Week-by-week view in calendar

A week-by-week view in the calendar (y-axis representing hour-of-day and x-axis representing day, in landscape mode) would be ideal for things like weekly schedules. The monthly view isn't helpful at all here, and I've never been very fond of the daily/"by hour" view anywhere.

would also be good in portrait mode

I've used the N900 calendar a lot, and the week by week view there is reasonably good. The month-by-month view is fairly okay. I still miss the calendar views from my old PalmIII and PalmV which is one of the best calendars I've ever had.

You got my vote. Week-to-week calendar always has been a useful view to me.

+1 but portrait mode is enough for me unless the landscape mode is an option.

Yes, a very useful view for me too. Mostly used that in my #N9.. ;)

I am working on a patch adding a WeekPage to the calendar. It doesn't look quite like FireFly proposed but it gives you an overview over the weeks.

Please have alook here:

and tell me what you think ;)

Would be grate to have this in portrait and a traditional table (@FireFly) in landscape orientation.

The Agenda-View is very nice to get an Overview.

For my day to day work I need a TimeTable-like View like the original Poster described. Are there any news on this? I will have some time after the Semester to look into Code, Pointers are welcome. Maybe a Statement from Jolla?

I miss the agenda view also.

What I miss is a quick overview about the events of the next few weeks.

The one to get this is a week-by-week-view like firefly suggested (see also my comment above). The other solution is an agenda view, where I can scroll through the next weeks.

I´ve tested the agenda by using this wiki (thanks to manatus). You should try out this, it may be a compromise, but I think there are two things could be resolved otherwise.

  1. After the actual week the days are displayed only by date. It will be better always to show date and weekdayname.
  2. Allday events shouldn´t labeled as allday. If there is no timesetting, it is an allday event logically. Otherwise there are too much informations, especially in native birthday calendar. Birthday is an allday event by itself.

I´m not a developer, so I don´t know how to change this. If someone has an idea, please post it.

EDIT: For number one I have found a solution:

You have to edit this file


In this line:

return capitalize(Qt.formatDate(d, qsTrId("calendar-date_pattern_date_month")))

you replace this "calendar-date_pattern_date_month"

with this "dddd d.M."

You can change format by trying out the code. dddd returns long dayname (e.g. Monday) and ddd returns abbreviated dayname (e.g. Mon) and so on. Please note, that it changes the displayed date format not only in agenda view, but also in month view.

Are there any news? Will it be implemented in SailfishOs 2?
