Article: Standard work hours and holidays
Use the Workdays section to set the normal work hours for this Project:
The shaded area represents the hours of work. Simply drag your mouse over the white cells to include them in your normal work hours or over a shaded area to remove those cells from your normal work hours.
On Hours - These are hours that are included in your regular daily work schedule.
Off Hours - These are hours that are not included in your regular daily work schedule.
The default Schedule is from 8 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday.
To return the Workdays to the default schedule, click the Reset button.
Viewpath allows users on the Team or Professional Editions to designate Holidays (non-work days) on a project-by-project basis. To add a holiday to the Workdays schedule:
- Click on the "Edit" menu and choose "Add Holiday" (or click on the icon in the row of icons).
- Select a date on the calendar.
The Holiday will be listed on the left side of the page. Simply click on the icon to remove it.
Note: Viewpath includes the concept of "Elapsed Days" in the Duration column of the Tasks list that allows you to assign a task on a weekend, holiday or after normal business hours. For example, if you have a task that must be completed on a weekend (or Holiday), set the duration to "1 eday" then change the Start Date to the appropriate Saturday or Sunday (or Holiday). Similarly, if a task exceeds the normal work hours for a given day but it must be completed on that day, set the value with "ehrs" (e.g. "12 ehrs") and the task will not automatically spill over to the following workday.
