Calendar Settings

SmarterMail gives you several customized settings for how you want your calendars to appear. This includes the default calendar you want to view, the default timeframe to display, the location you want to use for displaying weather forecasts and more.

To view your calendar settings, click the settings icon. Then exapnd the My Settings and Advanced Settings Folder and click Caledar Settings in the navigation pane. The calendar settings will load in the content pane and the following tabs will be available:

Options

Use this tab to specify the following settings:

  • Default Calendar View - To specify the default calendar view (daily, weekly, monthly, or all appointments), select the appropriate option from the list.
  • Default Calendar - If you have any Shared Calendars, you can select that as the default calendar you use. By default, this is set to My Calendar, or your personal calendar.
  • Calendar Auto Clean - SmarterMail allows you to keep past calendar events from cluttering up your calendar views. Generally domain administrators will set this option for all users of the domain. However, if you have the ability to set your own auto-clean parameters, you can do so with this setting.
  • Enable display of weekends in the weekly view - Select this option to set the weekly calendar view to include the weekends. As some people only use their calendars for the "business week," disabling weekends can futher keep the calendard clean and organized.
  • Enable display of weekends in the monthly view - Select this option to set the weekly calendar view to include the weekends.

Tasks

When a task is created, it will generally have start and end dates and times associated with it. Therefore, this setting allows you to display tasks on your calendar. Note: Even though tasks may be set to display in your calendar, if you are syncing your calendar with a desktop and/or mobile email client the task will not show up on your calendar. Instead, they will generally be considered notifications and will display in mobile and/or desktop clients accordingly.

Use this tab to specify the following task-related settings:

  • Enable display of task start times in the calendar view - Select this option to view the date and time a task is scheduled to start on the calendar.
  • Enable display of task due times in the calendar view - Select this option to view the date and time a task is scheduled to be completed on the calendar.
  • Disable display of completed tasks - Select this option to remove completed tasks from the calendar view.

Weather

U.S. users can view the 7-day weather forecast in their area, or any area they choose, on their calendar. To enable this option, type your postal code in the appropriate filed and select the Enable weather checkbox. Weather forecasts are provided by the National Weather Service.

Visible Hours

SmarterMail users can use this tab to customize their calendar to display their typical hours. For example, if you typically schedule appointments from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., you can configure the visible hours to correspond with those times. Users can also configure the visible hours for each day of the week to allow for flexibility in your schedule.
