My first article for MPUG was published today: How to Add Your Organization’s Holiday Schedule to MS Project.
As I recently pointed out to another project manager, there aren’t four work weeks in either November or December. Fortunately, if you’re using Microsoft Project, you can define non-working days in order to prevent the embarrassment of a deliverable coming due on Thanksgiving Day. I also show how to create alternate calendars for team members in other countries or special events, like cutovers, and apply them to Resources and Tasks.
As always, thanks for taking the time to read my stuff.
