Q. 4 What is calendar and how many types of calendar defined in MS Project?

Calendars determine how resources assigned to tasks are scheduled and how tasks themselves are scheduled. Base calendars are sets of working and nonworking times and days that the three other types of calendars use. Those calendar types are:

  1. Project calendar
  2. Resource calendar
  3. Task calendar

Base calendars can be used for the project calendar and task calendars, and provide the basis for resource calendars. Project and resource calendars identify when work on tasks can take place, ensuring that resources are scheduled only when they're available for work.

Project calendars affect the default for when tasks are scheduled.

Resource calendars affect a specific resource or category of resources.

Task calendars make it possible for tasks to have a calendar different from the project calendar.
