When you open the calendar, it will automatically display the current day, week, or month, depending on the default view that you have configured in your calendar settings. There are a range of options within the calendar that allow you to quickly jump to the date you need, and display:

Old vs New Calendar

The very first time you log into your AroFlo site and access the calendar, you will be viewing the Old Calendar. The instructions below relate to the New Calendar, which was introduced in March 2020. To switch from the Old to the New, click New Calendar. This option will be removed in time, and only the New Calendar will exist.

 

The table below describes the navigation available within the AroFlo calendar.

Once you've created some views, this button will show the name of the selected view. For example:

Allows you to configure and save a range of calendar  views  for different areas of your business. For example, you may have a Staff view, a Contractors view, and an Assets view, or you may have a different view for each business unit.

Altering the calendar settings without saving them to a view will mean that when you navigate away from the calendar, your changes will not be kept. To keep your settings, you must either create a view to save them in, or edit an existing view. See Save a calendar view.
