Events Calendar Overview

Siebel eEvents Manager for Finance allows individuals to manage an events calendar and synchronize sessions with their personal calendar, where the sessions appear as activities. This section provides an overview of the relationships between the events calendar and personal calendar, as well as providing information about events calendar browser requirements and icons.

Events Calendar and Personal Calendar Relationships

The following list provides information about the differences and relationships that exist between the events calendar and the personal calendar:

Events Calendar Browser Requirements

The person viewing the events calendar needs to use a high-interactivity browser. A high-interactivity browser supports real time updates to the user interface. For instance, when you drag a column divider to change column width, a high-interactivity browser displays your changes in real time. This functionality is particularly important in the events calendar and persistent filters, in which case using a low-interactivity browser results in an incomplete screen display.

NOTE:  High-interactivity browsers include Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher.

Events Calendar Icons

The events calendar displays icons that represent the status of a subevent. If a subevent is canceled, newly created, and so on, an icon appears next to it. You can configure which icon is associated with which event type by modifying the GetAppropriateIcon function in the script applet_event_hi_calendar_applet.js.

Table 6 describes typical icons that appear on the events calendar to represent a subevent status.
