As the name suggests, it's a calendar. "My Calendar". More precisely, this is a versatile calendar control, fully (smart) responsive, visualizing your activities.
We'll skip the description of the trivial calendar functionality- how you can navigate between the months, how the today's date is marked, etc... We'll just show you the essentials.
This is the main goal of the calendar in the ERP.net Web Client.
It will show in a convenient way all your activities. This way you can see them in a convenient, natural way, without the need to open navigators, apply filters, etc.
Also you can create a new activity. Just click on the "Create" button:
Fill in the required fields, save it and you're done. The new activity will appear on the day for which it's planned.
The calendar app supports different view types. You can switch between them from the app's panel settings.
When you choose the new type of view, the changes will take effect immediately.
The default view type. Self-explanatory, shows the days of the selected month, alignining the raster with the days of the previous and next, graying them out.
An alternative view, showing the five days of the selected work week as columns. The working time will be visualized on the vertical axis.
Why smart? Because it doesn't just scale to the size of your screen, but it takes into account how you really could use it, according the size of your screen.
If your screen doesn't show a large area (e.g., your mobile), then the so-called responsiveness comes.
That's the monthly view on a mobile. Yes, it's not just scaled, it's a different layout to fit your needs. The activities are shown as "dots" and now you have agenda. Click (more specifically "touch") on a day and the agenda will show your activities as a list.
Additionally, you may notice that the calendar's toolbar is refactored. Now you have header and footer toolbars.
Mobile touch gestures support
Mobile touch gestures are also supported. You can swipe left or right on your screen and as a result, you will move the calendar backward or forward.
I am a widget
This is not something new for a "My app", but rather a key functionality. You can add a calendar wherever you want as a widget panel.
My Calendar as an inline control
My Calendar is also present as an inline control anywhere in ERP.net Web Client where you need to enter a date.
Here's an example when creating a new activity where you need to set the document's date.
In addition to date, time input is also supported.
The calendar will automatically allow time input when the property you're editing requires it. As in the example from above - when specifying the date and time for a reminder in to do task.
Here's what the same control looks like, but in mobile view:
Of course, sometimes you only need to enter an exact time. The calendar will adapt and display only the time:
The time seletion in the control is presented as a list of convenient predefined times:
- 10:00 / Morning
- 12:30 / Lunch
- 14:00 / Early afternoon
- 16:00 / Late afternoon
- 19:00 / Dinner
If you want to set another time, you can do it manually via the input at the bottom.
Customizing time presets
It's also possible to completely redefine the time presets to suit your needs.
This can be done via the global configuration options via the key
When this key has value, conforming to the format below, it overrides the default time presets.
