New in version 28
remote work periods.
To configure these parameters in the Project Monitoring Center, expand
and select "Schedules and leaves".

This information is only taken into account when establishing the schedule, for calculating time periods. For more details, see Using the schedule and the task management
Configuring working days and hours
Configuring working days
Configuring working days consists in defining the working days (for each half day).
For each day of the week, you can define whether someone works in the morning and/or in the afternoon.
Configuring working hours
Configuring the working hours is used to define the working hours for each half day.
- No specific action must be performed at lunch time: the task must not be stopped
- When the task is stopped (locked or validated), the configurations given for the working days and for the working hours are automatically taken into account.
Configuring leaves and public holidays
The leave configuration window allows you to define non-working days .
This data will be taken into account by the schedule.
Two types of leaves can be viewed:
- Personal leave: these are the leave dates entered by the contributor.
New in version 28Suggested leave
: these are the leave dates suggested by the administrator (option available for administrators only). To manage a project efficiently, leaves must be scheduled for all the contributors at the same time (or around the same time).

- If necessary, click "Personal leave".
