Assigning and Managing Resources in Microsoft® Project 2013

Changing a resource’s working day

The amount of time that a resource is potentially available is defined by the resource’s working calendar. When a resource is created, that resource inherits a copy of the project calendar (including any exceptions to the standard working week). If the resource works a different number of hours from those defined in the project calendar or a different shift pattern, then you might want to update the resource’s calendar to reflect this.

Change a resource’s working day

  1. In the Project tab, click the Change Working Time button.
  2. Choose the resource whose working day you would like to change.
  3. Click the Work Weeks tab and highlight the appropriate week.
  4. Click the Details button.

  5. Edit the specific working times for the work week.
  6. Click OK.

  7. Click OK to exit the remaining dialog boxes.
