GanttProject: Adding Time Off for Resources


GanttProject allows the user to set time off from work for individual resources for vacations, leave, etc.

NOTE: Weekends are automatically listed as days off. You can only edit this when you create a new project. If you wish to edit weekends on an existing project, you will have to create a new project and then import information from the old one.

Adding Time Off for Resources:

1. Select the Resources tab on the top left of the window, and right-click on the resource for which time off needs to be added. From the resulting menu, click on Resource Properties.
