My settings allows the user to update the information that displays on the aircraft container. To update these selections click "My Settings" in the right corner of the calendar. When expanded there will be two columns where the user can click and drag the data to "Hide" or "Display". When complete, push the "Save" button to save your preferences. It is important to note that My Settings does not save in the saved searches and will need to be updated by the logged in user to view the needed data.
There are various timeline setting options (5, 7, 10, 14 or 30). This selection determines the number of days the user will see on their calendar. Once selected, if the user clicks the forward or backward arrows the calendar's date range will move forward or backward based on the timeline view selected. For example, if 14 day is selected and the forward arrow is clicked, the calendar will move forward 14 days.
The Today button will automatically adjust the timeline view to the current date. Next to the Today button is a calendar icon that the user is able to click to expand and select a specific start date. Upon saving the user will see their calendar adjust starting with the date the user selected and spanning the number of days based on the timeline view selection. At any point the user is able to reference the date range next to their calendar icon to quickly identify which dates are currently displayed in their calendar.
Saving a Search
The calendar allows a user to save various searches for quick access. To save a search follow these steps:
Set the preferred timeline
Click Filters and set the preferred filters and settings including the view you want to load (5, 7, 10, 14, 30 Day Timeline or Month)
Name the new search, share with other individuals or groups in your organization (if necessary) and click "Save".
Use the drop down to quickly move between different calendar saved searches. If a search is shared with you, there is an icon to the left of the search name to differentiate it.
If the user is saving a search based on a search that was shared with them, then the only option they will have when saving the search is to Create New in the saved search form.
If the user is saving a search based on a search that they created then the user will be able to Edit, Create New, Share Search and/or Delete the search in the saved search form.
Editing an Existing Saved Search
The user is able to edit any saved searches in their saved search list. This can be done by toggling to the Edit button in the saved search form or by toggling to Create New.
If the user selects Edit the existing search is updated with any changes made to the timeline view, filters and/or name of the search. Upon saving this will overwrite the existing search with the new updates made to the timeline view, filters, share search selections and/or title of the search. Any users that the search was shared with will also see the updates within their search.
If the user wants to use an existing search to build a new search off of then they can use the Create New option. This creates a new saved search in the users saved search list. Upon saving any updated timeline view, filters, share search selections and/or title of the search will be saved with the search. If the user tries to save a new search with a name that already exists a warning will display to notify the user, but this does not prevent the user from saving the search and creating a duplicate.
When the user leaves the calendar (scheduling) and then returns, the last calendar display the user viewed will display.
If a user has custom scheduling settings on their profile, the user is not able to save searches. Additionally, the user's aircraft filter is set automatically and is locked from being able to edit.
