In Chronicle, each person, organization, piece of equipment or job has a calendar upon which you can schedule events. Chronicle allows you to view these calendars in different combinations without duplication of the original calendar. So you can create and save as many different Scheduler views as you need. You can even have more than one Scheduler view open at a time and available in the Windows Task Bar, thus making it easy to switch back and forth between different views. For example, you can create a Scheduler view that shows the calendars of your cleaning production group and a different Scheduler view for the water production group. If you have chosen the customization option of a double click to open an employee calendar in a new window, you can view the calendar of an individual in that group.
Mini Calendars: You can select what days to see by using the control key or the shift key and select particular days or a series of days to view. For example, you could select August 3 and September 3 and work with events. Or select Monday, Wednesday Friday to view just those days in a week. The shift key selects all between and the control key selects only those you click on.
Day, Mon-Fri, Week, & Month views: These views all provide multi-day views of the Scheduler from which you can schedule. Mon-Fri is the typical work week. The week view includes Saturday and Sunday. In Customization Options you can customize the 7 day week format to be viewed as either columns or a grid with Sat/Sun combined.
My Calendar: This shows your own calendar.
My Resources: The first time you click on View My Resources in the event panel of the Scheduler, Chronicle will ask you if you want to add a resource to the list, click yes, and you will see the Personnel/Calendar Groups screen to start the list. Or go to Tools drop down on the Scheduler ribbon and start a resource list. You can edit or sort the members of this list. My Resources is a list created by each log in.
Personnel: Using personnel groups you can mix and match employees, subcontractors, and equipment into the same calendar groups for ease of use. These groups must first be created to be available for Scheduler to use. Once the groups are created, others can view them and you can edit or add people and equipment to them from the Edit/Sort Resource Members list.
Department employee: This shows a calendar for each employee associated with the department. You associate employees with departments in the Main System Setup on the Departments tab. See How When this is selected you will see a drop down box.
Employee: You can view the calendar of a specific employee. When this is selected you will see a drop down box.
Whole Company: This lets you see all events that have a department associated with them. This includes events for jobs or departments; it does not include personal events for yourself or others. When this is selected you will see a drop down box.
Dept/division: This view shows you all the events that have been scheduled for the selected department or division. When this is selected you will see a drop down box.
Group by: When viewing a group's calendars, you view by resource first and then dates or view by dates and then resources. You will not see this setting when viewing by My Calendar or by individual Employee.
