Setting different working days for individuals

Is there a way to set different working days for individuals? I know that it is possible to define working days through the Project Settings function but I want to set this for one person only to reflect their part time working structure - is this possible?

Any advice would be gratefully received.

Thanks

  • Hi Harriet,

    At this time it's not possible to set up specific working days per-resource or per-person; as you've found, you can set working days for the Sheet in the Project Settings, but this will apply to the entire sheet/project, not just to one individual. (Please submit an Enhancement Request when you have a moment!)

    Depending on how your set up looks, you could potentially set up your project to have different people with their own specific sheet/working days, then use a Report to pull together specific information across these sheets.

    Alternatively, you may want to look into 10,000ft as a resource management software for tracking working days & individual workload.

    Cheers!

  • Ok thanks

  • Hi

    My Engineering team asked about this again, as many companies have a global workforces I suspect this is a common request. I did file an enhancement request in Oct 2020.

    I understand 10,000ft is more geared towards resource management but it's not clear it actually solves this problem (holiday schedule per resource on a single Smartsheet)

    Does anyone have a solution that does not involved multiple sheets/reports?

    My sheets have a column that automatically populates a column with the world region for each resource, would be useful to use that to confirm working days vs non-working days. (again per resource on the same sheet)

    Thanks,
