Configure how calendar entries look

To configure how calendar entries appear for a table, add calendar_elements attributes to the System Dictionary entry for that table.

  1. Open a form for any record in that table.
  2. Right-click the form header and select Configure > Dictionary.
  3. In the record list that appears, select the first record that does not have a value in the Column name field.
    Reports calendar attributes
  4. Switch the Dictionary Entry form to the Advanced view.
  5. In the Attributes field, add calendar_elements=<field name>;<field name>, listing the fields you want to appear in each entry of your calendar report, separated by semi-colons.
    Note: When you define attributes for calendar elements, you replace the default display elements of number and short_description with the attributes that you list in this field. To add any additional attributes to the calendar entry and retain the number and short description of the change, you must include the number and short_description fields in your attributes. For example, to add risk level information to your change calendar, add the following attribute to the change_request table:
    calendar_elements=number;short_description;risk
    Reports calendar attributes
  6. If the table already has an attribute, separate it from the new attribute you are adding with a comma, as in this example:
    update_synch=true,calendar_elements=number;short_description;risk
  7. Click Update.
    Note: If a calendar entry has a duration, it includes parenthetical information to indicate how many days since the event started and how many days until the event ends. For example, the parenthetical information included for the "CHG0000005 - Install new PBX ( -2 to +2)" entry indicates that the change started 2 days ago and has 2 days left until the end date. The start or end time might also show up here on the start day and end day of the change. To remove the information, add a property named glide.ui.calendar.include_duration_info and set its value to false.
