ProcedureTo View Calendars: User Interface

  1. While still logged in as Duncan, in the Communications Express UI, click the Calendar tab.

    When you first select the Calendar tab, your default calendar is displayed in the default view. You can later select a calendar from the Current Calendar drop-down list to view and create events and tasks. The Current Calendar drop-down list may include personal calendars, subscribed calendars, calendar groups, and temporary virtual calendars. For the selected calendar, you can see events and tasks in traditional or object oriented views that include the Day View, Week View, Month View, Year view, Tasks View, Events View, and Invitations View.

    In the Day View, the main calendar view displays a color-coded appointment for group events. The green box indicates the number of invitees who have confirmed the appointment, the yellow box indicates the number who have tentatively accepted, and the red box indicates the number who have declined the invitation. The grey box indicates the number who have not yet responded to the invitation.

    At the bottom of the Calendar tab, Duncan's calendar is: Every calendar has its own unique URL that you can send to other users. If you give users permission to view your calendar, they can view it by using this URL.

    Above this URL is the quick-event feature that enables you to create an event with a minimal set of attributes such as event title, date, and time. This feature is ideal for creating non-recurring events with no attendees.

  2. Click the Week view, located as a sub-tab of the Calendar tab.

    Examine the events in the calendar for the week.

  3. To view other calendars, select a calendar from the Current Calendar drop-down menu.

    Since you haven't yet subscribed to or created additional calendars, you do not see many calendars in this list. However, after you subscribe to or create new calendars, you are able to select and view them.

    You can view the calendars of other individuals provided that you have their permission. For example, if you had previously subscribed to Kathy's or Robert's calendar, select or to view their calendars.

  4. Continue with the next task.
