Introduction / FirstSpirit ServerManager / Schedule entry planning / Schedule overview

Schedule overview

The schedule overview table contains historic data up to the current date and calculated data for upcoming, active (not manual) schedule entries. Depending on whether the user is in the server properties or the project properties, either only server-based or only project-based schedule entries will be displayed.

Schedule entries within a period of 5 days before the current date and up to 5 days after the current date are displayed by default. The user can choose to display all data from the current week, current month or from a defined period. Initially, a maximum of 40 schedules are displayed. Click "Show more" to load more entries.

Double-clicking on the desired schedule entry opens the schedule details dialog.

Defining the overview period

Options – Week: if this option is selected, all schedule entries are listed that have been or are to be carried out during the current week (Monday through Sunday).

Options – Month: if this option is selected, all schedule entries are listed that have been or are to be carried out during the current month.

Options – from ... to: if this option is selected, all schedule entries are listed that have been or are to be carried out within the defined period. The start and end dates can each be selected by clicking on the calendar icon.

If a new option or a different start or end date has been selected, the selection must be confirmed by clicking on the "View" button. The table will then be updated with the requested data.
