Overview

The Year View shows an entire year. Dates with events are color-coded to match the first visible event occurring on the date. Hovering the mouse over a date will show a summary of that date's items, which can include events, tasks, or notes. To navigate to the previous or next year, use the left or right arrow buttons shown at the top of the Year View. Clicking any date in the Year View will cause the other views in the Calendar View to show the clicked date.

Selecting Dates

To select a date, click it. A range of dates can be selected by clicking and dragging. A whole week can be selected by clicking a week number. As dates are selected in the Year View, the other tabs in the Calendar View will automatically update to display the selected date(s). If there are events, tasks, or notes on the selected date, the first item will be also be selected and the Details Pane will update to show information about the item.

Selecting Months

Click a month name to make the month appear in the Month view.

Date Colors

When using the default appearance theme, the current date will be outlined with a gray square and selected dates will be highlighted orange. Dates having one or more visible events, tasks, or notes will have bold date numbers. When the Appearance Option to display dates using event appearances is enabled (the default), dates containing events will be colored to match the appearance of the first event on that date. These colors will also override the orange highlighting for selected dates. Weekend dates will be displayed in black, by default. If you want weekends to be colored differently (such as red), this can be changed via an Appearance Option.

First Day of the Week

The first day of the week will vary depending on your Window's regional settings. For example, in the USA, the first day of the week defaults to Sunday (as shown in the example image above). In the UK, it defaults to Monday. This default setting is a Calendar Option that can be overridden to enable any day to be selected as the first day of the week.

Week Numbering

Week numbers can be displayed or hidden in the Year View via a Calendar Option. Also, two standards for week numbering are supported - Simple Week Numbering and ISO 8601. Simple week numbering will cause the week containing the first day of the year to always be numbered as 1. This is the standard used in the United States. ISO 8601 week numbering will cause the week containing the first Thursday of the year to be numbered as 1. This is the standard used in Europe. The week numbering standard can be selected in the Calendar Options window.

Clicking the "gear" button in the upper-right corner of the Year View will result in a menu appearing where the Year View settings can be modified.
