Specifying task durations in months

This may sound like a foolish questions..... I specify my task durations in days.  Can I specify some of them in months?  The reason I ask is that I noticed that when I enter a duration as 6 it displays "6d" for 6 days.  We have a number of tasks that have contractual commitment in 3 months.  Therefore, the need to be able to specify in terms of months.

    The closest you have is either 4w (4 weeks) or more accurate most of the time would be e91d for 3 months.


    The "e" tells it to ignore non-working days so this is 91 calendar days (pretty close to 3 months)


    Note that 91d without the "e" is work-days so 18+1 work-weeks, not 13 for a quarter.

    Contrarily, "4w" is only 20 working days (for a 5 day work week) and is not equal to 28d


    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, Craig!  I will look at this more closely.  It sounds like a good possibility.


    Thanks, again...
