Overview

The Week View shows a single week. The currently displayed week will be shown at the top of the Week View, with left and right arrow buttons for navigating to the previous or next week. The displayed week can also be selected from the Navigation Pane or any of the other tabs in the Calendar View.

Week View Layout

The Week View supports two different layouts. The first layout shows days as columns with timeslots, similar to the Day view. The second layout shows a 3x2 grid, where each day is a rectangle and its events are shown in the order they occur. The preferred layout can be selected from the Week View Settings menu, which can be accessed by clicking the "gear" button in the upper-right corner of the view.

Show Days in Columns

When the "Show Days in Columns" option is checked, the Week View will appear as shown in the example below.

Here are some notes regarding the column layout mode:

  • Events that have starting and ending times are displayed within their time slots.
  • Events that last all day or span multiple days are displayed in the day header area. Up to 14 all-day events can be displayed at the same time. There is no limit to the number of non all-day events that can be displayed in a single day.
  • Non all-day events that overlap with each other are displayed side-by-side in their associated time slots. 
  • Time slots that are outside the working hours defined in the Calendar Options will be shaded gray.

Show Days in Grid

When the "Show Days in Grid" option is checked, the Week View will appear as shown in the example below.

Here are some notes regarding the grid layout mode:

  • If more events are present in a day than will fit in the available space, an arrow indicator will be displayed at the bottom of the day. Clicking this indicator will activate the Day View.
  • Depending on the available space, event ending times and locations will appear. If space is limited, these may be suppressed to allow more room for event titles.
  • The starting day in the upper-left corner will match the first day of the week specified in the Calendar Options, except if that day is Saturday or Sunday, since those days are compressed.

Week View Settings - Column Layout Mode

Additional settings are available when in column layout mode. These settings aren't applicable when in grid layout mode.

Entire Week

When this option is selected, 7 columns will be shown for an entire week. The width of each column will be the same and there is no way to adjust some day columns to be wider than others. If you don't schedule events on weekends, and your monitor space is limited, try the Weekdays or Work Days settings instead.

Weekdays

Only Monday through Friday will be shown.

Work Days

Only days that are marked as work days in the Calendar Options will be shown.

Timeslot Length

The displayed timeslot length can be adjusted between 1 and 60 minutes. The default timeslot length is 30 minutes. Selecting a larger timeslot length could reduce scrolling, but will also limit the amount of space available for event titles and descriptions.

The timeslot length can be adjusted between 1 and 60 minutes.

View in Overlay Mode

When viewing in overlay mode, all calendars will be merged into a single view. In other words, each date will be shown only once, and if multiple events belonging to multiple calendars exist within those dates, the events will be overlaid in the day. When overlay mode is disabled, each visible calendar will be displayed in separate columns within the same date.

Show Description/Details

When this option is checked and enough space is available, descriptions and details will appear in the event blocks. This option can be unchecked if your workplace requires this information to be hidden (i.e., HIPAA regulations), or if you want to keep details of events away from prying eyes.
