Frequently asked questions (FAQ) for calendar

What information can be displayed in the calendar?

The calendar automatically displays the start and end dates of work packages in the current project. Additionally, the start and end dates of versions are shown in the calendar.

Where can I embed / activate the calendar?

To use the calendar in a project, you need to activate the “Calendar” module in the project settings. Afterwards you can access the calendar in the project menu, as well as add it in the project overview. You can also enable the calendar in your “My page” view.

Is there an option to export or sync my calendar (e.g. Outlook)?

You cannot synchronize a personal calendar in Nepenthes. However, you can subscribe to a calendar using an external client that supports the iCalendar format.

You can also use the meeting module in Nepenthes to organize meetings and invite project members. You can export meetings as iCalendar file and import them to your external calendar. If you would like Microsoft Outlook to automatically import calendar invites, please check your Outlook settings and make sure to give permission from that side.
