Event and Task defaults

Event and Task defaults

Postby appyface » Mon Sep 20, 2010 6:05 pm

Hi Dan,

I really like the ability to customize what the default event flavors and default task will look like, when presented for a create. I'd like to request a few additional fields be configurable? In particular the time fields on the different events and the tasks. These fields don't appear to be saved, I'd prefer to configure mine if possible.

Thank you for your consideration.

Kind regards,

Hi appyface, the default task settings can be configured by double-clicking the "Tasks" item in the calendar list. To define task defaults, click the "Task Defaults" tab. You can't specify a default date/time, but you can specify a default duration, repeat pattern, and reminder(s). Similarly, event defaults can be configured for each calendar by double-clicking the calendar in the list, and then switching to the Event Defaults tab in the Calendar Properties window.

Is that what you're looking for?

Hi Dan,

Sorry no that isn't what I was asking. I am interested in the time fields -- most specifically, the start time field on Tasks. But I would use configurable start/end or start/duration (essentially the same thing) on events if that were available.

Kind regards,

The next version (7.5.0) has been improved to allow default event and task starting times to be specified. A beta of the Pro version is available, if you'd like an early look.
