  • Hi Amit,

    Actually the procedure is the following in case you do need a specific calendar per template:

    1. create your enterprise calendars (procedure)
    2. create a project template per calendar associating the calendar to the template (procedure)
    3. create an EPT for each template, associating the template to the EPT (procedure)

    Doing this, you will have the possibility to choose your EPT so your calendar while creating projects in PWA Project Center.


    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Amit,

    Unfortunately, once the project is created, you cannot change the project calender using PWA only, you need to go through MS Project. 

    Indeed the calendar is attached to the project template which is attached to the project type (EPT). Creating the new project, the user chooses the project type, thus the template, thus the project calendar.

    This is why it is always recommended that at least a few super users have MS Project installed in order to perform some operations which cannot be done in PWA.


    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

    If you share the steps for creating the EPTs for different calendars could be helpful.
