Working with Business Calendar : Understanding the Business Calendar

Understanding the Business Calendar

The Business Calendar provides a default out-of-box calendar, which displays the calendar for the current year. The default calendar does not display any non-working days, except on Saturday and Sunday.
You can create your own calendar using the default calendar settings, and customize the calendar according to your preferences. For example, you can create separate calendars for your offices in different countries.
The default calendar has the following working schedule:
*Working hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with 12 noon to 1 p.m. designated as lunch hour.
*Every Saturdays and Sundays are designated as non-working days.
You can also create customized working schedules using the Business Calendar tool, and then apply them to multiple calendars. You can use a customized schedule to:
*Change the default working hours.
*Change the working and non-working days of the week. For instance, mark “Saturday” as a working day or mark “Friday” as a non-working day.
*Mark a particular date (example, 25th December) as a non-working day.
