Create a work hours template (Project Service)

Applies to Project Service app versions 2.x and 1.x

Before you can create project schedules, you need to set up a project calendar that defines the number of working hours to accommodate per day in the schedule and any business closures. You do this with a work hours template, which contains details about work hours per day, days off, and any other business closures.

When you’re creating a project, you associate a work template to the project calendar to apply the schedule for the project.

There are two ways you can create a work hours template:

  • Create a work hours template based on a resource’s calendar.

  • Create a new work hours template.

To create a work hours template based on a resource’s calendar

  1. Go to Project Service > Resources.

  2. Select the resource you want to base your work hours on.

  3. Click Save Calendar As, enter a name for the work hours template, and then click Save.

  4. When you’re done changing options, click Save and Close.

  5. Click the Save button at the bottom right corner of the screen.

To create a new work hours template

  1. Go to Project Service > Work Hours Templates.

  2. Click New.

  3. Enter a name for the work hours template.

  4. Select a resource to base the work hours on, and then click Save.
