Notes:


Using the calendar


The calendar displays the current month by default and is used to indicate the due date of Notes added to a project and project significant events. Clicking on a date with a blue dot displays the event list and projects for that date:     

 

  • You can scroll to the previous or next month using the arrows at the top of the calendar.
  • Days marked with a blue dot indicate project activity that may be of interest to you, based on your account settings.
  • Below the calendar is a list of project events for the next several days. Each entry includes the project name, time and type of the event.
  • Clicking on the project entry opens the details page for the project. 

For more information, see the section Match, Task List and Notes in the topic Understanding the project details page.   


Understanding the Activity Snapshot

 The Activity Snapshot is a view-only display of the individual counts for your account activity for the Task List sections. You can view the counts for different time periods by clicking the arrows at the top of the section.
