Managing appointments in your other calendars just got a lot easier in Daylite on your iPhone or iPad! Before, you could only edit appointments from other calendars, but now you can create new ones altogether. Create new appointments in Google, Exchange, Yahoo, or iCloud calendars from within Daylite with this new update for iPhone and iPad.
This means that now you can:
- Create appointments in your other calendars from within Daylite
- Change appointments from other calendars into Daylite appointments
- Move Daylite appointments into other calendars
How to Start Managing Appointments on iPhone or iPad
To start managing appointments in other calendars on your iPhone or iPad, you need to turn on the setting that allows them to appear in your Daylite.
- Open Daylite on your iPhone or iPad
- Go to Settings at the bottom of the Home tab
- Go to Calendar
- Turn on the first option, “Show other calendars in Daylite”
Creating appointments in other calendars within Daylite
Let’s say you need to set up a meeting with an external contractor who does not use Daylite and with whom you share a Google Calendar to keep track of project deadlines.
When creating a new appointment on your iPhone or iPad, you will notice we have added a new “calendar” field. By default, the calendar will be set to Daylite, but you can use that field to select which calendar you would like to create the appointment in.
Changing appointments from other calendars into Daylite appointments
We all love the Daylite calendar for its linking capabilities and easy visibility with your team. Now, you can convert existing events from your other calendars into Daylite appointments, so you can link contacts and create tasks from them.
When you open the appointment you would like to convert, tap “Change to Daylite Appointment” below the event’s details. Once you do that, you can start linking contacts, adding files, and performing all your other favourite Daylite functions.
Note that, once you convert it, the original appointment will disappear from your other calendar, and any files or URL’s will be lost. For this reason, we recommend saving any attachments or URL’s you might need before converting your appointments.
Moving Daylite appointments into other calendars
What if you created a Daylite appointment, but now realize you need it in your shared Google calendar, so an external contractor – or anyone you want – can see it? Now you can also easily move existing appointments from Daylite into other calendars.
All you have to do is open the appointment you want to move, tap “Edit” in the top right corner, then tap the “calendar” field and select a calendar.
You can’t change the calendar if…
It will not be possible to change external appointments into Daylite ones, and vice versa, if:
- You’re not the owner of the appointment;
- The appointment is “read-only”;
- The appointment is repeating (ex. Weekly, monthly, etc.);
- You’re editing an appointment that has linked items;
- The appointment has other invitees.
