Main section

Section "Workspace"

Each task is assigned to a workspace. You can select the appropriate workspace here. Check Apply Workspace to Subtasks to apply this setting for all subtasks of this task as well.

Section "Tags"

In this section you can assign one or more tags to a task.

Section "Description"

This option allows you to describe the content of this object.

Section "Repeating Event"

If you want to repeat the same event on different dates (like a weekly meeting or a birthday) you can define an event as a repeating event. (This is very similar to defining a repeating task.)

Section "Reminders"

To ensure that people don't forget an event you can define reminders, consisting of e-mail notifications or pop-up alerts. (This is very similar to defining reminders for tasks.)

Choose the type of reminder (E-mail or Pop-up message) and the timeframe (in Minutes, Hours, Days or Weeks). By checking Apply to all subscribers these reminders will be sent not only to the invited people but to all users who have subscribed to this event as well. You can define as many reminders for an event as you like.

Please note: Feng Office will not prevent you from defining several identical reminders.

Section "Custom Properties"

In this section, you will have the option to set your own new properties depending on your needs.

Section "Subscribers"

This section allows you to edit the subscribers options.

Section "Linked Objects"

This section allows you to link objects to a task (and unlink them as well).

Section "Invited People"

This section will let you invite users to this event trough an automatically sent email notification and/or by subscribing them to this event.

Invitations

When you create an event you have to decide which users you want to invite. In addition, you can choose to send invitations by e-mail.

PLEASE NOTE: Which users you are able to invite depends on the workspace the event belongs to.3)

Inviting people has two consequences:

In the Detail View of the event, you will find a list where you can see who has been invited, who will attend and who has declined.

Importing, Exporting, and Synchronizing

Feng Office provides importing and exporting features that support most thrid-party Calendars, and two-way synchronization with Google Calendar.

Importing

In case you would like to import events to Feng Office, you first have to go to the client, project or workspace where you would like to import your events to, and then go to the 'Calendar' tab and select the 'Import' option as shown below:

Import

Then you will be directed to the following page:

Events import form

Lastly you would have to select the file containing your events and click the 'Import' button.

Exporting

If you would like to export your Feng Office events, you would have to go to the ‘Calendar’ tab and click on 'Import/Export' > 'Export' as shown below:

Export

Next screen will be as following:

Events export form

Here you would have to select the date range of the exportation, and a name for the Calendar, and finally click on 'Export'.

This will generate an iCalendar file, which you may import anywhere it is supported.

Google Calendar Synchronization

Feng Office supports (Starting with 2.0) two-ways synchronization with Google Calendar.

Here are the details on how to Synchronize with Google Calendar

While there are reports of adaptations to other calendars ((like Microsoft Outlook, Mozilla Sunbird/Lightning, and Apple iCal) these are still not part of the Standard Feng Office Editions.

1) There has been a list view for events in Feng Office versions before 1.0, but it's not available anymore.
3) Due to a bug this is not true for Feng Office 1.0 - see here for details.
