Web Interface

Application Settings for the Web Desktop

This FAQ outlines the different application settings available to change the default behaviour of the OnTime Group Calendar Web Desktop.

Application settings are configured from the OnTime Config DB using the "Default Settings" as shown below.

 

Default Settings

 

Below you will find a section per setting and a description of the setting.

 

AvatarBorderRadius

This application setting allows you to control whether photos should be displayed as squares or circles in the interface. This setting takes values between 0 and 50 where 0 equals square and 50 round.

CalItemBodyHeightExtra

This application setting allows control over the additional height of the body field on calendar entries in pixels.
Note: No longer used from version 5.4 as the body field now expands dynamically.

CalItemReread

To avoid conflicts when saving edited entries, the client will re-fetch data from the back end, before the user is presented with the calendar entry dialogue box. This setting takes the value true or false. This resembles doing a refresh (F9) before opening the entry for editing.

FreeTimeSearchDays

Changes the number of days into the future the clients will perform a free time search. The default value is 93 days (3 months). Use this setting to override the value. If <= 0 we use the default value.

FreeTimeSearchMaxUsers

Controls the number of users that be included in a free time search. The default value is 200 but can be increased. This setting is new in 5.4.

SearchCalendarsMaxUsers

Controls the number of users that be included in a search for content in calendar entries. The default value is 1.000 but can be increased. This setting is new in 5.4.2.

MaxUsersInGroups

This setting controls how many users can be added to a private or a shared group. The default value is 200 but can be increased. It is however important that the total size of the combined names never exceed 32Kb.

NoWeeksInWeeksView

Allows you to show more than the default 2 weeks in the week view.
Note: No longer used from version 5.4. Can be defined by the user directly.

NoWeeksInVacationView

Allows you to show more than the default 8 weeks in the week view.
Note: No longer used from version 5.4. Can be defined by the user directly.

PageSize

This setting controls how many users are loaded at a time in the main view. This setting can be increased in newer browsers but older browsers can run out of memory if you increase this setting.
Note: No longer used from version 5.4. 

QuestUrl
This new setting controls the "?" help. If it is not set for the user the ? works as in previous versions. If it is added to settings for the user but left as "" blank then the ? is not available for the user.  If it set like this "QuestUrl" : "http://www.acmeinc.com" then clicking ? will open a new window with www.acmeinc.com. This setting is new in 5.4.4.

UserListMaxUsers

Controls the number of users which will be shown in name select dialogues if "Enterprise Scaling" is deselected. This setting is new in 5.4.3.

UserListRowHeight

This setting controls whether 1,2 or 3 lines of information from the name format should be displayed in the name selection dialogue boxes.
