GroupCalendar Gantt View: Custom columns in the user list

Filed Under(CRM 2011 | GroupCalendar 2011) By alist

Up from version 5.24 you have the possibility to customize the user pane of the Gantt view.


Per default, only the fullname of the system user is shown.

Up from version 5.24, you are able to customize the columns which will be shown here. You're able to define the columns, column widths and also the sorting.

As shown in Figure 2, we have modified the view to show the Access Mode, Full Name and Primary E-mail. Sorted by Access Mode ascending and then by Primary E-Mail descending.

To define this view, open CRM and go to Settings > Customizations > Customize the system > Select Systemuser > Views and create a new view.

Here, you can customize your view. Define the columns you need, specify the width of each column and also the sorting.

After you have saved the view, do not forget to publish the customization!

What you need now, is the unique ID of the new created view. You can find it in the addressbar:



After that modify the global GC settings.

Create a new setting named GanttUserTemplateId and as KeyValue, set the ID of the newly created view.
Please also select IsCached = Yes
