Different Working Days within one sheet

Is there a way to have different working days for different rows within the same sheet? Some tasks in my sheet have durations based on a 5 day week and others are based on a 7 day week but I can only seem to set this at account or sheet level not individual row/task level

  • I don't know how else to explain other than what I've said above. In MS Project you can use multiple calendars and choose which calendar to use for specific tasks/items. This doesn't seem possible in SmartSheet. Some tasks exclude weekend work (typical office tasks) therefore based on 5 day work week but other tasks are carried out over a 7 day work week including weekends (workshop and offshore operations for example)

    If I have my Gantt chart project settings as below (which is fine for office based tasks) then when I add a task that will be completed based on a 7 day work week (offshore operation) then if I enter a duration of 28days it won't work out the correct end date as it will exclude weekends.

    I can't create different sheets as offshore tasks have office based tasks as predecessors so needs to be within the same sheet.

    What I need to do doesn't seem possible in SmartSheet therefore I was looking for feedback on any potential workarounds or future improvements.

    Thanks
