Setting up Multiple National Calendars

OCZ will have people working at least 3 countries (US,UK and Taiwan) so we need to have 3 versions of base calendars so that work is not planned on National holidays.

I tried to make a start on this I have defined a group of UK employees and changed the group calendar to have the UK national holidays but that does not change their default calendars and seems to require that each person has to base their own calendar on the group one to pull in the holidays.  Is that the way to do it  or is there, as I hope there will be, a quicker way  to do that.  I know Christine is setting up US and TW groups and the US will be a large group!

Thanks

Hi David,

There is an option under 'Apply on Members' that allows you to apply the groups calendar settings to members of the group.

  1. Click User Groups

  2. Select User Group

  3. In 'Common' tab, click Apply on Members and select 'Calendar'

Hi Vanessa,

I have a task performed by our Chinese  partner between  2/13/15-2/20/15, after applying a calendar including the Chinese new year 2/15-3/1 this task dates performed by the Chinese partner and successors tasks performed by US resources have not changed.

What's the expected behavior for this scenario, not changing the due date of  task that the a non working days occur in the middle of it.

A successor task performed by the Chinese partner was pushed to after the new year

 

Thanks

Matt

Hi Matt,

Out of the box, when you add a non-working day exception, work items will be updated as a result of the exception. The system should remind you before you save the exception - see screenshot (http://screencast.com/t/i5cNojCXgs1).

If this is not the case, please open a case with us so that we can investigate further. Be sure to provide us with an access link so that we can access your environment and a direct link to the task performed by your Chinese partner.

You can grant now access by clicking "Grant Login Access" from your "My Profile" page. If you do not see this button, this means the feature needs to be enabled by your system admin. Please see the following KB article for instructions on how to enable this feature. - https://success.clarizen.com/entries/103570996-Grant-Account-Login-Access-no-login-credentials-needed-

Hello Vanessa, I have followed your steps above to add national holidays to members of a group. Now when I view an individual's calendar it notes the holiday exceptions in a panel on the right hand side, however does not add them directly to the calendar. How can the holidays be added/made visible directly in the individual calendar?

Since the Holidays are added a group level, the user level calendar will not show the holiday on the actual calendar. It will show the day grayed out and the corresponding exception in the right panel. This is what you are seeing correct? But you want to see the holiday on the calendar DAY, not on the side panel...do we understand this correctly?

 

Sincerely, 

Boris

Yes, it is what I am seeing and you do understand me correctly that I want to holidays to display in the actual calendar, just like they do on the group calendar. Since I cannot load the holidays to the individual calendar and I can load them to the group calendar, I would like to see them in the individual calendar for greater clarity than noting them in the side panel, which only list them and not what days they are on.

Hi,

 

There are few issues with the Calendar. (probably because of setting of fixed duration)

  1. If they days off fall in the middle of a task the dues date of the task will not change

  2. I change the calendar for a group of resource to 6 days a week not change in the schedule other than for a task of 10 days the work is calculated as if they work 11 days.

@Gunnar - I have raised this as a Change Request. Your change request was logged. ID: CR-240059.

 

@Matti - Please open a ticket for the issues you are reporting. Setting time off in calendar should automatically update your tasks. You should even be warned about this via pop up. If it is not occurring, the first thing you should verify is that the time off exception is being submitted as a non-working day. If it is specified as a Working Day, then the dates on the work plan will not update.

 

Sincerely, 

Boris
