- Hide/display or re-arrange calendars in the sidebar
Create calendar groups for a quick overlay of multiple grouped calendars and a more organized left side panel. Grouped calendars can either retain their individual colors or display a new, uniform group color when the group is selected in the calendar view.
You can create a group from any existing CalendarAnything calendar. To create a new group, from the calendar view click the My Calendars button on the left panel and select the Calendar Controls option. This opens the Calendars Controls page.
On the bottom left, click the drop down and select Calendar Groups. Click Add Calendar Group to open the Create Group page.
Creating a new group involves three simple steps:
Step 1: Enter a name for the new calendar group. You may choose to display all calendars using a single group color of your choice, or display calendars in their original colors.
Step 2: Select the calendars for the group. This page shows all available calendars based on your user permissions.
Step 3: Restrict visibility. As with standard CalendarAnything calendars, you may specify which Salesforce public groups have access to this calendar group.
Once you have entered the settings for your calendar group, click Save and return to the Calendar Controls page. Click the Go to Calendars button to return to the calendar view.
