I'm in a region where the weekend days are Friday & Saturday. When I select the workdays ... the Gantt chart still reflecting that weekends are Sat/Sunday. How can I change that?

Hi Ehab in the Task Info Task Pane click on Calendar and display options, and de-select Friday and Saturday as workdays

I just tried.
Made a testmap with 3 tasks
starts today and resp 1 -3 -1 workdays

As  what Colin suggests ....But  this time I also changed the week working days via File=> options=Taskinfo and ticked friday -off and sunday -on.

It works the schedule takes friday and saturday as weekend.
And Sunday as a working day

You have to fiddle about with some examples to see what happens and to understand how it is designed.

I have also tried the above and found on another forum, that this is a bug and only available on the Enterprise solution. Or is this old knowledge? How can I change the calendar for the Middle-East working days? Really missing that option.

Hi Melissa,

You should be able to do this in the Calendar & task options dialog as shown below:

After changing that, Friday and Saturday are shaded in the Gantt view and you can place tasks on Sunday.
