Here we'll take a quick look at Activity Management:

Activity Management preferences all apply to working with your main Calendar in Redtail. Your options here are:

  • You can set your Default Calendar View to Day, Week or Month.
  • You can set your Default Calendar Start and End Times to your desired times.
  • You can set your Default Calendar Time Slots to 15, 30 or 60 minute slots.
  • Default to Show Completed Activity can be set to Yes or No. If set to Yes, Completed Activities will still show up on your main Calendar. If you set this to No, they will not. You can temporarily override either setting from the Calendar page itself by clicking on Show Completed or Hide Completed in the Actions box.
  • Default to All Day Events can be set to Yes or No. If you set this to Yes, when you create an Activity, it will automatically be set as an All Day Event unless you edit it to reflect a specific time.
  • Default to Show Checklist Tasks can be set to Yes or No. If you set this to Yes, Checklist Tasks assigned to you will show up on your Calendar by default.
  • Default to Show Client Reviews can be set to Yes or No. If you set this to Yes, Client Review dates will show up on your Calendar by default.
  • Default to Show Workflow Tasks can be set to Yes or No. If you set this to Yes, Workflow Steps assigned to you will show up on your Calendar by default.
  • Default to Show Seminars can be set to Yes or No. If you set this to Yes, Seminar Dates will show up on your Calendar by default.
  • Default Activity Type allows you to choose which of your Activity Types will populate that field by default when creating an Activity. Of course you can edit this during the creation process. But, if you find that you most frequently create activities with a Type of Task, setting that as your default Activity Type can save a little time. You can see this post for instructions on how to add new Activity Types to your database.
  • Allow iCal Access provides you with a means of syncing your Redtail Calendar to Google Calendar or your iCal program. You can see this post for instructions on working with iCal.
After making any changes to these options, click Save in the upper right corner of the Activity Management widget and your preferences will be saved.
