Copy an existing calendar

If an existing calendar has many of the same holidays and other calendar items that you want to use in a new calendar, you can base a new calendar on an existing calendar. Copy the existing calendar in Microsoft Project Web App, and then modify the copy in Microsoft Project Professional 2010. For example, if the standard calendar in your organization captures all of the organization's unique holidays and events, but you need a separate calendar to reflect an all day, every day working schedule, you can copy the standard calendar and then modify it for the all day, every day schedule.

To create a new calendar as a copy of an existing calendar:

  1. On the Quick Launch, in the Settings section, click Server Settings.

  2. On the Server Settings page, in the Enterprise Data section, click Enterprise Calendars.

  3. Click the row that contains the calendar that you want to copy, and then click Copy Calendar.

  4. On the Copy Calendar dialog box, type the name that you want to use for the new calendar in the Name box, and then click OK.

The calendar is added to the list on the Enterprise Calendars page.

  1. Click the row that contains the new, copied calendar, and then click Edit Calendar.

If the Windows Security dialog box appears, log on to Microsoft Project Server 2010.

Project Professional 2010 opens and displays the Change Working Time dialog box.

  1. Use the calendar with the Exceptions and Work Weeks tabs to modify the working and nonworking times for your organization. For more information, see Modify working and nonworking times.

  2. Click OK on the Change Working Time dialog box to save the new calendar to Project Server 2010.

  3. Close Project Professional 2010.
