Some dates are shown colored (by default gray) on the schedule. these are period types that can be worked or not worked.
A Calendar is an assembly of different period types.
You can define several calendars:
- Daily calendars specifically indicate non worked days (possibly weekends and rest days),
- Hourly calendars specifically indicate time periods not worked (in 5 minute slices).
All the calendars can be combined cyclically or not thanks to the hourly or daily templates.
Each event represents the hourly and daily calendar of one of the resources it possesses.
To configure calendars you must define and assign several types of VISUAL PLANNING entities, in the following order:
Calendars are useful at several levels:
Calendars initially appear as a visual indication. They are visible via the color range on the view to which they apply.
Calendars apply to events.
When an event’s type is “Worked”, its behavior corresponds to the calendar of one of its resources.
Example: Impossible to position a task on a Sunday, if:
task events are worked,
the calendar is not worked on a Sunday.
In addition, its duration does not take account of the non worked periods that it includes.
