Navigate the service calendar (Customer Service)

In the Service calendar, you can do the following tasks and activities:

  • View your organization's daily, weekly, and monthly schedule of appointments and service activities.

  • View work schedules and service activity schedules for a variety of resources.

  • Create new appointments and schedule service activities.

  • Change the status of an existing service activity.

  • Search for conflicts in the schedule.

You can’t customize the Service calendar or change the default view with the application. However, you can ask your system administrator to change the colors of the time blocks.

  1. Go to Service > Service Calendar.

  2. A list of resources is displayed on the left side of the calendar in alphabetical order. To view the resources, appointments, and service activities for anyone in your organization, in the Type list, select Resource, and then in the View list select the resource view.

  3. To find a specific resource, in the Search box, enter the first few letters of a name.
