9.0 Configuring Weekends and Holidays

You can configure Novell Vibe to recognize weekends and holidays. Currently, the weekend and holiday schedule is used only in relation to task durations. If you have designated weekends and holidays as discussed in this section, task durations exclude these days when calculating task due dates. For example, a task with a duration of 10 days translates into two full weeks (assuming a two-day weekend for each week). For more information about task durations, see Working with Tasks Folders in the Novell Vibe 3.2 User Guide.

NOTE:Configuring a weekend and holiday schedule or changing an existing weekend and holiday schedule does not immediately affect the due dates of existing tasks. Existing tasks are affected only after the due dates are recalculated, such as when a new task (that includes a task duration) is added to the Tasks folder where the existing tasks are located.

To configure weekends and holidays for your Vibe site:

  1. Log in to the Vibe site as the Vibe administrator.

  2. Click the Settings icon Configure E-Mail page in the upper right corner of the page, then click the Administration Console icon Configure E-Mail page.

    To remove a date as a holiday, select the date in the field on the left, then click Delete.
