Working Calendar Management


Working calendars are linked to contracts and are used in day to day processing of work items to help determine precise due dates (for example when 'working hours' are involved, the precise working hours associated with the relevant calendar (e.g. 9am-5pm) are taken into account in the calculation. Similarly, non-working days are skipped when determining due dates.
This video gives you a quick overview of working calendars:
Working calendars can be accessed from the link in the toolbar. This will bring up the Calendars screen which will display a list of all system working calendars. Clicking on a particular calendar will open up its details on the right hand side:

Creating a Calendar

To create a calendar, click the '+' at the top of the page.
The following attributes can be set for a calendar:
A name for the calendar
Description for the calendar
Time zone
The Time zone for this working calendar
Standard list of time zones to select from.
Non-Working Days
A list of days throughout the year (e.g. national holidays) which are not working days.
These will not be considered when calculating working times
Start and Finishing Time
The starting and finishing times of the day during the work day
These times are used when calculating Due dates which reference working time.

Editing / Deleting a Calendar

To edit a working calendar simply select the calendar from the list, update detailed information as desired and hit ‘Save’.
To delete a working calendar simply select the calendar that is to be deleted from the list and hit ‘Delete’.
You can see what edits have been made to the calendar and when, as well as when the calendar was created, and even when a calendar was deleted by clicking on the Show Activity button.
You are also able to clone a calendar by clicking on the Clone button in the edit screen. This will clone all of the calendar's settings apart from its name. You are able to make changes to any of the settings once the calendar has been cloned.
