The Calendar/Event Planner

With the Calendar, you can schedule events for yourself and for others. With just a few clicks of a mouse, you can bring colleagues together for meetings and events that help to fulfill the goals of your organization. The Calendar can also be used to help manage the progress of projects, organize social functions, and promote corporate activities. 

Elements of the Calendar Feature

When you open Calendar for the first time, you will be shown the current day's schedule of events.

Use the navigation bar to the left to navigate through your schedule. The above figure is an example of day schedule.


Calendar Views


When you click a day in your calendar, or when you open your calendar, the calendar opens in Day mode. 

To see the details of a schedule, click the event name. 

NOTE: Clicking the time next to an event will open a new event window, prompting you for a new schedule. Calendar allows you to schedule more than one event at a time.



When viewing the schedule for a day, you can see the schedule for the week by clicking 'Week' in the navigation bar, to the left.

To open the schedule for a specific day, click either the day name, or the date.

To schedule an event, click [Add]. The 'Add Event' window will open. The 'Add Event' window will always open with the date set for the day in which you opened the window.

NOTE: From the 'Add Event' window, you can schedule an event for any time or day, and not just within the time frame in which you opened the 'Add Event' window.



Like the Week view, you can view a day's schedule by clicking the date. To open the 'Add Event' page, click the [Add] link.

To view the schedule for a specific week, click the week value on the left of the Month view. For instance, to see the schedule for the week of October 3-9, click the '41' in the blue Week column on the left.



When the Year view is open, clicking a day value will open the window for the schedule of that day. Clicking a Month name will open the schedule for that month.

Those dates that contain a scheduled event will be shown in bold.
