CALENDAR : Navigation - 3 & 6 Month View, Drop Down List for Months
Idea shared by Curtis Kropar www.HawaiianHope.org - April 7, 2017 at 5:29 PM
Proposed
Aloha ~~~
 
So, We are using SmarterPeeps, Smarter Mail 14.4xx something right now. Not sure if this has been changed for 15 of 16, if not this would really be helpful.
 
For Calendars : 
1) I would really like to get a 3 month view, and a 6 months view - in addition to Day, Week and Month.  It would make finding available dates for meetings a lot faster.
 
2) In the Monthly View, in order to move ahead like 5 months, I have to click the month arrow and then wait... like 45 seconds for it to change months 1 month forward.  Then click the arrow again, wait again another 45 seconds or so... 5 times (almost 5 minutes waiting) to move 5 months into the future to look at available dates.  It would be so much better if the "months" navigation was a drop down list so i could just click the list, select 5 months into the future and jump directly there. Same if there was a 3 month view as well, to be able to jump maybe 5 months or 8 months int the future, instantly

3/6 Month View options have not been added to the product as of yet. The calendar interface functions like the below image currently:

Thanks Kyle !  Can you please add this request into the mix.  And when i say 3 or 6 month view, i dont mean quarterly. (Jan, Feb, Mar / Apr, May, Jun) I would like 3 months from the month i am in.  So, August, Sept Oct.  

Is that on a tablet ?  Why is the navigation on the top ?  or can you select where the navigation shows up now ?

Curtis, I can definitely update the feature request to include these notes for you. As to the interface differences you're noting, this is in the latest release of SmarterMail and is the current navigation when browsing from a computer. Browsing from mobile has a similar display optimized for mobile viewing.

Yes, Please do..
And is is possible to switch to / pick classic navigation on the side ?
Considering all of these computer monitors are now wide screen, i have plenty of width to work with, i hate wasting valuable verticle space.  If not, that woudl be a suggestion to, give the ability to pick where the navigation is, top or side.

Its not possible to move the navigation bar, but I can submit that for you as well. I do know we have plans to revisit the visual settings in the future and potentially open up new ways to configure these areas, but unfortunately I don't have any official ETA on this. I definitely recommend installing a development/test server (when you have a moment of course!)with the latest release so you can get familiar with the interface, options, behaviors, etc.
