The calendar shows all data records that relate to a date. The calendar offers two different views: single week or single month.
a) Activates the calendar.
b) Switches to the month view (see below).
c) Activates the weekly view.
d) Use the arrows to switch between weeks.
e) By default the week view shows only the five general working days. However, you can switch to a seven-day view or display only one day in detail.
f) When ‘Only working hours’ is activated, the calendar shows only the time from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., otherwise it is the whole 24 hours.
g) The first line in the calendar view shows the events that last the whole day (e.g. birthday, due date). If you have set table columns to the data type ‘Date’ and defined that they are displayed in the calendar, this is where the corresponding records appear.
h) Data records that include appointments (data type ‘Appointment’) are shown according to their start and end time. Just tap on an entry to open it.
You can also create new entries in the week view: Tap on an empty area to enter an appointment at that time. That only works, if you have at least one column with the data type ‘appointment’ in any table.
In the following dialogue you can set the time precisely. Now tap on one of the table names displayed to create the corresponding data record.
In the monthly view appointments and date entries are displayed uniformly.
a) Activates the month view.
b) Use arrows to switch between months.
c) The current date has a blue background, Saturdays are light yellow and Sundays are light red. At this point, holidays are not marked and can’t be configured.
d) Tap on an entry to open it.
How to Define Date Fields and Appointment Fields
You have to create date fields or appointment fields in one of your tables to be able to work with the calendar. For date fields these are your options:
- Show in calendar: defines, if the data records of this table are displayed in the calendar.
- With color: determines which color is used to display the data records. Use this option to be able to distinguish different entries quickly.
- Anniversary: makes it possible to repeat an event each year, especially birthdays. Choose ‘Yes’ and the entry is displayed on that day independently of the year.
