Business Hours settings help you to calculate the task duration based on your settings. When you choose an existing project / task template for a real time project, all its tasks, milestones, forums and comments are shifted based on the Project Start Date / Shift Date and its Business Hours settings.
For a real time project, when you choose an existing Task template which has its START AFTER and DURATION set in days, based on Business Hours settings the weekends and holidays are automatically skipped while calculating the task Due date.
If you choose this template for an actual project with the Shift Date as September 14, 2013 (Saturday), the actual task Start date will fall on October 1, 2013 (Tuesday) and its Due date on October 10, 2013 (Thursday).
When you choose this template for a project with the Shift Date as September 14, 2013 (Saturday), the task Start date is supposed to fall on September 28, 2013 (Saturday). However, it is automatically moved to the next business day September 30 (Monday) and its Due date on October 10, 2013 (Thursday).
When you choose this template for a project with the Shift Date as September 14, 2013 (Saturday) 10:00 hrs, the actual task Start date will fall on September 30, 2013 (Monday)10:00 hrs, and its Due date on October 4, 2013 (Friday), 19:00 hrs.
