The “Calendar” configuration option allows certain users to schedule and post issue-related, informational and “Out of Office” events on a shared Calendar within your site’s interface.
Issue-related events are displayed on both the Calendar and issue record. These items generally include an assigned user or Group, as well as Email Notifications and a Reminder to the assignee. Informational items (e.g. staff meetings, planned outages, company holidays, audits, etc.) are displayed only on the Calendar and generally do not include an assignee, Notifications or Reminder.
Out of Office events (e.g. vacations, off-site appointments, etc.) are displayed on the Calendar and all Assigned To, Next Action and Task Assigned To popup lists () from an issue record. For example:
All of a user’s Pre-Defined Assignments (i.e. through any Auto Assignments, Quick Picks, Recurring Issues or Escalation Rules) and/or Email Notifications may also be automatically re-routed to a different user or Group during an Out of Office event.
NOTE: Only users with “Calendar” permissions can see the Calendar menu. Only users with “Can view issues submitted by other users” can see events added by other users or assigned to other users. “Internal Only” membership filters based on user Organization and/or Department also apply.
