Traditionally in many countries the “standard” work week is made up of 40 hours distributed over 5 days (Monday through Friday, 8AM-noon, and 1PM-5PM). Because of this, Gantto defaults to a 5 day, 40 hour per week schedule. In reality, however, every project is different and this work calendar may not be the most appropriate. Gantto allows you to modify the work calendar for each of your projects through the Work Calendar interface.
