The administration screen provides access to a large number of the software's configuration settings. You may work with events, calendars, users, user groups as well as other per calendar and system wide settings. Many of these functions are presented in a simple icon based interface we call the data manager. The data manager simplifies interaction with the various databases.

Per calendar settings

Per calendar settings apply to the current calendar only. For example if you change the skin of a calendar only that calendar's skin changes. Other calendars are not effected.

Applying per calendar settings to all calendars

On certain screens a checkbox appears that allows you to apply per calendars settings to all calendars. This checkbox is labeled 'Apply these settings to all calendars'. This checkbox only appears if there are more than one calendar.

For example, if there is more than one calendar, you will see this checkbox under the dynamic include dialog. Be careful with this feature. It will overwrite specific settings that you may have previously made to a particular calendar.

The customize event database, dynamic include, calendar edit and calendar lock dialogs have this capability.

System-wide settings

System-wide settings apply to all calendars and all users. These functions are accessible only to trusted admin users and the super user. System-wide functions allow you set up broadly applicable features such as users, user groups, user settings, email features, submissions filtering, etc.

The administration screen

The administration screen is presented in two sections as described above. The screen appears differently to different users. Trusted edit users see only the first three functions, admin users see only the first five functions, super users and trusted admin users see all items. Each function, along with the least permission level the user must have to access that function, is presented in the following table:
