    I have a construction schedule with my resources working 7 days a week. Is there a way to create a highlight option for all tasks that take place on a Saturday and/or Sunday?

    Thanks in advance!


    Fastest way to do it, I guess, would be as follows:
    Change “Calendar” to Standard and choose a dark nonworking time color, then check the Gantt graph…
    See: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/project-help/timescale-dialog-box-non-working-time-tab-HP001226008.aspx


    There is no non-working time. My subcontractors are all working 7 days a week….


    If you have already modified and used the Standard base calendar as the project calendar, then you can create another calendar, for example, Standard_with_NonWorking and use it to draw nonworking times in the Gantt as explained above.

    Hey Nathan,
    That’s a good one! Try this article:
    How to Highlight Tasks Occurring on the Weekend


    Thanks Rich! I’ll definitely be using that formula for a flag. One thing I noticed was that it only flags tasks which start and/or finish on the weekend. So for a task which starts on Thursday and runs to the following Tuesday, it would go unmarked.

    Any ideas on how to capture those? Thanks again for all the help!
