Using calendar view

Alica Kačengová

Calendar view is useful for displaying data which represent tasks or events.

Configuring the view

  1. Basic settings

First, you need to choose the attributes with the name of the events and a date when the events start.

  1. Setting end date

You can also set up an end date for an event, but it is not required.

Instead of an exact end date, you can also choose an attribute of type duration. The end date is then calculated from the start date plus the duration.

  1. Setting event color

To set event color, choose any attribute of type color or selection.

  1. Saving position

If you want to save your custom view with the current position in the calendar (e.g. May 2020), tick the checkbox. 

Otherwise, the view will always open with the position set to the current day.

  1. Grouping the items

If you need to have multiple groups of parallel events in the calendar, set the value of the Group field to the column you want to group events by. Every column in the calendar then represents one group.

Grouping is available only in weekly and monthly view.

Changing level of detail

  1. Month/week/day

You can switch between monthly, weekly or daily calendar in the top left corner.

  1. Calendar/list

You can also switch between calendar and list view.

Working with the data

  1. Editing existing records

To enter record (event) detail and edit its values, click on the event in the calendar. 

  1. Rescheduling

To change the event date, simply drag and drop it to the new position.

  1. Adding new records

Double click on any empty space in the calendar.
