  • Hi Anna,

    In addition to the calendar, you have to set the start date AND time in the project information dialog box from the project tab of the ribbon.

    If you don't see the time but just the date, go to the file menu, then options and configure the date display with date and time.


    Hope this helps,

  • So except the enterprise calendar, project manager still need to set the project start date and time. Is it right?

  • Indeed this is right. Even though the project start date (and time) might have been defined in the project template associated with the Enterprise Project Type (EPT) chosen by the project manager, setting a correct start date is one of fhe first thing to do just after the projeft being initiated.

    Hope this helps,

  • So enterprise calendar just records the holiday while project manager need set the start time again. It is really not convenient. Again, great thanks for your help!

  • Hi Anna,

    Setting the start date and time is important because of the option which makes newly created tasks starting either on the project start date or on the current date. Thus evenif your project calendar states that the working day starts at 8am, if the project start date/time is at 9am, all newly created tasks will start at 9pm which might cause inconsistencies in your project plan.

    Note that defining the project start date in the project template help!


    Hope this helps,
