P6 XML Import Template Doesn't Convert Global Calendars to Project Calendars (Doc ID 2993816.1)

Last updated on DECEMBER 19, 2023

Applies to:

Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management Cloud Service - Version 22.12 to 23.11 [Release 22.12 to 23.11]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


During P6 .XML import while using the Import Template under Advanced - Calendars and Action - Move to Project, the only calendar that is converted to Project and assigned to All activities is the default calendar of the incoming schedule. Other calendars/assignments don't make it through.

For the existing calendar assignments to remain assigned, and for the global calendars to be moved to project level

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Export a project that has multiple global calendars assigned to activities to P6 XML format
  2. Import the P6 XML from step 1, but modify the import template on the advanced tab
  3. Set all of the global calendars to 'move to project'
  4. Complete import.
  5. Check the calendars on activities, some have lost the original calendar assignment and in Enterprise-> Calendars, notice the global calendars have NOT been moved to project level.
