How do I use a local base calendar in Project 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • For a single project, I would like to specify that a specific day that is normally a working day (as defined by the Standard Calendar) is now a non-working day for all resources on the project.  I've tried using a local base calendar by opening the project in Project Pro 2010, going to the Project tab | Change Working Time | Create New Calendar | From a copy of the Standard Calendar | Adding the exception to the new Calendar | clicking Ok to close the Change Working Time dialog.  The problem is that when I go back into the Change Working Time dialog the original Calendar is selected not the new one.

    I'm hoping to not have to edit the calendar for each of the 20 resources on the project to accomplish this.

    Am I going about this wrong?

    Thanks for your time.

    I am saddened to report to you that you CANNOT change the Base Calendar value for the resources in your project.  This is because the Project Server administrator is the only person who can modify the Base Calendar value for every enterprise resource.  Your best option would be to apply the custom calendar as a Task calendar on every task that needs the alternate working schedule, and to select the "Scheduling ignores resource calendars" option when you specify the Task calendar.  Hope this helps.

  • Hello Bill,

    Could you please check the setting from PWA>>Additional Server settings.

    Verify the status of "Alllow projects to use local base calendars"

     

    Thanks,
