Create or edit task calendars

By default, tasks are scheduled based on the project calendar. To define unique or specific exceptions, such as machinery that runs during nonworking time, or an office move that can occur only on a weekend, you can create a task calendar for individual tasks that override the project calendar.

To create a new Base/Task-Calendar in iTaskX choose „Edit” > „Working Times…” or use the Working Times toolbar icon.

This sheet shows the available calendars (Base- and Resource-Calendars) in the left portion. To create a new Base-Calendar click on the „+” button.

The right portion of the „Working Times” sheet contain two tabs:

Use „Simple” to define the general working days and hours of your calendar, as well as regular non-working times like weekends and evenings.

To make changes select a calendar in the left portion of the sheet, select one or more weekdays and edit their working times or set them as „Work-free” by using the check box.

Use „Advanced” to change working times for special days, for example, holidays or special days off. iTaskX doesn’t include a preset holiday calendar. If you want to add holidays or special days off for your project you must specify them one at a time or import this days from the macOS Calendar App by using the more button.

To change a special day, or time range select a calendar in the left portion of the sheet, double click on a date in the calendar and edit their working times or set them as „Work-free” by using the check box. You can also the „+” button to add new exceptions.

To edit an existing exception, simply double-click on the desired name in the exception list.

After you have created a new Base-Calendar, you need to assign that calendar to a task.

To assign a calendar to a task:

  1. Select the desired task.
  2. Click on the „Info” inspector and select a calendar in the „Calendar” pop-up („Extra” pane).

If you have activated the „Ignore resource calendars” check box, the task is scheduled even if the resource that is assigned to the task has nonworking time set in his or her resource calendar.
