Adding some documentation for the new Calendar module
This [[File:Calendar.png]] The Calendar module provides a simple way to create and edit calendar events. Because calendar events are shared with all Fishbowl users, the Calendar module can be used to keep all users up-to-date on important events.  == Layout == The Calendar module has three basic areas: The '''button toolbar''' at the top, the '''navigation pane''' to the left, and the '''viewing area''' in the middle. [[File:Month View.png|700px]] == Views {{top}} == The viewing area can display several calendar views with varying amounts of detail. The view is changed by clicking one of the view buttons located in the button toolbar. [[File:Calendar views.png]] * '''Day''' - Shows events for 1 day, including start and end times.* '''5 Day''' - Shows events for 5 days (Monday - Friday), including start and end times.* '''Week''' - Shows events for 7 days (Sunday - Saturday), including start and end times.* '''Month''' - Shows events for the entire month. == Navigation {{top}} == The dates displayed in the viewing area can be controlled in several ways. * '''Navigation pane'''<br>[[File:Navigation Pane.png]]<br>Clicking a date in the navigation pane will jump to that date in the viewing area. The black arrows at the top of the navigation pane are used to display other years. * '''Today link'''<br>[[File:Today link.png]]<br>Today's date is displayed at the top-right corner of the viewing area. Clicking today's date will jump to today in the viewing area. * '''Navigation arrows'''<br>[[File:Navigation arrows.png]]<br>The navigation arrows are located at the top-left corner of the viewing area. Clicking the arrows will go to the next day, week, or month, depending on which calendar view is currently selected. == Create an event {{top}} == A new calendar event can be created in the following ways: * '''New button''' - Clicking the '''New''' button in the button toolbar will create a new event that defaults to today's date.* '''Keyboard shortcut''' - A calendar event can also be created by simultaneously pressing '''Ctrl''' and '''N''' on the keyboard.* '''Right-click''' - To create an event for a specific date/time, right-click the location in the viewing area where the event should be created and select '''New''' from the context menu.* '''Drag''' - An event can also be created by clicking the start date/time, and while still holding the mouse button down, dragging the mouse to the end date/time. == Event details {{top}} == When a new event is created, the Calendar Module Event dialog window will pop-up. [[File:Calendar event dialog.png]] A calendar event has the following details: * '''Event''' (required) - The name or title of the event.* '''Location''' (optional) - The location where the event will occur.* '''Start Date''' (required) - The starting date/time of the event.* '''End Date''' (required) - The ending date/time of the event.* '''Notes''' (optional) - Any additional information about the event. <span style="color:red">'''Red text'''</span> in the dialog window indicates a required field that still needs to be entered. == Edit an event {{top}} == An event can be edited in the following ways:  * '''Double-click''' - Double-clicking an event allows the event details to be edited in the Calendar Event dialog window.* '''Right-click''' - Right-clicking an event and choosing '''Edit''' will also display the Calendar Event dialog window.* '''Drag''' - An event can be rescheduled for a new date/time by simply clicking and holding the mouse in the middle of event, and dragging the event to a new date/time.* '''Stretch''' - The duration of an event can be adjusted by placing the mouse on the border of an event and stretching the event in either direction. == Delete an event {{top}} == An event is under Constructiondeleted by right-clicking the event, and choosing '''Delete''' from the context menu. == Refresh the calendar {{top}} == The calendar can be refreshed by clicking the '''Refresh''' button in the button toolbar. This will update the calendar with any events that have been created or edited by other Fishbowl users.
