Events and Custom Calendars

To bring new calendar on board, activecollab Team spent tons of hours and we were following this, to incorporate all events from different modules in one place that it was not possible before.

Following modules add custom calendars or events into global calendar with ability to change it:

  • Recurring Tasks – this module will add all recurring templates of tasks into project calendars;
  • HR Manager – all events that are displayed in People-HR Manager calendar, can now be seen on global calendar marked with it’s own color. On People-HR Manager this color is inherited from event color managed in administration area, but global calendar will get colors of that calendar managed when you click on “Edit” next to it;
  • Easy CRM – adds all communications with all users managed at User Profile-Contacts. Of course, users will see only their communications, related to them. Also all dates to remember assigned to users are displayed in calendar;
  • ToDos – you can now also view them in calendar. Only todos with dates and/or time are displayed there set by and to user.

As you can see from the screen above, each calendar has it’s own colors, and can be switched on or off to get better vision and define which events you are interested in, that makes your work more productive.
