Schedule tasks to avoid them extending over non-working time.
Posted on 2010-01-12
I'm working on a scheduling system for the company that I work for. It was decided that Project 2007 was the best solution for our needs however there is one slight niggle that keeps getting in my way.
The problem is some of the tasks I need to schedule must begin and end in the same (continuous) working block. They must not span say a non-working weekend. Is there any way of telling Project that once this task has started it can't be stopped until it has completed and must not enter or extened over a non-working block.
An example follows:
Working periods (09:00 - 12:00, 13:00 - 17:00), Each task has a duration on 1 hour. First task begins at 09:30, second at 10:30. The third not start until 13:00 as it can't enter the non-working period of 12:00 - 13:00 however Project would start to task at 11:30 and complete it at 13:30.
Thanks in advance for your help,
