Set Observed Holidays in a Schedule

OBJECTIVE

To set Observed Holidays (Non-Workdays) in a Project Schedule.

BACKGROUND

ConstructionOnline’s Scheduling automatically calculates and shifts project tasks to account for observed holidays. For example, if a task takes two days to complete, but a holiday occurs between the start and end dates, the schedule will account for the holiday and adjust the task start and end dates accordingly.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • User must have correct permissions to create or edit schedules
  • A Project Schedule must exist to set observed holidays
  • Available Holidays are based on the selected Country in the Schedule Settings.
  • The default holiday calendar is the calendar for the country set on the Company administrator’s settings page.
  • Observed holidays will apply on a per-schedule basis, meaning holidays should be set for each project
