Modifications to Notes Calendar to allow more slots and possibly year planner view?

Hi,

I am trying to utilise the Notes Calendar in month view to map out where and when our Sales people are in a particular area..  Problem I have is we have more sales people than the monthly calendar can display without the scroll bars coming into action...  ( I would like to be able to accomodate 10 )

Where in the design can I modify this  ( slots per day ) I've looked but the Framset tells me to go to view $Calendar -- but it doesn't look like what i want??  I thought I would just make the text smaller, remove the action buttons etc.   on the design so I can fit more?  I would also like to make Sat and Sun full days  ( instead of both being displayed in together )?  Can anyone point me in the right direction?

It's times like this you look at good ol' Lotus Organizer Planner View -- that was great!! ( has anyone seen something similar for Notes ??? THAT would be ideal ( plus above requirements ;)  !

Thanks again,
Broad.

Start looking in the Calendar Preferences: click on the button Tools, then Preferences, and go to the Calendar&ToDo-tab.

Hi Sjef,

There are no options in Tool Preferences that I can see that assist?

Heh. Yes a screen like that would help!

Tools: you want to set Saturday and Sunday larger? Set them as workday, and look at the One Work Week view.

Oh, OK, I was on monthly view as that is what I was after.. I'll have a look into what happens when those checkboxes are ticked.  Thanks Sjef will look into it today!

I've been searching the web in hope of finding a commercial solution ( Lotus Notes Year Planner )  I can't understand nothings out there!

Sorry, there's also One Work Month view and set Saturday and Sunday as working days.

If you know how to program VB or VBA, you can create some program in VB or an Excel spreadsheet that will show you the perfect calendar. Using the COM interface (LS-like) to Notes, you can do whatever you like. It might be a long way...

I used to have a laptop 800x600 that could emulate 1024x768, you could move the screen wherever you liked. Maybe there's some Windows tool that lets you do that, a virtual screen or some other panning tool?

We utilize a Lotus Notes add-in application called "Department Calendar", from Logic Springs Technologies, which we are very happy with.

I tried a lost of Virtual Desktops myself, but none of them can enhance the desktop to a reasonable size. I also found www.triplus.com with WinSpace, to no avail. Dead end.

Interesting product, TTCTECH!

Hi Sjef & TTCTECH

Firstly sorry for the timelapse! Thanks for all your suggestions & virtual desktop idea ( which came in handy for something else btw  : )  

I was hoping there was a less involved option that I could resolve without outside assistance but this wasn't the case.  I have just used quite a spiffy Excel Planner & Notes Document Library to replicate it around...    IntelliPrint would do the job but the item is not extensively used so cannot justify the cost - although it can do heaps more!

Thanks TTCTECH -- checked out the product good to know its out there!
