After we have finished upgrading your GroupCalendar to CRM 2013, it is highly recommended to perform the following steps to ensure full compatibility.
The GroupCalendar side pane (which holds the view settings etc.) is per default unpinned. With a manual user-based setting it is possible to change the default behavior so that the GroupCalendar is opened with a pinned side pane.
This article outlines the features of TOPDOWN view, which are available for GroupCalendar (GC) version 5.55 and higher (click here to download the latest GC version). En detail, this article explains, how you:
Change the user and time, by drag and drop
Create and save an appointment directly in CRM, by double-click into the selected time-slot
Delete activities directly
See all details of activities (multiple row able)
Create an activity by just clicking right into your selected time-slot
Right-click into your activities to open, delete or copy them
Change between the views show 24 hours and show business hours. Business hours-view is preset from 08:00-17:00 and also configurable.
Determine how many minutes a time-slot should have (in general 30 min.)
If you want to change the date format of GroupCalendar, you only have to change the Culture-Info.
The Culture-Info represents information about a specific culture including the names of the culture, the writing system, and the calendar used, as well as access to culture-specific objects that provide information for common operations, such as formatting dates and sorting strings.
