Working Schedules

Any administrator can set a site-wide working schedule. Go to the Admin menu and choose Site Working Schedule. The site-wide working schedule is used:

Each user can also set their own personal working schedule by going to the Admin menu and choosing Working Schedule. The personal working schedule is used:

Adminstrators can access individual users' working schedules via the Users page. Choose Users from the Admin menu, find the user, and click on the small calendar icon next to their name.

% Time Spent per Project

FogBugz 7 assumes that you spend 100% of your work time on tasks that could be tracked in FogBugz. If you work on a few projects at once, you can break this down into a set of percentages per project. This allows FogBugz's Evidence-Based Scheduling algorithm to predict more accurate completion dates for project milestones.

Working Days

Determines which days of the week normally worked.

The value entered here on the site working schedule only determines the default for new FogBugz users. It does not affect existing users.

Daily Schedule

Determines the hours that you normally work, and if and when you have a lunch break.

On the site working schedule, this section determines the default daily schedule for new users. However, changing these values will not affect existing users.

The site daily schedule is also used to convert between hours and days when typing estimates, so, for example, if you work 8 hours a day, entering estimates of "8h" or "1d" are the same.

Holidays and Vacations

On the site working schedule, allows you to enter and edit holidays when nobody will be working. For accurate schedules, enter all the planned holidays for the next couple of years, and keep this up to date.

For individual users, this section shows both site holidays and personal vacations. Users can enter and edit their upcoming planned vacations. Site holidays are read-only.
