Change a Project Calendar RRS feed

  • Question

  • Running Project 2010, latest SP. Can a user with just Project Manager permissions modify the standard calendar for just their specific project? Help seems to indicate "Yes", but can't seem to edit the Exception area.

  • The PM cannot edit the enterprise project calendar for an individual project and save the changes. When they try to edit the enterprise calendar they get a message stating changes will not be saved.

    Given sufficient permissions you could go through PWA and change an enterprise calendar, but the change will impact all of the projects using that calendar. You can have multiple enterprise calendars and the PM can choose from a list enterprise calendars for the project base calendar.   

    You may want to look into setting the option to allow local calendars. The PM can change the local base calendar. To allow local base calendars go PWA>Server Settings>Operational Policies>Additional Settings.

    Hope that helps.
