- Calendar view is a special view in OmniPlan…that allows you to work on and edit…the calendar parameters for your project.…So no great surprises there.…But I do want to show you some things…just about the way this view works and thinks…so that we can effectively put it to use.…So here I am in calendar view.…If you're not there, go ahead and click over…with the button on the top left.…And the first thing to notice about calendar view…is in the center where you normally see…the gap chart in task view,…what you have instead is a weekly calendar.…
And the next thing I want to point out is…that this works in a drag and drop gooey fashion…that we are pretty familiar with calendars working.…So what I mean is: if I go to one of these blocks,…which is our normal morning hours,…you see I can drag to move that.…I can also drag on the edges, so if you are starting earlier…in the morning, you see I'm changing…the size of the block there,…and I can drag the other edge.…So if we don't work on Fridays,…or Friday mornings, or I guess…
