<title>Introduction</title>

<para>&korganizer; is an intuitive and easy to use personal information manager
(<abbrev>PIM</abbrev>). You can schedule appointments, events, create
to-dos and write journal entries. &korganizer; will remind you about
pending tasks, record your occurrences, experiences, and reflections and help
you keep your schedule.</para>

<para>But &korganizer; is not only about your personal calendar, it can
help you to interact with your colleagues and friends too. With &korganizer;,
you can publish a calendar as a web page, invite anyone with an email address
to an event and process responses, share a calendar (using a groupware
server or simply a file over the network), and share events (&eg;
the schedule of a championship or a conference), using the get hot new stuff
framework. &korganizer; is based on open standards, and works with
many different group scheduling servers, giving you the control over your
information and the freedom to choose the best solutions.
</para>

<para>&korganizer; is also the calendar, journal and to-do component of
&kontact;, offering you an integrated solution for your
communication and information management needs: email, notes, contacts
management, news reader and news feeds
reader.  Even if you do not use it inside &kontact;, &korganizer; is
integrated with the other &kde; <acronym>PIM</acronym> applications.
For instance, you can configure it to show birthdays from &kaddressbook; in your
agenda, use &kmail; to send and receive invitations, &etc;</para>

<title>Five-minute Fly-over Course of &korganizer;</title>
<subtitle> (for the experienced and for the impatient)</subtitle>

<para>Pressed for time? Let's get you kick-started with a fast, hands-on overview
of &korganizer;!</para>

<para>If you ever worked with a personal information program before, you'll be
right at home with &korganizer;. You can enter new events, reschedule existing
events, assign categories to your events, devise new categories, enter and
modify lists of attendees and their roles, email event invitations
automatically and exchange data with other &korganizer; calendars, create
to-dos and write journal entries.</para>

<para>This course assumes that you know how to work with the &kde;, and that
you prefer to explore on your own. Only the basic functions of &korganizer;
are covered here.</para>

<title>Importing, Exporting, and Managing Calendars</title>

<para>&korganizer; can store (and retrieve) events, journal entries
and to-dos using various methods, and to different locations.
Each of these locations is called a <firstterm>calendar resource</firstterm>.
</para>

<para>&korganizer; supports calendar files based on standards such as
iCalendar and vCalendar natively (adding them as new resources), but you can
import the data (merge) into an existing resource and open the file in a new
window too. Importing files in the format used by the old
<application>ical</application> application is also supported.</para>

<para>You can export your data as a web page, as an iCalendar or
vCalendar file. These files are supported by most scheduling applications.
The web page can be used to publish your calendar and to-do list on the
web or on the local network.</para>

<para>In this chapter, we will explain how to manage your calendar, using the
resources, import and export actions and the get hot new stuff scheme.</para>

as its default resource. But this is not your only option: there are several
other resources you can add: groupware servers, journal entries as blogs,
network files, &etc; If you use more than one resource, &korganizer;
<link linkend="config-main-general-personal">can be configured to use the default
resource or ask which resource to use</link> when saving new events, to-dos or
journal entries. &korganizer; will seamlessly merge the items from
two or more resources in the <link linkend="description-view">views</link>.
</para>

<para>The default resource is a good choice for many use cases, but you may
want to use another resource, especially if you use a supported groupware
server. Please ask the server administrator for the information required to
configure the groupware resource, including free/busy information publishing
and retrieving. Access to free/busy information allows an event organizer to
take the attendee's calendar into consideration when adding him to the event's
attendee list.</para>

<note><para>Besides calendar storage, groupware servers typically offer contacts,
mail and <link linkend="glossary" endterm="gloss-freebusy">free/busy
information</link> storage. Therefore, some of the resources discussed here
may be related to other resources from &kmail; and &kaddressbook; (the mail and
contacts components of &kontact;), or to the
<link linkend="config-main-free-busy">free/busy settings in the main
configuration</link>.</para>
<para>Please note that &korganizer;
<link linkend="group-scheduling">group scheduling</link> communication is
based on a peer to peer email standard. This means that you do not need a
groupware server to use it!</para></note>

<title>Importing, Exporting and Maintaining Calendars</title>

<para>While local files are just one among many other resources that can be used
by &korganizer;, they are the most convenient way to share calendars, save
copies, or import items from your old calendar program.</para>

<sect2 id="managing-import">
<title>Importing Calendars</title>

<para>If you have an iCalendar or vCalendar file, and you
would like to import it, choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu>
<guisubmenu>Import</guisubmenu><guimenuitem>Import Calendar...</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item. &korganizer; will ask you if you want to <guilabel>Add as new
506
calendar</guilabel>, which adds the calendar file as a new local file resource or
507
<guilabel>Merge into existing calendar</guilabel>, which merges the calendar
508

<para>A good time to do this would be if you received a
vCalendar with a few entries via email, for instance, or if you are planning
to import your calendar from another application. In the latter case, the first
thing to do is to use that application to export the calendar data in one of the
formats above, or use a tool to convert from the application's native format.</para>

<para>If you have used <application>ical</application>, a popular but
older calendar program for &UNIX;, you may wish to <action>import your events,
journal entries, and to-dos</action> directly to &korganizer;. To do so, choose the
<menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu><guisubmenu>Import</guisubmenu>
<guimenuitem>Import From &UNIX; Ical Tool</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item.
This action will read the <filename class="extension">.calendar</filename> file from your home
folder and merge any entries it contains into your current calendar.
If any errors or suspicious things occur during the process, you will be
notified via a message box.</para>

<sect2 id="managing-export">
<title>Exporting Calendars</title>

<para>You can export your data as a web page, or as an iCalendar or
vCalendar file, which are supported by most scheduling applications.
The web page can be used to publish your calendar and to-do list on the
web or on the local network. Either way, &korganizer; will export all calendar
items from the enabled (checked) resources which are
<link linkend="filters-view">not filtered out</link> (let's call these items
<quote>active</quote> items). In other words, if you cannot see a calendar
item, it won't be in the exported file. To filter out the undesired items
before exporting them, you can create
<link linkend="filters-view">filters</link>. Filters are even more effective
if you classify your events and to-dos in
<link linkend="categories-view">categories</link>. To enable and disable
resources, check or uncheck the resource box in the
<link linkend="managing-resources"><guilabel>Calendar Manager</guilabel> </link>
sidebar.</para>

<para>To export all your <quote>active</quote> events, to-dos and journal entries
(independent of to what resource they belong) as a new iCalendar
file, choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu><guisubmenu>Export</guisubmenu>
<guimenuitem>Export as iCalendar...</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item. To export the same
data as a new vCalendar file choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu>
<guisubmenu>Export</guisubmenu> <guimenuitem>Export as vCalendar...</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item. The <guilabel>Save As</guilabel> dialog will pop up.
Enter the file name and location for the new file to complete the export
action.</para>

<para>You can export your calendar or a part of it as an &HTML;
file, suitable for publishing on the web. Anyone with access to this file,
using a web browser, will be able to view it. This is an easy way to share
calendar information with your colleagues and friends.</para>

<title>Maintaining Your Calendars</title>


<para>Contemporary computers have ample storage space. However, if you
 synchronize your &korganizer; calendar with a limited-memory machine like the
 Palm device, you will find archiving useful. The performance of &korganizer;
 can also become worse when there are many events. To archive old
items, follow the procedure below:</para>

<procedure>
<step><para>Choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu><guimenuitem>Archive
Old Entries...</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item.</para></step>
<step><para>Fill in the date in <guilabel>Archive now items older than</guilabel> field or
use the Calendar Widget to choose the date. Alternatively, you can automatically
archive all items older than a certain period of time.</para></step>
<step><para>If you have chosen archiving, you must also provide a filename for
the archive in the <guilabel>Archive File</guilabel> field. If you want to
re-use an older archive file, press the <guilabel>Open file dialog</guilabel> button
and find an existing archive. The entries will be added to the file,
so any item already in the file will not be modified.</para></step>
</procedure>

<para>Archiving will keep all old items in a file, including completed
to-dos. But if you do not want to keep completed to-dos at all, choose the
<menuchoice><guimenu>File</guimenu><guimenuitem>Purge Completed To-dos</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item to remove all the completed to-dos from your
active resources. If you want to keep your completed to-dos, but
do not wish to view them in the to-do lists, consider
<link linkend="filters-view">filtering them out</link> instead of purging them.

<title>Views and Filters</title>

<para>While calendars (resources) can hold events, to-dos and/or journal
entries, these items are very different in nature. To-dos may have no
date associated with them, so a schedule view is not suitable to them.
Journal entries are a collection your reflections, occurrences or experiences.
They require their own view mode, as they are not related
with the list of upcoming events or the list of to-dos, &etc;</para>

<para>To solve the challenge of displaying your information in a useful and
intuitive fashion, &korganizer; offers different views, filters and search
capabilities. You can also assign related events and to-dos to
categories, which will help you to view them later, using filters or
colors.</para>

<sect1 id="description-view">
<title>&korganizer; Views</title>

<para>In this section, we describe the different view modes, and present an
overview of how to browse your personal data using &korganizer;.</para>

<para>The &korganizer; window can be divided into two main areas: the
main window and the sidebar. The main window displays the main views and the
sidebar displays the Date Navigator, the
To-do View, the Item Viewer and the Calendar Manager View. To show or hide the
sidebar components, check or uncheck the menu items under the
<menuchoice><guimenu>Settings</guimenu>
<guisubmenu>Sidebar</guisubmenu></menuchoice> submenu.</para>

<para>The Date Navigator is provided to browse and select dates. Today's date
will be outlined with a small box, dates which have events scheduled on them
will be bold (daily or weekly recurring events may not be marked as bold,
<link linkend="config-main-views">depending on the view configuration</link>),
and holidays will be colored red. If you want to jump to a date, simply click
on it. Hold down the mouse to select multiple contiguous dates at once.
The <guilabel>What's Next</guilabel>,
<guilabel>List</guilabel>, <guilabel>Agenda</guilabel> and
<guilabel>Journal</guilabel> views will only show events, to-dos or
journals items from the dates selected in the Date Navigator. The
<guilabel>Month</guilabel> view will show events or to-dos from the first
month shown in the Date Navigator (the selected days in the month won't change
the Month view, only month changes).</para>

<para>The To-do View sidebar component lists your to-dos, just like the
<link linkend="todo-view">To-do view</link>. It is useful if you want
to see your to-dos while using the other views.</para>

<para>The Item Viewer sidebar component shows details of the currently selected
events, to-dos or journal entries.</para>

<para>Finally, Calendar Manager Viewer sidebar component allow you to enable or
disable the resources on the list, by checking or unchecking the resource
box, and to manage your resources. For more information, please check
<xref linkend="managing-resources" />.</para>

<para>You can also browse your calendar view by choosing
the <menuchoice><guimenu>Go</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>Backward</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item (or pressing the
<inlinemediaobject><imageobject><imagedata fileref="go-previous.png"
format="PNG"/></imageobject></inlinemediaobject>toolbar button), which goes to
the previous day, week, month or year, choosing the <menuchoice><guimenu>
Go</guimenu><guimenuitem>Forward</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item (or
pressing the <inlinemediaobject><imageobject>
<imagedata fileref="go-next.png"  format="PNG"/></imageobject>
</inlinemediaobject>toolbar button), which goes to
the next day, week, month or year (depending on the view), or choosing the
<menuchoice><guimenu>Go</guimenu><guimenuitem>To Today</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item (or pressing the <inlinemediaobject><imageobject>
<imagedata fileref="go-jump-today.png" format="PNG"/></imageobject>
</inlinemediaobject>toolbar button), which will include the current day in the
current view.</para>

<sect2 id="whatsnext-view">
<title>What's Next View</title>

<para>This view displays events and to-dos in a simple format you can
quickly read. All open to-dos will be displayed, but only the events from
the days selected in the <guilabel>Date Navigator</guilabel> sidebar will be
shown. Events and to-dos are displayed one per line.</para>

<para>Switch to the What's Next view by choosing the
<menuchoice><guimenu>View</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>What's Next</guimenuitem></menuchoice>
menu item.</para>

</sect2>

<sect2 id="list-view">
<title>Event List View</title>
<para>This view displays all your to-dos, events and journal entries for
the dates selected in the Date Navigator as a list. Open to-dos that are
not due on the selected dates are not shown. This view is good for displaying
many different items in a compact fashion. It is also useful if your
events are spread out over a long time period that would not be displayed
completely on the screen when using one of the other views.</para>

<para>The items are displayed one per line. Columns show if a reminder is set
(a bell icon displayed in it means the reminder is set),  if it repeats multiple
times (a chasing-arrows icon means a repeating event), the start and end time
information. Hovering the mouse over an item will bring up a
tooltip with detailed information about the item.</para>

<para>Switch the display to the list view by choosing the
<menuchoice><guimenu>View</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>Event List</guimenuitem></menuchoice>
menu item.</para>


</sect2>

<sect2 id="agenda-view">
<title>Agenda View</title>

<!--TODO: add agenda view options, color of resources and categories-->

<para>The Agenda view presents your events or due to-dos for one or more days,
sorted chronologically. You can also see the length of each event in the day
timetable. To enable the Agenda view choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>View</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>Agenda</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item or press the
<inlinemediaobject><imageobject><imagedata fileref="view-calendar-agenda.png"
format="PNG"/></imageobject></inlinemediaobject>toolbar button.</para>
<para>The <guilabel>Day</guilabel>, <guilabel>Work Week</guilabel> and
<guilabel>Week</guilabel> views are variations of the Agenda view.
In fact, you can set the days shown in the Agenda view at any time by selecting
them in the Date Navigator.</para>
<!--check bell + chasing-arrows icon here-->
<para>Time is indicated by a time bar on the left side of the view. A scrollbar
on the right is provided when the whole day cannot be displayed on a single
screen (which is the usual case). Each rectangle in the view represents an
individual event or to-do due for that time, and displays the start and end time
and summary. A <guiicon>bell</guiicon> icon is displayed if a reminder is set, and
a <guiicon>chasing-arrows</guiicon> icon is displayed if it repeats multiple
times. Hovering the mouse over an calendar item will bring up a tooltip
with the item detailed information. To make &korganizer; show a red line
marking the current-time on the current day (the Marcus Bains line),
check the <guilabel>Show current-time (Marcus Bains) line</guilabel> box in the
<link linkend="config-main-views">&korganizer; view
configuration</link>.</para>

<para>Any event can be re-sized with your mouse. Simply move the mouse pointer
near the top or bottom edge of the event, and drag the edge up or
down. This way you can visually modify the starting and ending time of your
event. This also works in the Week and Work Week views. In other words, it
is possible to change start and end times with the mouse by just moving the
upper or lower border of the event to the new time.</para>

<para>Any event can be rescheduled with your mouse. Move the mouse pointer over
the event, and drag it to a new time location. This also works in the Week and
Work Week views. Events can be moved to other, presently non-visible dates.
Move the mouse pointer over the event, and drag it to the Date Navigator.</para>

<para>Since the Agenda view cannot contain the whole day on most screens, you
will have to scroll up and down to see the whole day. There is a useful hint that
tells you if there are any currently invisible events above or below your current
view; it is a small down-pointing arrow at the bottom  of each day view or
up-pointing arrow at the top.</para>

<tip><para>There are two useful shortcuts for adding events:

<itemizedlist>
<listitem><para>Double-click any
open region of time, and &korganizer; will automatically create an event with
default duration (which is customizable in the preferences dialog).
You can immediately add the title. The events <quote>snap</quote> to
half-hour increments, rounding off to the closest half hour from where you
clicked.</para></listitem>
<listitem><para>Select any open region of time, and double click it or start
writing the title of the event.  &korganizer; will automatically set the
duration and start time as defined by the selection area in the Agenda
view.</para></listitem>
</itemizedlist>
</para></tip>

<para>To help you organize your agenda, the color of the events reflect their
category, and depending on the <link linkend="config-main-views">&korganizer;
view configuration</link>, it may also reflect its
<link linkend="managing-resources">resource</link>. Therefore, if you assign
<link linkend="categories-view">categories to events</link> and
<link linkend="config-main-colors">different colors to categories</link> , you
will be able to quickly identify the type of event by its color.
</para>

<para>
The Agenda view can display events from all your calendars merged into one view or
show a view per calendar. Having both views available via tabs is also possible and
can be <link linkend="config-main-views">customized in the preferences dialog</link>.

<!--TODO: add month view options-->

<para>The Month view shows all the events and due to-dos for the current
month in a familiar month calendar layout. Each cell in the view
represents a day, and each day contains all of the events that can fit in the
area provided (maximizing the window will enable you to see more appointments).
Information on repeating and reminder status is indicated through
<guiicon>bell</guiicon> and <guiicon>chasing arrows</guiicon> icons, just as
in other views.</para>

<para>Navigate the Month view using the Date Navigator arrows,
or the items and toolbar buttons from the <guilabel>Go</guilabel> menu.
Since the visible area of a day cell may not contain all events and
to-dos, you can use the keyboard to browse the items, or you
can use the scrollbars to see all the events and to-dos from that day.</para>

<para>Hover your mouse over any calendar item to display a tooltip with the
item details. Double click an empty area to create an event, double
click any calendar item to edit it.</para>

<para>To help you organize your data, the color of the events may
reflect their category, and its <link linkend="managing-resources">resource</link>,
depending on the <link linkend="config-main-views">&korganizer;
view configuration</link>. Therefore, if you assign
<link linkend="categories-view">categories to events</link> and

<para>To make a new to-do entry, right click the To-do View sidebar component,

a large to-do like building a house, and make sub-to-dos like choosing the
right building site, hiring an architect, hiring workers and finally arranging

<quote>PUBLIC</quote>, <quote>PRIVATE</quote> or <quote>CONFIDENTIAL</quote>.
However, whether these settings are really used to restrict the access of the
information depends on the client and/or groupware server implementation.</para>
<warning><para>Currently, &korganizer; <emphasis>will</emphasis> display
items owned by other people and marked as confidential. Other
clients may treat them differently, but be careful when publishing private or
confidential events: vCalendar and iCalendar are text files, and can be read
with any text editor (if someone has read access to them). So if you want to
keep items really confidential, make sure you use a resource that
only you can access.</para></warning></listitem>

busy or free in that particular time. If the attendees make their free /
busy information available, you can view here their schedule before

represents one of the attendees, listed on the left. The marked areas on the
chart represent the time already taken by other events, unmarked areas represent
time free from other events. You can move the event to a different point in time
by dragging it with the mouse, or resize it by moving the edges of the highlighted
area with the mouse.</para>

<para>The free/busy information is only available if the
attendee publishes his free/busy schedule, and if &korganizer; is correctly
configured to retrieve it. For more information about configuring &korganizer;
to publish and retrieve free/busy information, please check the

<title>Group Scheduling</title>

<para>The group schedule functionality of &korganizer; allows you to
organize appointments, meetings and shared to-do items, request responses
from attendees and publish items. If you are being invited to an event or
to-do, you can reply to it, stating if you will be able to attend, or send a
counter proposal, with different arrangements, like a different time or
location. You can also publish your free/busy schedule, to let people know when
you are available, and request the same information from others.</para>

<para>Currently, &korganizer; schedules events and to-dos using email to
transport the data, in a standards based scheme, the IMIP-protocol for group
scheduling. Being a standard, IMIP is a used by many other clients too. For
example &Microsoft;<application>Outlook</application>, Lotus
<application>Notes</application> and Novell
<application>Evolution</application>. This means that you can share
events with other users using one of these clients.
&korganizer; is integrated with &kmail; for receiving, processing, and sending
events, event responses, updates, cancellations, &etc; For instance, when you
get an invitation in &kmail;, and decide to
accept it, by clicking the <guilabel>accept</guilabel> link in the mail
body, the event is added to your calendar, and a response to the event's
organizer is sent automatically.</para>


<!--TODO: check if to-dos work or not.-->
<!--TODO: check what happens if you counter without this option on.-->

<para>If you check the <guilabel>Use Groupware Communication</guilabel> box
in the <link linkend="config-main-groupscheduling">&korganizer; group
scheduling configuration</link>, &korganizer; will handle the group scheduling
communication for you. In other words, you will seldom need to use the
<guimenu>Schedule</guimenu> menu directly to perform the scheduling actions.
For instance, if you <link linkend="entering-data-events">create an
event or to-do</link> with attendees, &korganizer; will ask you if you want to send the
invitations to the attendees, so you will not need to use the <menuchoice>
<guimenu>Schedule</guimenu><guimenuitem>Send Invitation to Attendees</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item later. Also, if you change your status as an attendee
for an event you were invited to, it will ask you if you want to send your updated
status to the event's organizer, so you will not need to use the <menuchoice>
<guimenu>Schedule</guimenu><guimenuitem>Send Status Update</guimenuitem>
</menuchoice> menu item later.</para>



<sect1 id="publish">
<title>Publishing an Event, To-do or Journal Entry</title>

<para>If you simply want to send an event, to-do or journal entry, choose the
<menuchoice><guimenu>Schedule</guimenu><guimenuitem>Publish
Item Information...</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item, when the item is
selected. Then a dialog appears, asking you the email addresses which will
receive the event or to-do. The item will be sent by email, in the iCalendar
format.</para>

<para>Please note that you can use this action to email any item to
anyone, not just to the item's attendees. In fact, you can publish an item with no
attendees at all, as publishing does not request an answer from the
attendees.</para>

<para>
An example: you are playing in a band and, from time to time, you
give live concerts. To notify your fans about the concerts, you maintain
a mailing list. If you use &korganizer; to organize your concert dates,
you can just choose the <menuchoice><guimenu>Schedule</guimenu>
<guimenuitem>Publish Item Information...</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item,
put in the address of the mailing list and the event gets sent. Mailing
list subscribers who use &korganizer; get the concert date automatically
inserted in their calendar.
</para>

<para>Publishing an event as described above will only inform the receiver about
the event, but not give her the option to ask for attendance. Use
<menuchoice><guimenu>Schedule</guimenu><guimenuitem>Send as iCalendar...</guimenuitem></menuchoice>
if you want to provide that option instead.

<para>To organize an event or to-do,

&korganizer; and add all the people that should attend using the
attendees tab. &korganizer; can send invitations to the
attendees, either automatically (depending on

choosing the <menuchoice><guimenu>Schedule</guimenu><guimenuitem>Send Invitation
to Attendees</guimenuitem></menuchoice> menu item.
The attendees get an email containing all the relevant information
for the event or to-do. They can respond to the meeting proposal by accepting or
rejecting it or by making a counter proposal. They can also delegate or forward the
invitation.
All this information is sent to you by email again and, if you have configured &kmail;
appropriately, the attendees responses are automatically inserted in your calendar.
If there are additional attendees willing to participate (e.g. by accepting a forwarded
invitation) you will be asked to accept the new attendees.
