Preview SPM Calendar / Change Scheduled Date(s)

After tasks are scheduled, they appear on the Calendar to facilitate task review prior to mobilization to the field.


Open the Calendar


Select the Calendar ribbon.



Preview Scheduled Tasks


1.Use the options on the left-hand side to filter which tasks are shown in the calendar. Filtering is based on the following:

Scheduling Status (Planned, Scheduled - no data, Scheduled - fully complete, etc.)

Task Name

Task State

Person Assigned


Tasks will appear in the calendar with color coding based on their completeness status:


Note: Tasks may appear with status of "Scheduled, Unknown". This can happen if the Calendar's task completeness check has not been run recently, or if the task's scheduled date falls prior to the number of months set in the "Task Completeness Status Months" as explained in Configure SPM Options.

3.Click on a task within the Calendar to select it.
