Base calendars

A base calendar is used as a template that the project calendar, resource calendars, or task calendars are based on. It defines the standard working and nonworking times for the project. It specifies the work hours for each workday, the workdays for each week, and any exceptions, such as holidays. You can select a base calendar to use as the project calendar or as the basis for a resource calendar. You can also apply a base calendar to specific tasks.

RiskyProject has five default base calendars:

  • Standard: The Standard base calendar reflects a traditional work schedule: Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., with an hour off for break.
  • 24 Hours: The 24 Hours base calendar reflects a schedule with no nonworking time. The 24 Hours calendar can be used to schedule resources and tasks for different shifts around the clock, or to schedule equipment resources continuously.
  • Night Shift: The Night Shift base calendar reflects a graveyard shift schedule of Monday night through Saturday morning, 11:00 P.M. to 8:00 A.M., with an hour off for break.
  • Morning Off: The Morning Off base calendar reflects a schedule Monday through Friday, 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M., without breaks.
  • Afternoon Off: The Afternoon Off base calendar reflects a schedule Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 12:00 P.M., without breaks.

You can also create your own base calendar, which is useful if you have alternative schedules for multiple resources. For example, you might have resources working part-time, 12-hour shifts, or on weekends.
