What is Task Calendar


Task Calendar is a schedule of independent working activities (that do not belong to any project), or a calendar that displays time-related positioning of particular steps included into one task, so with a help of a task calendar workers can orient in time while executing certain tasks. Usually tasks are incorporated into project schedules, but for all other cases when it is impossible, a task calendar can be composed to record (schedule) tasks by their association with certain resource – a worker or unit of equipment. In other words a task calendar is a way for project managers and business planners to avoid adjusting key project assumptions (such as timeline) when adding some exceptions. 

Task calendar can be utilized as a tool to represent certain contingencies taking place in the project: for example when some employee is not able to work on Friday, but he is ready to compensate this standstill by working on Saturday – if to represent this case, or any other similar one, on the project schedule, then it will require frequent project change requests, schedule modifications, etc, so when you deal with a middle or large project, such insignificant variability shouldn’t be recognized by its “bureaucracy” as it can be too costly – instead of this, exceptions can be managed by task calendars that are controlled by field managers, while the master schedules stay untouched.
