpected delays, such as when the weather is bad

Administrators define calendars, and project planners choose a calendar when creating work packages or adding work steps to work packages.

There are multiple calendars at different levels

Administrators can define multiple calendars at the tenant or company level.

Default calendars provide a starting point for projects and work packages

Administrators choose a default calendar at the tenant level.

  • When a new project is created, it includes a calendar based on the default tenant calendar.

  • When a new work package is created, it uses the default project calendar.

At both the tenant and project level, administrators can:

  • Make changes to the default calendar

  • Set a different calendar as the default

Any calendar can be used for work scheduling

When scheduling work, administrator can choose:

  • Any calendar at the tenant or project level

  • Different calendars for a work package and each of its work steps

Changing the calendar changes the project plan

Calendars are used to calculate the duration of work steps and work packages. In turn, those durations are used to calculate the project plan. When a calendar is changed, the duration of work steps or work packages that use it changes. In turn, that impacts the project plan.
