In this article, you will learn how to set your calendar preferences.
To access calendar preferences
- Open up your calendar to any view (Today, This Week, etc.)
- Click on the 'Preferences' button in the top-right corner. This will open up the 'Calendar Preferences' pop-up window, as per the screenshot below.
- When you are happy with your settings, click 'Save Preferences' to apply them to the calendar.
Within the 'General' tab, you can set your 'basic' preferences - the default view style (day, week, month), labels, and the length of your standard working day. You can also label the time zone the calendar has been created for, and specify whether you would like to see weekends or public holidays on the calendar.
Within the 'Tasks' tab, you will be able to specify whether or not tasks are displayed on the calendar. If you choose to add tasks to the calendar, you can do so on a user-by-user basis and specify a color for each user. You can also choose to show only incomplete tasks or just all tasks in general, and whether you want to display tasks created from timesheets. By default, tasks will be displayed as all-day appointments.
Within the 'Custom Data' tab, you can choose to auto-create appointments for custom date fields created against each 'System User' or 'Participant Type'. Any custom data collections that use date fields will be displayed and can be checked to create appointments for the said fields.
