While stepping in to classroom Kamal uttered “It’s not working”, “Calendar feature is not working as expected”. As he settled down, said “Let me start my laptop and show you what I did”.

Kamal created a new calendar by making copy of standard calendar by following the instructions he learned from previous class ( Creating new calendar in MS Project 2013) considering Monday as holiday.

Then Kamal set this calendar as project calendar through Project tab => Project Information command => Calendar drop down.

He is now pointing that though new project calendar says that Monday is holiday it is not seen in gantt chart.

He is correct. At present time scale of gantt chart shows the default details as per standard calendar.

It is very easy to apply different calendar in gantt chart.

Right click on gantt chart => Non-working time => select appropriate calendar.
