Custom Calendars are a great way to manage working and non-working days. Use Custom Calendars to: add different types of days off (from national holidays to vacations and sick leaves), designate additional working days, let users edit their regular workweek, and identify non-working days (for example, specify workdays for part-time employees). Custom Calendars are also helpful for accounting departments when they need to generate payroll reports.
- Although Collaborators do not have access to Custom Calendars, account admins can view and edit a Collaborator’s calendar.
To read about how admins can edit Custom Calendars, please visit the Custom Calendars - Admins page.

When the task’s schedule overlaps with an extra day off or with vacation days in the assignee’s calendar, Wrike automatically adjusts the task’s due date by shifting it into the future. When this occurs, the task’s total duration remains the same, but now the task schedule accounts for the days when the assignee is not able to work. Wrike warns you about the conflict in the Assign and Schedule dialogs.
If the start/due date is on a non-working day, it will be shifted to the next working day. To restore the original due date and ignore the calendar exception, you can click on the “Work on weekends” checkmark 1.
The same happens when you add exceptions/days off from your individual calendar view: if you have some tasks assigned for that period, you will get a pop-up with a list of affected tasks prompting you to choose the preferable action.
In cases when there are multiple assignees in the task, the due date will be adjusted only when all of the assignees have a non-working day or days. In the rest of the cases with multiple assignees the system assumes that no due date shift is needed.
