Create an enterprise calendar

By default Microsoft Project Server uses a standard enterprise calendar for scheduling. Some organizations may use multiple calendars. For example, if some of your organization's employees work in another country, those workers will likely observe different holidays and so they will need a different enterprise calendar for scheduling project work. You can create a new, blank enterprise calendar by using Microsoft Project Web App and Microsoft Project Professional.

Note: You must have administrator permissions in order to create or edit enterprise calendars.

  1. On the Quick Launch, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, click Enterprise Calendars.

  3. On the Enterprise Calendars page, click New Calendar.

  4. In the Windows Security dialog box, type your user name and password to connect to Project Server through Project Professional, and then click OK.

    Note: If you are using Integrated Windows authentication and your Internet Explorer settings are set to automatically log you on, or if Project Professional is already connected to the server that is using the correct profile, then you will not be prompted for credentials.

    Project Professional opens and displays the Change Working Time dialog box.

  5. Type a name for the new calendar in the For calendar box.

  6. Use the calendar, along with the Exceptions and Work Weeks tabs, to modify the working and nonworking times for your organization. For more information, see Modify working and nonworking times.

  7. Click OK in the Change Working Time dialog box to save the new calendar in Project Server.

  8. Close Project Professional.
