Calendar Views

IceWarp Desktop Client's calendar supports multiple layout views. It is possible to select a suitable view type.

Tip: Calendar users can create a completely custom view by simply holding the Ctrl key and left-clicking on particular days in the small calendar window in the bottom left corner in order to select or deselect the days.

Schedule in the central panel is divided into hours which are divided according to the value specified in the granularity drop down menu in Calendar preferences.

Calendar events are ordered in a vertical time-line. Each event is colored (see Calendar Properties) and contains the basic information (subject, start time, category, recurrence and reminder settings).

Tip: Zoom in and out by holding Ctrl and using the scroll wheel. The layout of the calendar will expand or condense accordingly.

Toolbar is visible on the top of the application window and it is dynamic, meaning it responds to whatever is being worked on.

Events that last the whole day or span several days are displayed in the upper All-day section of the calendar, before the timed schedule (so that these events don't interfere with the daily schedule).

Tip: When hovering the mouse pointer over an event, a pop up balloon tooltip will appear, showing event details, including subject, location, start & end time and tags. This also works in the week view and month view.

How to reschedule an event

There are two ways to extend or reduce the duration of an event:

  • move the pointer to the upper or lower area of an event so to re-size its length and after the pointer changes its shape

  • double-click a calendar event to open it and change the desired dates and times

Tip:

Use drag-and-drop for:

  • moving an event item to a different time within the same date

  • moving events to a desired date in the small calendar on the left, to change their date. This smart utility is very useful to change the date of the event but keeping the same time schedule

Day view

The day view is the most detailed as it focuses on the shortest period of time.

Week view

All the functions offered in Day View are also available in Week View, the only difference is that the Week View displays one week at a time.

Work week view

To display the schedule for workdays (Monday to Friday), select Work Week view in the calendar's toolbar.

Upcoming view

Filters view to future events, hence, it is only possible to scroll days ahead.

Month view

Displays the events of the entire month.

Events that last less than a single day are ordered the same way as in the other layouts. Daylong and multi-day events are visible before other short events and sorted by their starting time.

Agenda view

This layout does not display events in a calendar but instead in a comprehensible list of events, with each line containing the details of a single event.

By default, events are ordered by their starting dates. Recurring events are listed only once, at the time of their first occurrence.

Figure 58. Agenda view is particularly useful when searching for particular events. It allows to arrange events by different parameters by simply clicking on a column header. (e.g.: Click on the Start column header again to switch between ascending and descending orders).

Customize the List View by right-clicking at the column heading and select Columns configuration.

The Columns dialog appears.

Note:

Hide Past button automatically hides all the events in calendar that are out of date.
