Calendar-Scheduler with Date Navigator
Calendar-Scheduler is a powerful component to visualize tasks. It is composed of two parts: Calendar View and Date Navigator. Each Calendar View has its own layout and printing capabilities. Date Navigator is an easy way to select dates.
In the Day Planner you can see your daily schedule. On the top of the schedule you can find tasks, which do not have time of day defined (i.e."My birthday") while the time line contains tasks where time of day is important.
Work Week Calendar
Layout of the Work Week Calendar is similar to the Day Planner. The difference is - it contains one column for each working day. The column count can be decreased by selecting fewer dates in the Date Navigator.
Week Calendar refers to the whole calendar week. Previous and next week can be accessed with the navigation buttons with arrows in the ribbon over the view.
Month Calendar can contain as many days, as many are selected in the Date Navigator. It is possible to select more than one month at once.
There are 4 different task reports. Each report has a different page layout which depends on the selected task or calendar view. Paper orientation, size, margins, header and footer can be commonly set for all report types in the preview window. Other settings are unique for each report type.
Task List Report
Task list report can print all tasks or only selected ones.
Day Planner Report
Time range shown in the Day Planner Report can be altered if necessary. It is also possible to hide the header, so that the time line can be additionally stretched.

Custom Sound Profiles
There are three sound profiles: Single Sound Profile, Repeated Sound Profile and "Be Quiet
Single Sound Profile is default. However if you are temporarily away from the computer, you could miss the notification message. Then it is better to activate the Repeated Sound Profile. It plays an alarm sound until the "Be Quiet" button on the alarm message is pressed.
On the other hand, if you do not want to be disturbed during the work, you activate the "Be Quiet" Profile and Desktop-Reminder only shows the alarm message but plays no alarm sound.
Option "Profile is limited in time
" helps you to deactivate automatically special profile after it is no more neccessary.
You can choose your own sounds for Single Sound Profile and Repeated Sound Profile in the program options (on the page "Sounds
