General Settings – Advanced Settings


Admin Settings

Admin Settings allow for more complex configuration for your calendars. This includes:

For selected Object, move Available fields to Selected to display within Details Popup.

Grouping Fields
For selected Object, limit fields that can be used as Grouping Fields in Swimlane, Gantt, and Day Grouping calendar views.

Custom Grouping
Create and configure grouping that is not found within native Salesforce by creating custom grouping(s) for Swimlane and Day Grouping views.

Use Salesforce Tracking Feed for Objects or manually select Objects to limit Chatter feed on the details popup.

If there are no selected timezones in Admin Settings > Timezone, you will be able to select from all timezones when they are enabled in General Settings. In case there are selected timezones in Admin Settings > Timezone, only those timezones will display as options.

First enable filter panel and filter sets – Settings > General Settings > Advance and select the Display Filter Panel and the Display Filter Sets checkbox.

Then go to the Settings > Admin Settings > Filtering. Select which object you wish to filter by in the Object list.
Then move the desired field from Available to Selected and click Save.
