The Action List over Time page format dialogue allows you to format and configure the Action List over Time view to display the content you want to show.
The controls are logically grouped together into various tabs.
The Date Range tab controls the time period over which the Action List over Time shows therefore controlling the number of pages in the view.
The time period (or date width) of the Action List over Time is not the same as that of the Timeline. The view defaults to show the next 8 weeks with 4 weeks to a page, so it starts off two pages wide and as many pages deep as is needed to show the all the Actions, Meetings and Milestones in that time period. The maximum width of the Action List over Time is constrained to be:
The date range dialogue allows you to set the date range for display in the Action List over time in two ways:
The timescale rows tab allows you to select the format for the date rows that are displayed at the top of each of the Action List over Time view pages. Formats can be set separately for the dates in 4 week mode vs 5 or 7 day display mode:
The prefix section lets you pick a prefix for the date format. The available options are:
The Working Week tab allows you choose:
Note: Changes to Working week days and Week start day will apply across all views
The Display Mode tab contains the most important controls over the Action List over Time view allowing you to choose what to display and how it gets grouped and displayed.
The Display Mode section lets you choose the time period per page. There are three options:
Note: you can also select these options from the Action List over Time view toolbar button
In the “Group Information by” section, you can choose:
The "Vertical Ordering" section allows you to choose the order in which the Activity Groups or Contacts get displayed. For Activity Groups there are four options:
For Contacts (Responsibility) you can only select Alphabetical ordering (A-Z, or Z-A)
The Description Font dialogue allows you to set the font, font style and font size for the description column of
Meetings, Milestones and Actions in the Action List over Time.
This allows you to shrink / expand the font size easily to show more / less on the page, and also gives the page a uniform look. It overrides in this view any specific font you may have selected for a Meeting, Milestone or Action in the Action List or Activity Group Detail (whilst leaving those selections unchanged in those views).
The fonts for the left hand column (in blue) can be set using the Group Fonts tab in this same dialogue – see below.
The Group Font tab allows you to set the font, font style and font size for the column in the Action List over Time containing either the Activity Group names or the Contact Names. This column is the blue column on the left hand side of each page in the Action List over Time.
For information about changing the font of the Description text of each of the Meetings, Milestones and Actions in the Action List over Time see the Description Font tab above.
The date format tab allows you to set a format for the dates that appear within the text of the Meetings, Milestones and Actions in the Action List over Time. e.g. you could choose to display Sunday 20th January as "Sun 20 Jan" or "20/01" or etc.
You can also select your locale so that you can get USA or UK date format options.
