Each resource can have a unique calendar, enabling you to accommodate different work
schedules for individual people, pieces of equipment, and materials. A resource calendar
is a copy of a base calendar that you modify to meet a resource’s special schedule.
SureTrak creates a new resource calendar each time you define a resource; until you
customize it for the resource, it is an exact copy of the base calendar you select for it.

The resource calendar inherits the worktimes and holidays from the base calendar. You
can specify a new workweek or use the base calendar’s workweek. You can then modify
the base calendar’s worktimes and holidays to fit the unique worktimes of the resource.
For example, to meet a deadline, some resources may work on a day that is normally a
nonworkday. For example, the Testing department may work Saturdays—normally a
nonworkday—for the last month of a project. In this case, associate the resource with a
base calendar, then add the Saturdays that the department will work as exceptions to that
base calendar.

You can also choose Define,
Calendars, then choose
Resource to display a list of
resources and the
associated base calendars.

To define a resource workweek Choose Define, Resources, then click Calendars;
SureTrak lists all resource calendars. In the Select Calendar section, select the resource
whose calendar you want to define.

If you have not associated a resource with a base calendar, SureTrak automati-
cally associates the resource with calendar 1, the Normal Workweek calendar.

In the Calendars dialog box, click Workweek. By default, the resource calendars use its
base calendar’s workweek. To modify the workweek, clear the Use Base Workweek
checkbox. Select the workhours or nonworkhours for this resource, then click Work or
Nonwork to make them workhours or nonworkhours, respectively. Click OK.

For more information about
resources and resource
calendars, see the Building a
Resource Plan chapter.

After you define the resource calendar’s workweek, you can define any exceptions to that
workweek, such as vacations or machine downtime. You can also define exceptions for
this resource to the exceptions inherited from the base calendar, such as weekend days
that this particular resource will work.

Right-click and select another calendar
from the drop-down list to specify a
different base calendar for the resource.

Choose Resource, and define a base
calendar that corresponds to each resource.

Click to define the workweek.

Mark to have this resource calendar inherit all
future changes to its base calendar but not
exceptions such as holidays.

Double-click an hour to switch it from work
to nonwork or from nonwork to work.
