Choose Holiday File Override dialog box

Use this dialog box to select a file to supply the holidays for the Project Timeline activity center for the current project only. It will override the holiday file selected in the Servers tab (for all projects) of the Project Center Administration activity center. Select the Project Center project containing the file from the left column.

A sample holiday file is stored in the templates directory in C:\Program Files\Newforma\2022 Edition\Project Center\Templates\Sample_Holiday_File.xlsx.

If the project you want to add the file from does not appear in the this column, click to open the Select a Project dialog box to select the project.

My Computer

Click to access the Open dialog box if you want to add the file from any Windows folder outside of Project Center.


Look In

Select the project folder in which the file is located. A list of folders in the project is listed. When you select the folder, the files from that folder are listed, including the names, types, sizes, modification dates, and the full paths to the files.

File Name

The name of the file selected.

Files of Type

Filter the list by selecting the file type you are looking for from this drop-down menu (either a Microsoft Excel file, or a file of type . ICS)

If you choose an Excel file as the holiday file, the holidays from the Excel file will be used to create a new .ICS  file with the same holidays, which will be used by Project Center instead.

You can only import .ICS files that were created in Project Center.
