The reservation calendar is the primary interface for browsing, creating, editing and canceling reservations. The calendar interface has two components: 1) the day picker, 2) the day view

Calendar Settings

Enable calendar features using the Server Settings / Calendar menu. You may specify:

  • Detailed Reservations - include reservation comments on the calendar bar (good for small number of resources)
  • Row Height (new calendar only) - specify the default height of the calendar row. Content that cannot be displayed within the calendar row will appear with scroll bars.
  • New Calendar - enable the new calendar features. This setting is in place to provide backward compatibility with Internet Explorer 11.

The calendar features show here are new as of November, 2018 and require a modern browser version: Chrome,
Firefox, Safari, MS Edge. Internet Explorer 11 is not supported. If you and your customers are using IE11 or older, disable the new calendar setting.
