Primavera P6 Training Tips – Assigning Calendars to Activities

In P6, project activities often require a different calendar from the default Project Calendar that is assigned in the Project Information form. Primavera enables each activity to be assigned a unique calendar.

An Activity Calendar may be assigned by the General tab of the Bottom Layout or by displaying the Calendar column.

Assigning a Calendar Using General Tab of the Bottom Layout Form

  • Select one activity that you want to assign to a different calendar. Multiple activity selection may not be used. Open the General tab of the Bottom Layout,
  • Click on the  icon in the Activity Calendar box to open the Select Activity Calendar form,
  • Select either Global or Project from the drop down list in the top left menu, and
  • Select an Activity calendar by clicking the  icon.

Assigning a Calendar Using a Column

You may also display the Calendar column and edit the activity calendar from this column. The process of displaying a column is covered in the Formatting the Display chapter.

Edit, Fill Down may be used to assign a new calendar to multiple selected activities.
