My Calendar

My Calendar is a personal view for your working calendar that helps you quickly view your important dates such as due dates for Tickets, expiration dates of Software Licenses or Contracts, or return dates for leased Computers, and your personal events such as days off and other exceptions to your regular working time. You can also add, modify, and delete your personal events right on your calendar. My Calendar is personal, i.e. it is available only for you.

To access My Calendar, select Service Desk > My Calendar from the navigation menu. You can view the calendar information by day, by week, or by month. For details, see Changing Calendar views.

NOTE: To refresh the calendar, press F5.

Hiding calendar events

Displaying many events may litter your calendar and slow down the performance. You can temporary hide the events that are not critical for you now, and display them again, when needed.

The Calendar Events pane under Filter by, in the right side bar, shows descriptions of all events that your calendar can currently display. To hide an event, clear the corresponding check box. To enable the event again, select its check box.
