Each project can have its own work schedule. Project Insight's intelligent scheduling then uses this project work schedule to schedule tasks.
Edit a Project Work Schedule
Project Managers, Project Schedulers and PMO Managers can edit the Project Work Schedule.
- Edit icon
- Project Options
- Project Work Schedule tab
A project work schedule inherits its settings from a system-wide work schedule.
For more information, see changing the Default Work Schedule.
Changing the Default Project Work Schedule
Select the dropdown "Project Default Work Schedule Inherits From:"
Select any of the Multiple System-Wide Work Schedules your project follows.
Adjusting Specific Project Work Schedules
Each project work schedule will be based on the project schedule selected (see above). You can add or change a project schedule to reflect this project's individual schedule.
In the Project Work Schedule tab, use the View/Edit Project Work Schedule button to make any individual changes to this project's schedule:
You can also shortcut there with the Edit icon:
You can also change specific task work schedules to get even more specific.
Inherited non-working days for a Project Schedule
Since you are looking at the specific project's schedule, only this project's specific non-workdays appear on the Holidays, Non-work Days and Special Days tab.
To see the non-working days that came from the default calendar associated with this project, click on the Inherited Days tab.
Navigate through this display the same way by clicking on Previous Year, Next Year or All text.
How Users' Schedules affect Project Schedules
Each time a PM assigns a resource to a project, there is a setting for that resource to control the work schedule to use (see Project Resource View).
Use the Project Default Work Schedule? Then PI uses the project specific work schedule (aka this article's stuff). This is the default choice.
If you use the Resource's Work Schedule? Then you're on your own, friend. Just kidding: check out the User Work Schedule article.
Effects of Changing a Project Work Schedule
If you change a projects work schedule, the schedule will be updated automatically for any resources set to use the Project Default work schedule as soon as you save the changes.
