See Salesforce Events in a Weekly View

Viewing Salesforce events in Salesforce1 has gotten easier. Events are now available in a weekly view, allowing users to see an event list for a specific day—including previous days—instead of having to scroll through a single list of all events. And it’s now possible to create new events directly from the Events page. (The action bar for Events is available in the Salesforce1 mobile browser app and the Salesforce1 downloadable apps, versions 7.0 and later.)

Tap Events in the Salesforce1 navigation menu to open the new events weekly view.

The events list for the current day (1) displays, using the same sorting rules as in Summer ’14. Events are shown by start time, with all-day and multi-day events displayed at the top of the list.

To see events for a different day, tap a date in the date bar (2). Swipe left on the date bar to see the next week; swipe right to see the previous week. The date bar shows up to four future weeks and four previous weeks.

Note

Salesforce1 mobile browser app users on Windows 8.1 devices can see the current week only.

Same as before, tap an event in a list to open the event record.

Users can create new events (3) and quickly return to the events list for the current day (4).

Notes about Salesforce events in Salesforce1:

  • As in the Summer ’14 release, events lists use the active event compact layout to determine the fields that are displayed for each event. But because events lists are now shown on a day-by-day basis and to make the lists easier to read, each event no longer includes its date or the event icon.

  • Lists now show a maximum of 20 events per day.

  • Lists don’t automatically refresh to show new or edited events. Pulling down on a list refreshes the events for the current day only. The list does automatically refresh if an event is deleted from Salesforce1.

  • The New Event icon icon launches the first create action for events that is in your organization’s global publisher layout. This allows you to override the default New Event action, if desired.
