Default URGENT PLEASE: Project Calendar company holidays

Hi all,



I'm hoping someone can help with a problem I am encountering with calendars on MS Project 2013 .

I have multiple projects which I have inserted as subprojects, managing these via a Master project file.

I am trying to add company holidays /Christmas downtime to each of these projects on an individual basis via the exceptions tab on the 'Change working time' settings to show periods when our office are closed. I am not adding these exceptions via the Master schedule view.

However, when I close the individual project file down and then reopen it to view the project again, any exceptions that have added have now disappeared. I have tried this numerous times with the same result across all 20 projects on my Master project schedule.

Can someone point out what I am doing wrong? I need an urgent resolution as the new MD is looking for an update and I don't want to appear like a buffoon!

Thanks in advance to anyone who can shed light.

Kind regards
Barry

Hello Barry,
if you manage the subprojects via a Master project file, you should have a resource project pool.
You must open the resource project not in "read only option" but in "read-write option", so you can make changes to resource information.
After opening the resource project, click in "project" tab and then in "change working time": now you can planning the company Holiday setting the non-workings days in the base calendar.
Ensure to save the file when you close it: when you'll open a subproject file, you should view the changes.
Regards
Codeghi

Hi Barry,
Just to clarify. Are you opening each project file individually (not by opening the master project?) Are you using Project Server by chance?
