Quick Overview of the Work Calendar EditorTo edit your work calendar – Open your project – navigate to View->Work Cal – edit, add, remove the default working times to your custom working times – that is it, navigate back to whatever you were doing
Work Calendar Editor RequirementsUp until now Gantto has assumed that the working times are 8am-12pm, 1pm-5pm Monday to Friday. While this works for a number of customers, we have gotten numerous requests to allow more flexible working times. Some people like to work on weekends, some define the work day from Sunday to Thursday, some people just like to work a lot more than 40 hours a week. We set out to create a system for editing the work calendar which: – Defaults to the existing behavior (8am-12pm, 1pm-5pm, M-F) – Easy to create or edit, should take less than 60 seconds for most people – Is flexible enough to handle the customer calendar requests thus far – Is precise to 15 minute intervals
Work Calendar Editor How ToFor a quick example, lets assume you want to schedule a death march, 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. First, Open your project and navigate to View->Work Cal You should see the default work calendar: From here simply resize the working times to span the ranges you are looking for, lets assume we want to work from 10am to 11pm with a 1 hour video game break: That is it, the work calendar has now been updated, the project now assumes that you are working 7 days a week. So now a task dependent on one which finishes on Friday will start Saturday instead of Monday. Also tasks modeled as taking 70 hours of effort will now finish in 1 week instead of almost two.
