Updated: May 17, 2018

The Default Calendar in Microsoft Project is the Standard 5 Day Week Calendar, and we have the two other calendars in the Global.MPT which are "24 Hrs" and "Night Shift".


You can change the Working Timings to change the calendar.

Here is the process for this


Step 1: 

Open the Microsoft Project 2010 and go to "Project" in the menu bar and then click on "Change Work Time"

Step 2:

Then in the Wizard "Change Work Time". Click on the "Create a New Calendar"



Step 3 : 

In the Wizard, Type the Desired Calendar name, here i am typing as the "6 Days Calendar". and then Click "OK"


Step 4:

Then in the Wizard, Select the "Work Weeks" at the bottom and click on "Details" at the right side of the wizard.



Step 5:

Now here, Observe that all the 5 working days will be having the working timings as 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. So select the 6th day Sat'day and Select "Set Day(s) to these Specific Working times:" on the right side and specify the timings at the bottom of the window.
