Calendars let the Viewpath system knows what the available schedules are. When you create an Organization, a default Standard Work Week calendar (Monday - Friday 9am-5pm) is also created, and automatically applied to projects if no other calendars are specified.
You can create your own calendars, if you would like to track different events for you or your team, and have those events visible when you are scheduling your project tasks.
Once you have created Calendars, they are available to assign to projects on the Projects page. To create a calendar, click the 3-bar icon in the upper left, and select Projects, then click on the Calendars section. You can click the checkmark in the Default column on Calendars to set calendar(s) to be applied as default(s) to projects created in that organization. You can also create calendars for specific purposes, or specific projects.
A Standard Work Week calendar and US Holidays calendar are available from the 3-dot menu on the far right. Just select the calendar, and then assign it to the Organization you want it applied to. You can add additional dates to the standard calendars as well. Simply open the calendar, click the "+" and add the event-specific information.
You can also add customized calendars for a variety of scenarios: individual, group- or org-wide calendars to track travel days, PTO, training, etc.; holidays specific to your country or region; workdays which differ from Standard Work Week calendar, etc. Use your imagination!
To create custom calendars, click the "+" in the upper left corner. Choose a name for the calendar, as well as which org it should be applied to.
Calendars behave similar to projects: create an event by clicking the "+" in the toolbar, and then customize your event details, including assigning the event to the appropriate person(s).
