Defining business calendars

You can define a new business calendar using the Add Calendar page.
To define a business calendar:
1. In the Calendar List page, click Add Calendar.
The Add Calendar page appears and has General, Working Time and Non-working Time sections.
Note: If you want to use a predefined business calendar as a template for the business calendars you want to create, then see Opening the default OEBPS calendar. For limitations on Business Calendars, see Business calendar restrictions.
2. In the General section, enter relevant data, as explained below:
a. Specify a name and description for the business calendar in the Name and Description boxes respectively.
You should not use the following special characters in the name or description while defining a calendar: <, >, ‘, ", %, ;, +, \, and |.

The Name, Description, and Time Zone fields are required.
