Preferences for the calendar

Information about the different settings that you can do for your calendar on your account.

At Preferences > Calendar you decide how you want your Calendar to appear and how activities should be managed.


  • Select the default view of your Calendar: monthly, weekly, daily, as a list or schedule.
  • Set which day your week should start with.
  • Decide if your appointments should be set as public or private by default. (You can always modify this when creating a new Calendar.) When you receive Calendar invitations, they are marked as public if you have chosen public here. When private is selected, invitations will be marked as private instead.
  • Choose if you want your mini Calendar to be visible or not.
  • Decide if the week number should be visible.
  • Choose whether received invitations should be added to your Calendar automatically. If this option is selected, you can accept invitations from both e-mails and from your Calendar. If you haven’t selected this option you can only accept invitations by e-mail.
  • Enable if you want to delegate your Calendar for an Apple iCal CalDAV client.
  • Select whether e-mailed invitations should be removed when you have answered it.
