I am learning to use MS Project for a student project and trying to change the default working hours. I am not able to make this configuration change. How does one modify this setting? I tried figuring out using online help but no luck so far.
In Microsoft Project 2007, from the top menu, go to Tools > Change Working Times. In the opened dialog, click on Options. In this new dialog box, you may change the working hours.
Change Working Time dialog:
For Project 2013: Project ribbon, Change Working time command. Then follow the directions above. You will need to change the Work Weeks Default definition in the first dialog (Change Working Time) and also change the Hours per Day and Hours per week setting on the second.
My question is - are you trying to control the number of available hours (4 per day) for a resource or for the entire project.
