How to change the the time shifts for only one day in Project 2010 calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I know how to change the time shifts for every Monday in a Project  2010 calendar, but how can we do that for only one day : for example January 2nd will start at 10:00 instead of 8:00.

    Thanks

  • No, I don't think the Move Project command is what the OP was searching for.  He/she needed to make a single day start at 10:00 am instead of the usual 8:00 am start time.  Setting an exception is the correct method.

  • I think I got the solution: don't start from the "Work Weeks" Tab. Instead start from the "Exceptions" tab.

    Type "Headache" for example on a specific day, click Details, select "Working times" option. Here change the time. Don't set any recurrence :-)

    Thanks

  • Hi there--

    You can make a change in Cal using the Change Work time button in project Tab:
    Select the Day > Work Weeks Tab & Click on Details

    Select the Specific day & option "Set day to specific Working time" & change the time as required.

    Does that help?

  • Hi Amit,

    May be my question was not well formulated. With the procedure you are using, every Monday will start at 10:00.

    I just want to say that next Monday I will be late because I will have a headache (I will celebrate a birthday on Sunday). I don't have a headache every Monday!

    Thanks for your help

  • Hi there--

    While you select a specific week , You can select the specifc day of the week & modify the time. As far as I know, it won't set the same for every monday.

    Please try & let us know.

    Thanks,

  • WLID1966 that's the approach to mark exceptions. :)

  • Do not go about with any round about approach. If it is a simple one just use Move Project functionality.

    Move project is under Schedule group and project tab. And check the change highlighting (tip - on milestones and important dates to be shorter) and also check on the constraints.
