    when you create a resource you assign an availability rate which represents the number of hours of work per day.   What is the interaction or impact between this value, the calendar shift settings and availablity?   In other words if a person is working 9 hours per day, does the shift calendar have to reflect a 9 hour work shift and whcih one influences the availablity calculation?[left]

    The default shift for the base calendar is eight hours per day and you can set new shifts to override the default shift. when you change the resource availability value to some value other than the default one,it wont effect the shift calender.you need to manually change the shift calender to some other value.

    By default the availability in the calendar is reflected in the value of the resource availability on the properties page, but not vice versa. Therefore it is
    better not to change the value of the availability field, but consistently to adjust the availability with the shifts.

    See
    Resource availability and calendar
    for examples

    Hello Martti

    Your link points to "Resource_availablility_and_calendar.pdf" but  I suppose you improved it and renamed to "Resource_availablility_and_calendar_v2.pdf" so previous link is failing.

    Correct links:

    Resource_availablility_and_calendar_v2.pdf

    Resource_availablility_and_calendar_P2.pdf (part2)

    Thanks to Martti for sharing all this information

    Thanks for pointing that out.

    I don't keep track were I put the links, so if I update a doc because of a typo or something and rename it the old refecenes don't work anymore if I maintain just one verion.

    Not gonna do that anumore.
