    Hours in a day

    I am asking this for someone else, so I hope I get it right. Is it possible to assign some work on the calendar to last 24 hours, and another task to be (2)10 hour days? I was reading some posts and it sounds to me like the different resources should each have a calendar, with however many hours they need. My guy says he can't schedule tasks to have different "shifts." He has one main calendar, not resource calendars. That sounds wrong, but I don't use Project. He is using Project 98. I hope the correct question is in there somewhere.

    When you create a task in Project98, the work on the task is done according to the base calendar set for the project. All tasks are scheduled, to begin with, according to this calendar. The calendar which is used as the base calendar is chosen by going to project/project information on the menu bar, and you can change the hours worked on the base calendar in Tools/Change Working Time.

    When you assign a task to a resource, the task is then scheduled according to the resource's calendar rather than the base calendar. To begin with, resources all have the same base calendar, but one way you can change an individual resource's calendar is to go back to Tools/Change Working Time and choose the Resource's calendar from the drop down list at the top of the box.

    So, to get two tasks working on different schedules, assign the tasks to different resources and then change the resources' calendars.

    Hope this answers your question.
