Default assign weekend 24 hr calendar to some tasks

Hello,
On my schedule, I am using the standard calendar for everything, but for only some of the activities I must use a calendar that will go through weekend and 24 hours.

So first I entered the tasks using normal calendar, not doing anything special.

Now the schedule knows that the amount of work for a 2 day tasks I say there is 16 hours correct?

Only then, when I adjust the calendar to a 24 hour calendar, it will reduce the duration to 1 day?

And I saw that there is a readily available 24 hour calendar, but I need a 24 hour AND weekend calendar together so I must create a new one and assign that one to these tasks right?

So is my logic correct when I said I first enter them using normal calendar so project knows that normall it is a 2 day task?



And how do I assign some of the tasks to the calendar - I open the advanced view of EACH of those activities one by one and assign my 7/24 calendar to them?

The 24-hours calendar in Project already includes weekends as working time. It is 24 hours per day 7 days per week 365 days per year.

A 16 hour task will still show as 2 days duration because although you have assigned the 24 hours calendar, the definition of "day" = 8 hours. The start and finish date/times will be correct.

Add the Task Calendar field to a task view to quickly set calendars.
