Priority List

The priority list shows all the currently defined priority types. The selected priority will be indicated with an arrow. To select a different priority type, click its row in the list. After selecting a priority type, its name and appearance can be modified. You can also add or delete priority types using the Add and Delete buttons. There can be a maximum of 10 priority types defined. The number in front of the priority name indicates the priority level, with 1 being the highest and 10 the lowest. Priority types can be moved up or down in the list by clicking the Move Up or Move Down buttons.

Adding Priority Types

If fewer than 10 priority types have been defined, a new priority type can be added by clicking the "Add" button. The new priority type will be inserted into the list and the "Priority name" field activated to enable naming of the new priority type.

Deleting Priority Types

To delete a priority, click its name in the list and then click the Delete button. If the deleted priority type is associated with any events or tasks, the association will be removed.

Note, the "None" priority type is a special case, used for events or tasks that have no associated priority. It cannot be deleted, but it can be renamed or its appearance changed.

Modifying Existing Priority Types

An existing priority type can be renamed or its appearance changed. To do this, click the priority type in the list. Next, enter the new priority name or desired appearance using the appearance editor.
