New changes to the Salesforce calendar view in Lightning experience make managing your schedule and staying organized easier than ever. Let’s take a deeper look at all the exciting improvements!
Salesforce Calendar Improvements
- Clearer Schedule Overview: You’re now able to see up to 500 events in the calendar view. No more monotonous switching between pages and tabs to get a comprehensive picture of your schedule. Now you can effortlessly plan your day with confidence.
- Preview Events with a Click: Preview event details more conveniently. Click once on an event to see a preview of its information. This change helps prevent accidental expansions, ensuring you stay focused and in control of your calendar. Meanwhile, you can click again if you’re looking for the entire event record.
- Improved Readability and Organization: Say goodbye to event text truncation and
overlapping tiles. Salesforce has enhanced the display of your upcoming meetings and
appointments, allowing for longer event text and properly arranged tiles. This means you
can easily scan and understand your schedule, even when multiple events are happening
- Collaborate with Shared Calendars: Collaborating with your team or managing resources
is now a breeze. You can enable events for up to 50 shared calendars and resources. This
feature is perfect for organizations that need to coordinate schedules across different
teams or departments. Stay connected and ensure everyone is on the same page.
- Fine-Tune Event Timing: Need to reschedule an event? Salesforce has made it more
precise and flexible. Now you can drag events to reschedule them in 15-minute
increments. Whether it’s a last-minute change or a detailed adjustment, you have the
control to make it happen effortlessly.
Seamless Day View Navigation: Easily switch to day view by clicking on a specific
date in the month or week view. It’s never been easier to dive into the details of your
schedule for a particular day.
Effortless Browser Navigation: Use your browser’s back and forward buttons to move
within the calendar. This makes it simple to revisit previous views or actions, allowing
for a smooth and intuitive navigation experience.
Visual Clarity for Past Dates: Past dates are visually distinguished with shaded
coloring. This makes it easy to identify and differentiate past events from upcoming ones,
ensuring you stay focused on what lies ahead.
