Modifying the Dates and Zoom

You are here:

This section explains how users can modify the time period and time scale visible in the Graphical Scheduler.

Definition: The “Dates and Zoom” action allows users to modify the time period that is visible in the Graphical Scheduler along with the time scale. Any change to the time period and/or time scale is user specific and every time the Graphical Scheduler is loaded, the time period and time scale will revert to the default values configured in the view of the Graphical Scheduler. If the user selects another view, this will reset the parameters of the “Dates and Zoom” action.

How to access

  1. Navigate to the “Graphical Scheduler” page.
  2. Click on the “Dates and Zoom” action

Note

When the setting “Filter Mode” is set to “Filter Box”, the “Dates and Zoom” action is not accessible from the Graphical Scheduler. Instead, a “Filters” box is added at the top of the Graphical Scheduler page and will list all of the fields related to the “Dates and Zoom” action in this box. Likewise, when the setting is set to “Box and Actions”, the “Filters” box will be present at the top of the page and the “Dates and Zoom” action will also be accessible in this scenario. See the “Modifying the Graphical Scheduler Settings” section in this document for more information.
