|Return to Configuration Overview
One of the great features in World Clock and Weather is the flexibility you have in showing weather, forecasts, locations, and/or date/time in the web part display. In this example, Bamboo is showing weather across six areas of the globe and we are also showing the date and time as well as the Country and/or Province for which the weather and date and time are being displayed. For globally diverse enterprises, this is such a useful way to let your users know at a glance the time and weather in another office of your company.
Each section of the weather has characteristics that can be set based on your preferences. We’ve enlarged one location’s weather to show the areas that you can configure.
|Click to set the checkmark on this box which will now display an icon representing the current weather in that location.
|Detailed forecast in:
|Other than None, you also have a choice of forecasts for two, three or five days.
When you choose to show the forecasts, a plus symbol displays on the upper right of the location which will then provide the mechanism to see more days of weather based on your number of days in the forecast.
|Check this box to display the city and state or province.
|Show Date and Time:
|The date and time for that location will display based on the format you select next.
|Date and Time Formats:
|Because there are a variety of ways to display time, Bamboo provides a variety of choices in how you prefer to show the date and time in the web part.
|Update date and time every minute
|This does not appear in the web part; it is a setting on the tool pane you can configure. Just remember that it will use up server resources to update the web part every minute.
|Cache Weather Data
|This setting allows you to cache recently pulled weather data to reduce calls and speed up display of data when the same location is called again.
