Calendar

In this article, we're going to take a look at the Calendar page.

The Calendar page contains your account's publishing calendar. You can access the calendar page through the account level menu under Reports.

The calendar will list all items that have at least one workflow status with a due date. Items that don't have any due dates will not be visible including those that have already been published or completed without any set due dates.

The items are color-coded to indicate the expected workflow status they should be for that date. For example, assuming you're using the default workflow statuses, if an article is due for writing on May 15th, it will show up in the publishing calendar in the color purple, the default color for editorial review status.

Clicking on an item in the calendar brings out more information about it. This will show the expected workflow status to be completed by who on that particular date.

Clicking on the item name will bring you to the content editor page for the item itself.

You can also update due dates directly in the calendar through the Manage deadlines link at the bottom of the information window, or just by using Drag & Drop.

The Manage deadlines link brings up another window that will let you change responsible users and due dates.

If you're already familiar with the app, you may have noticed that this is the same window you'll see on other parts of the app when dealing with people and due dates.

Tip: If you want to assign someone to a workflow status but their name doesn't appear when they're supposed to be, check out Why can't I assign a user to a task?
