Assigning and Managing Resources in Microsoft® Project 2013

Entering resource holidays

One of the biggest impacts on a project is resource availability, or, put more correctly, lack of it. It’s important that, as a project manager, you track your resource’s planned absences so that Project will not schedule the resource to work on vacation.

Enter a resource’s holidays

  1. In the Project tab, click the Change Working Time button.
  2. Choose the Resource whose holiday you wish to enter.
  3. Enter the holiday details on a new line in the Exceptions tab.
  4. Click OK.
