2501331 - The Project Task Calendar Field is Empty.

Symptom

The Project Task Calendar Field is Empty.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project Management work center
  2. Go to Projects view
  3. Choose Show all
  4. Find Project XYZ
  5. Choose button Edit - Project Plan
  6. Choose Project TAsk XYZ-1
  7. Go to Scheduling sub tab calendar is empty

    As expected, the Calendar should default to "<country> with X working days" but is blank.

Cause

The Calendar in the project defaults from the Business Configuration ->Fine Tune Activity Project Types -> Default Working Day Calender and it is used for setting calendar type for the whole Project.From there it influences the complete task hierarchy, without the need to copy the calendar to each task (implicit inheritance). The field on the Project Task level is used for setting calendar type deviating from the Project header calendar type.

If it is not filled it means that Calendar type maintained on the Project Header is valid. The field content is not filled by the system but can be set manually.


If the project is created before the calendar settings were maintained in Business Configuration ->Fine Tune Activity Project Types -> Default Working Day Calender. For newly created projects you should get calendar filled on the Project Header (and this will be valid for all tasks unless you enter some other calendars for them

Resolution

The system works as designed.
