Calendar Window

Use the Calendar Window submenu (from the View menu) to manipulate the Calendar Window to:

To change the month you are viewing forward or back a month at a time, press the UpArrow or DownArrow key (or click the up or down arrows on the right edge of the date picker).

To change the year you are viewing, press the PgUp key (or click the space above the slider on the right edge of the date picker) to move backward a year, or press the PgDn key (or the the space below the slider) to move forward a year. You can view years from 1987 through 2068.

To change to the current month and year, press the Home key.

Today's date appears in bold.

If you click a date on the Calendar Window, the viewed schedule will change to displaying the schedule for that date.


How to use the Calendar Window to quickly move an item to a different date: Highlight the item in the viewed schedule, then right-click on a Calendar Window date to cause the currently highlighted item in the viewed schedule to be moved to that calendar date (as well as have its earliest begin date changed to that date). TimeTo™ will warn you if you are moving an item with a fluid date past its due date and give you the option to proceed (and have the deadline changed to that date) or leave the item on its original date. (Alternatively, you can change the Earliest Begin and Deadline dates afterward, using the Modify Item command.)

To change the size of the Calendar Window, click-and-drag any corner of it with your mouse. Tip: When docked, the easiest way to resize both the calendar and the view window at once is to drag the bottom left corner of the Calendar.

To change the number of weeks displayed on the Calendar Window, choose Show x Weeks In Calendar Window (in Other Settings) and choose between 1 and 9 weeks. This also affects the date picker on all date fields in the same way.

Tip: If you would like the Calendar Window to show weeks spanning from Monday to Sunday rather than from Sunday to Saturday, check the Weeks Start Mon (instead of Sun) checkbox in Other Settings.

These further customizing commands appear on the Calendar submenu (from the View menu):

Display Calendar Window: Display the Calendar.

Hide Calendar Window: Hide the Calendar.

Docked: Toggle between having the Calendar Window docked to the right of the viewed schedule (thus the width of your viewed schedule will be determined by the width of your docked Calendar Window), or having it float freely so that you can position it anywhere you'd like. (The size and location of the Calendar Window is saved whenever a schedule changes. To retain positioning between sessions when changes have not been made, choose Save from the File menu.)

Darken Busier Days: Enable this feature to cause dates of the current month and the next month on the Calendar Window (and the date picker) to have tinted backgrounds that indicate how full they are. Days with no items are gray. Days with items range in color from green through deep red depending on how full they are:

The percentage full is the ratio of the total time for all unfiltered items on the day to the total hours available in your day according to your Day Bounds Settings (for today, only the remaining hours are considered available).

Don't Darken Busier Days: Turn off the Darken Busier Days feature described above.

4-4-5 Mode: In a 4-4-5 calendar, the number of weeks in each month of each quarter is forced to 4, 4, and 5 weeks respectively, in order to standardize planning and accounting. This command is only available if 4-4-5 Calendar Support is checked in Other Settings (from the Settings menu). Toggle between 4-4-5 calendar display (which shows the first full week of the month) or normal calendar display. This affects both the Calendar Window and the date picker available on date input fields.

Note for users of non-English versions of Microsoft Windows: TimeTo™ is compatible with all languages supported by Microsoft Windows (including right-to-left alphabets Arabic and Hebrew). However, TimeTo™ is shipped with fonts defaulted to Scripts set to "Western", and so you are using Windows in a language that does use the "Western" script, you should change the Script setting of every Fonts Setting to match the language of your region. For instance, if you are using a non-English version of Microsoft Windows (for instance, Greek, Polish or other Eastern European languages) or a font designed for a non-Roman alphabet (such as Arabic), you may find that item titles on schedule views or the headings in the Calendar windows and 31-Day Busy Navigator are unreadable until you set the Script setting in each of your fonts in Fonts Settings to an appropriate language. In the unlikely case that that doesn't solve the problem, then change each of the four screen fonts settings to one of these fonts: Courier, MS Serif or MS Sans Serif (not Microsoft Serif or Microsoft Sans Serif). For complete details on how to regionalize TimeTo™ please read the help topic How To Customize TimeTo For My Region.
