Custom Calendars



Create your own scheduling frequencies with Custom Calendars. This is perfect where the scheduling frequency required doesn't follow a normal pattern. To Access Custom Calendars, go to the Home Tab, then select Custom Calendars.







To create a calendar:


  • Click "New"

  • Type in a name for the new calendar

  • Click the dates you wish scheduling to occur, click on a date again to remove it from the selection

  • Click OK to save and Exit the Calendar


Use the Import and Export buttons to export a calendar, or import a previously created calendar.


Use the "Share" button to send your calendar to ChristianSteven for review.  It will then be placed on our website so that other MARS users can download and use it.


To delete a calendar, select from the list and click "Delete".


Adding a Calendar





Update Schedules: After modifying or adding to an existing calendar, use this button to update all schedule which use this calendar.  The schedules will be updated with the new calendar information.  If this function is not used, the schedules will retain the old calendar information.


Applying a Calendar to a Schedule


In your schedule go to the Schedule section. Clicking on Custom Calendar, select a calendar from the dropdown list.




All schedules in use by a custom calendar are now disabled when the calendar ends. If a user adds more dates to the calendar the option is now available to re-enable all schedules that use the affected calendar.
