Change task scheduling options defaults for days, weeks, and months

​​You can change task scheduling defaults to indicate how much time you want to constitute a day, a week, and a month when entering and reviewing durations in a task view. It can also help you synchronize task scheduling with what you've established in the working time calendars for resource.

  1. On the File menu, click Options, and then click the Schedule tab.
  2. If you want to change how many hours' planner schedules for 1 day, enter it in the Hours per day box.

For example, if you want Planner to schedule 6 hours when you enter a 1-day duration, type or select 6 in the Hours per day box.

  1. If you want to change how many hours Planner schedules for 1 week, enter it in the Hours per week box.

For example, if you want planner to schedule 30 hours when you enter a 1-week duration, type or select 30 in the Hours per week box.

  1. If you want to change how many days planner schedules for 1 month, enter it in the Days per month box.

For example, if you want planner to schedule 24 days when you enter a 1-month duration, type or select 24 in the Days per month box.

Note  The settings you make on the Calendar tab do not change the project calendar or resource calendars. You can change project or resource calendars using the Change Working Time on the Project menu. ​
