You want to use a calendar in your project. Many users in your project work different shifts. You want to ensure the project is able to accommodate the part-time schedules for the contractors working on the project. What should you do?
- Use the Standard base calendar.
- Use the 24-Hour base calendar.
- Use the Night Shift base calendar.
- Create a custom base calendar for the project.
D. Create a custom base calendar for the project.
In this scenario, you should create a custom base calendar for the project. A custom base calendar allows you to customize the working days and hours. A base calendar is used across the project as a template for the resource, task and project calendars. To change the calendar for a project, click Tools and click Change Working Time. You can select the calendar you want to use in the For calendar drop-down list at the top, or you can click the Create New Calendar button to create a custom calendar.
The Standard base calendar is configured with the default work schedule, which is Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The 24-Hour base calendar is configured to allow project tasks to be completed anytime, including nights and weekends.
The Night Shift calendar is configured to allow project tasks to be completed on Monday through Saturday only in the evenings. The times generally start at 11 p.m. and end at 8 a.m.
