Calendars are a way for me to set working time and non-working time and allow Primavera to schedule the work around those constraints. Now if I dive into a calendar which we’ll do a little bit later. If I dive into how a calendar is set up, we'll see that there's really three levels of working time, non-working time constraints. The first level is really down at the hourly level.
