  • Hi Syed,

    Definitely! But it should be looked carefully case by case. For example the overtime work can be managed without calendar with the out of the box overtime field. then for the payments, I don't see the reason to apply a specific calendar since it should be a cost resource.

    Please give us more details so we can provide you a more specific answer.

    Hope this helps,

  • Hi Guillaume,

      Thanks for your reply; my situation is; company wants to manage contracts for vendors as well in EPM. What I plan to do is have vendors contract terms defined in a list with Payment, sick leave terms etc. 

       I would take actuals from Task update and develop a report. My concern is how can I use calendars for managing Contract dates and reporting time for resources.

       First Contract for vendors (Calander (may be 2-3 years contract) and resource contracts yearly. Resources are under different vendors.
