To choose a calendar

The My Calendar window is a monthly planner to help you better schedule your time--and remember where you’re supposed to be.

The Clients & Profits calendar is an online planning tool for both individual staff members and the company as a whole. It is designed to help you easily add, edit, and prioritize your daily activities (as well as those for different departments and the company itself), planning months into the future.

The calendars are universal, so everybody in your shop who uses Clients & Profits can share them.

When the calendar window opens, it displays each day's entries. Clicking on a day opens the Day-at-a-Glance window, which shows the day's entries in more detail.

To choose a calendar

1 Choose My > My Calendar to open the My Calendar window.

The My Calendar window opens.

2 Choose a calendar from the Show pop-up menu.

The Calendar window will display the month's entries for each day of the month. Since the space available for each day of the month is limited, you'll see an abbreviated version of each calendar entry.

When the Company Calendar is chosen from the Show pop-up menu, the calendar will include days that staff members have scheduled time-off.

Click the previous month and next month buttons to see different months.

To jump to a specific day, enter the date in the Find Date field then click the Find button. The calendar will display the selected month's entries.

To see a calendar's daily entries

Clicking on any day in the Calendar window opens the Day-at-a-Glance window, which shows the day's entries in more detail. You can also add new entries from this window.

With color-coded priorities, time, location, client, and status information, you will be able to easily see where you need to be, what you need to do, and where you can squeeze more into your day.

Using the tool bar buttons, to-do entries can be added with just a few mouse-clicks.

The media department can use this window which lists due dates and times for materials and space closings, along with any meetings, events, etc. scheduled that day for Media Department personnel during the chosen month. Space closing deadlines from media plans and estimates, and materials due dates from insertion orders and broadcast orders automatically appear on the Day-at-a-Glance Calendar. Media staff are also able to record and manage all upcoming meetings, events, and other media related work for any day during any given month. It keeps everyone in your media department informed about what’s happening, when it’s due, and more.

To add a new daily calendar entry

1 Choose the calendar you wish to use using the calendar pop-up menu.

2 Click the add button.

3 Enter the date and time of the new event.

While Clients & Profits will automatically fill in the current date and time, you can change it to any future date and any time. Time is entered using a 24-hour clock (i.e., military time), but will appear as AM or PM on a 12-hour clock.

4 Enter the event’s location.

5 Enter a descriptive name on the Action/Event field.

The event name appears on the calendar as well as in the Day-at-a-Glance window, so make sure it is meaningful.

6 Enter a description for the event.

The description field is free-form and can hold an unlimited number of characters. Remember that the description appears on the printed Day-at-a-Glance calendar, so brevity is good.

7 Assign a priority for the entry.

Daily events can be prioritized as high, normal, or low, and appear as color-coded dots in the Day-at-a-Glance window. Priorities, as well as any other information, can be edited at any time.

8 Enter the days in advance you would like to receive an e-mail reminder about the upcoming event.

Clients & Profits will automatically send you an e-mail message on the morning you’ve requested a notification.

9 Enter the client code if the meeting is in regard to a particular client.

10 Enter the event status, such as “tentative” or “confirmed.”

11 Click Save.

To edit a calendar entry

1 Click the edit button.

2 Make your changes.

3 Click Save.

To delete a calendar entry

1 From the Day-at-a-Glance window, click the action or event to select it.

2 Click the delete button.

To print a calendar

Clicking the Print Calendar button prints a hard-copy of the calendar that's currently being displayed.

There are seven different calendars to choose from:

Personal
Shows only the calendar entries you added personally. You can only see your own personal calendar's entries. Also, you can't add personal entries for other staff members. (Remember, there should be no expectation of privacy on your personal calendar since it is stored on company property.)

Company
Shows calendar entries that affect the entire company, such as holidays, events, or announcements. Entries added to the company calendar are public, so everyone will see them.

Client
Shows appointments, dates, and other calendar entries for one selected client. Client calendar entries can be added by anyone in the company.

Traffic
Shows calendar entries that involve production that are added by the traffic department.

Media
Shows space closing and material due dates from insertion and broadcast orders, as well as entries added by members of the media department.

Accounting
Shows important dates (e.g., tax payments, rent due, etc.) added by members of the accounting department.

Cash
Shows expected client payments (using the A/R invoice's pay date) and planned cash disbursements (using the A/P invoice's pay date) as well as manually added entries added by the accounting department to manage cash.

Depending on your access privileges, you can see and add entries to one or more of the calendars. Calendar entries can only be added once a type of calendar (i.e., personal, media, etc.) is chosen and displayed.
