Overview

The Calendar tab of the Options Window allows you to specify work day options and general calendar settings.
The options window.

Work Day Options

Work day options

  • Each day of the week can have its own work schedule specified independently of other days.
  • The work day options will affect the display of the Day and Week, views which shade working hours differently than non-working hours. It will also affect the Daily print style.
  • If a day is usually a work day, check the Work Day box. This will allow the work starting and ending times to be specified.
  • The start and end times are the times that you normally start and end working on the associated day.
  • You can type in any start/end time or select one from a drop-down list.

Calendar Options

The calendar options.

Show Tooltips in the Calendar View

  • When this option is enabled, event tooltips will be displayed in the Calendar View and Desktop Calendar.
  • If the "Show event descriptions in tooltips" box is checked, the tooltips will include event descriptions, including special formatting like embedded pictures.
  • The following is an example of a tooltip when the option to show descriptions in tooltips is enabled:

Prompt to Confirm Item Deletion

  • When deleting an item, such as an event or calendar, VueMinder will prompt to confirm the deletion, by default. For example, when deleting an event, the following message will be displayed.
    Before deleting an event, the program will ask you to confirm.
  • This prompt can be disabled by unchecking the "Prompt to confirm item deletion" box.
  • If you check the "Don't ask me again" box in the confirmation dialog, and later change your mind and want to see this dialog before deleting items, it can be re-enabled via the checkbox in the Calendar Options window.

Show Week Numbers

Week numbers, using either Simple Week Numbering or ISO 8601, can be displayed.

  • When enabled, this option will result in week numbers (1-53) being displayed in the week header area of the Month View, Date Navigation Pane, and Desktop Calendar.
  • Week numbers in the Month View will only be visible if the "Show Week Header" option in the Month View Settings menu is enabled.
  • 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.
  • Here's an example of how the Month View looks when week numbers are enabled:

  • When the showing of week numbers has been disabled, the Month View will appear as below:
    Example when week numbers are not shown.

First Day of the Week

The first day of the week option.

  • The first day of the week will default to match your regional settings defined in Windows.
  • For example, in the USA, the first day of the week is Sunday, while in the UK, it's Monday.
  • If you prefer a different first day of the week, you can select it from the drop-down list.
  • This will affect the left-most day that is displayed in the Navigation Pane, Week View, Month View, and Desktop Calendar.
  • It will also affect the Monthly print style.

Reminder Date/Time Format

  • By default, the date and time format that is shown the Popup Reminder Window will use a long and descriptive format, based on your Windows regional settings.
  • For example, in the United States, this will result in date/time strings having a format like "Sunday, November 23, 2008 6:20 PM", while in the United Kingdom it would be "23 November 2008 18:20".
  • If you prefer a shorter date/time be displayed, or if you prefer a format (and language) that matches what is used in the United States, you can select a different option from the drop-down list.
  • Example formats based on the current date and time will be displayed for you to select from.
  • Here's an example of the available date time formats when running in Brazil:

Occurrence Numbering

  • When occurrence numbering is enabled for a recurring event, in the Recurrence tab of the Event Editor, the occurrence numbers will be shown as (#1, #2, #3, ...) or (1st, 2nd, 3rd, ...), depending on which numbering format is selected.

Upcoming Events

  • The number of days used for listing Upcoming Events on the Desktop Calendar can be adjusted. Try a lower number if the program seems slow.
  • A checkbox allows completed events to be shown or hidden from the Upcoming Events list on the Desktop Calendar.

Internet Time Server

  • When syncing with Google Calendar, an internet time server is used to ensure the timestamps of items in Google Calendar are correct in relation to your computer's locally configured time. This ensures changes are properly detected and synced.
  • The default time server is "time-a.nist.gov". If necessary, a different time server can be typed in or selected from the drop-down list.
  • A list of time servers provided by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) can be found here.
