Microsoft Project is a scheduling tool, and the schedule of every project is based on one or more calendars. In this high-energy webinar, Dale Howard will discuss the following:
• Configuring the Standard calendar in your Microsoft Project schedule
• Creating new calendars
• Setting the working schedule for each calendar where appropriate
• Specifying the Project calendar and the Nonworking Time calendar
• Specifying PTO on Resource calendars
• Using a Task calendar to override the project schedule
• Understanding how calendars impact the Duration, Start, and Finish of every task
Although the final topic seems to be very simple and straight forward, Dale guarantees that this topic will surprise you. In fact, regarding the final topic, Dale says, “Always trust the schedule in Microsoft Project. And when the schedule of a task does not seem to make sense, the underlying cause is almost always a calendar.”
