Create, modify, and delete schedule calendars

Schedule calendars determine the working days in a project schedule. By default, Tekla EPM uses a schedule calendar with a five-day working week from Monday to Friday, excluding national holidays. If necessary, in the Schedule Calendars dialog box, you can create additional schedule calendars. For example, this can be useful if your shop has a seven-day working week. You can also modify or delete the existing schedule calendars, and select which schedule calendar is used as the default option.

To access the Schedule Calendars dialog box, do the following:

  1. Click the Maintenance ribbon tab.

  2. On the menu, select Project Management > Schedule Calendars.

You can view the existing schedule calendars on the left side of the Schedule Calendars dialog box.

Create a schedule calendar

  1. Click New.
  2. In the Calendar Description field, type a name for the new calendar.
  3. Select the check box next to each weekday that you want to mark as a working day.

    Note that in the calendar at the bottom of the dialog box, the non-working days are bolded.

  4. Click Add.

The new schedule calendar is added to the list on the left side of the dialog box. If necessary, you can now add working day exceptions to the schedule calendar.

Add working day exceptions

If necessary, you can add working day exceptions to a schedule calendar. For example, you can set national holidays as non-working days, or set a particular Saturday or Sunday as a working day.

  1. In the list on the left side of the Schedule Calendars dialog box, click the calendar to which you want to add working day exceptions.
  2. At the bottom of the dialog box, click Working Day Exceptions.
  3. In the Schedule Calendar - Working Day Exceptions dialog box, click New.
  4. Type a description for the working day exception.
  5. If you want the date to be a working day, select the Is Working Day check box.
  6. Select the exception date in the calendar.
  7. Click Add.

The working day exception is added to the list on the left side of the Schedule Calendar - Working Day Exceptions dialog box.

If necessary, you can select a working day exception in the list, and then either:
  • Modify the working day exception by changing its properties and clicking Edit.
  • Delete the working day exception by clicking Delete, and then Yes to confirm.

Set a schedule calendar as the default option

The current default schedule calendar is marked with an asterisk (*) in the list on the left side of the Schedule Calendars dialog box. If you want to use another calendar as the default option, do the following:

  2. Click Set as Default.
  3. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes to set the selected calendar as the default option in all new project schedules.

The selected calendar is set as the default option and marked with an asterisk (*).
