Verifying and Updating Work Calendars

A work calendar defines the week start day, working / non-working days of the week, and default working hours.


Audere makes it easy to manage your resources' time with the default calendar or additional work calendars.

Note: This functionality is only available for Administrators and Owners.

In Work Calendars, you can:
  • Verify the default work calendar and use as-is
  • Update the default calendar to best match the needs of your organization (single calendar for all users)
  • Add more calendars to assign different calendars to different users (multiple calendars)

Note: Once multiple calendars exist, you can designate one of them as the default calendar. The default calendar is applied to all users unless otherwise set.

Verify the Default Work Calendar

A default work calendar is provided with standard settings.
  1. Select your Profile icon in the upper-right corner of the page and then select Account Settings from the drop-down menu to open the Account Settings page.

  3. Review the following defaults set for the work calendar created for your Schedule:

    • First Day of the Week: Monday
    • Name: Default
    • Working Days: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday (weekdays)
    • Weekly Hours: 40
    • Default: automatically enabled on the default calendar
If everything looks good, you're all set. If not, continue to Update a Work Calendar for help updating the calendar.

  4. Enter the number of default working hours for a day to mark it as a Working Day or (0) zero to set the day as a Non-Working Day. This calculates the total Weekly Hours for the Schedule.

  5. Once complete, select Update to save or Cancel to close the dialog without saving.
After updating a work calendar, affected team members logged into the schedule page will receive a live update message. Selecting Ok in the prompt will implement the change.

Caution: Inform team members about the calendar update before applying it. Unsaved work may be lost after applying the live update.

    Delete a Work Calendar

    In the Edit Calendar dialog, select the Delete button to delete that work calendar.

    • The default calendar can't be deleted.
    • If you delete a calendar that has people associated to it, those people shift to the default calendar once it's deleted.
