Creating and Assigning a Project Calendar
In creating a Project Schedule from scratch, one of the first things that you should always do is to create a Project calendar. A project calendar allows you to account for known, common periods of non-working time, such as a corporate holiday calendar. It doesn’t account for individual sick time or scheduled time out of office.
The greatest advantage is that it allows you to schedule common “out of office” time, knowing that, as you build your schedule, the schedule takes those day’s into account – Your schedule is always up-to-date.
