Select columns to display in a tooltip when users mouse-over an item in the calendar. Select columns in the Available Columns list and use the arrow buttons to move them to the Selected Columns list. Use the up and down arrow buttons to reorder selected columns. To select multiple columns at once, hold down the SHIFT or CTRL keys.

Color-Code Calendar Events

Action Result
Choose a column to base event color-coding on, and then select a color to use as the border color for each possible event type (determined by the column you just selected). For example, if you choose to color-code your events by “Status”, and you set the color for “Free” to blue, all events with Free status will be displayed with a blue border on the Calendar. Click Auto Select to automatically assign a unique color for each choice. 0002.jpg

Select an Event Duration Option

Action Result

Select how to display the event duration on the calendar, and the date/time fields used to determine the event start and/or end time.

  • To display events on only the start or end date of the event, select the Events defined by option and select either the start date or end date field from the list. For Exchange events, event duration is usually defined by the Start Time and End Time fields.
  • To display an event on the calendar for its entire duration, select the Interval of events defined as option and select the start date and end date fields in the Between and And lists.

Your Exchange calendar is now configured.
