MS Project 2007 – How To make weekend days working days


Some Teams are working either 7 days a week or maybe you need a 24×7 coverage in planning for a support team.

Per default Project has a 5×8 hours weeks.

This describes the easiest way to change to work 16 hours over the weekend.

What do I have?




I want to show and calculate the weekend working days:







1. Open a new Project in MS Project

2. Goto “Tools” -> “Change Working time”

In the “For calendar” “Standard (Project Calendar) you see the weekends grey marked as non working days.


Now the easiest way is to go to “work weeks” -> “Details” -> and change the Saturday and Sunday to work from xx:00 – xx:00


See the result straight after clicking “OK”
