|Return to Configuration Overview|
By default, Task Master uses a 24-hour day, 7-day week, 365-day calendar to schedule tasks. Nights, weekends and holidays are not excluded in task schedule calculations, but they can be. If you want to define specific workdays, exclude holidays, or enforce working hours for tasks, you can configure these settings in the Task Master tool pane. The workdays and working hours you select are designated as the only time that tasks can be worked on. Task schedule calculations will only include the days and times you specify in the tool pane settings.
NOTE: In Task Master 3.5 and above for SharePoint 2010/2013, you have the option to exclude lunch breaks.
The following settings can be configured in the Task Master tool pane. Click a setting to learn more.
