Easier Scheduling for People & Resources

See how Daylite makes scheduling for people and resources easier with the Separate by User and Resource view in Daylite!




Scheduling appointments for people and resources

  1. From the Users & Resources Calendar click on the Users & Resources bar next to the gear icon and select all of the users and/or resources for you which you wish to schedule an appointment.
    Alt text
  2. Click on the gear icon to select ‘Separate by User or Resource’ and ‘Color by User or Resource’.
  3. In the day, week or month view each user’s and resource’s appointments will be color-coded. In the day or week view, a column will appear for each user and/or resource selected, allowing you to see availability at a glance.

Scheduling for a single user or resource

Notice how the colors for each user line up with the legend at the top to make it as easy as possible for you to schedule for the correct person.

  1. Click and drag a small area under one of the columns. A colored bar appears for the chosen time frame and a new appointment window opens with the selected User or Resource added as an invitee. If you drag for an appointment under the Everyone column then all of the selected Users and/or Resources are added as invitees. Double-clicking in the relevant column will also bring up the appointment creation window for the selected user or resource.
  2. Enter the appropriate information. Click Save.

Note : The user creating the record owns the appointment in case they need to review the details or make changes in case someone declines.


From the week view

  1. Click and drag a small area under one of the columns. A colored bar appears for the chosen time frame and a new appointment window opens with the selected User or Resource added as an invitee.

  2. Enter the appropriate information. Click Save.
