Best Practices When Using Calendar Views 

InitLive is now Bloomerang Volunteer—a new name, a new look, and a new integration. Bloomerang Volunteer works just like InitLive. You can do everything you always do, and in the same way.

There are 4 major steps you should take when using the Calendar View: "Full Screen", “Filter”, “Take Action” and “Customize Display”.

1. Full Screen 

Entering full-screen mode will always give you the best view of the Schedule. You can achieve this by using the diagonal arrow button in the top left corner.

2. Filter your Data 

The first thing you should be always doing is Filter what information you need. You can “Filter” your list to show only the information needed. For example, if you want to show only the Shifts for a specific Venue or Location.

3. Take Action

Select all the Shift blocks you want to act on. Once you have done this, you can use the “Take Action” button to make the bulk update. For example, a bulk action can be Moving Shifts to a different date. Another way to move the Shifts by date is by using the “drag and drop” feature. 

This is the pop-up screen you will be getting if you are using the “Drag and Drop” function.

Use the Customize Shift Display open to show and hide the information you want to see on the Shift block.
