How can I add my own fields to the calendar?
You can show fields from your own table(s) in two places in the calendar: on the main calendar views (like Day, Week, and Month), and in the event detail popover (what you see when you click on an event).

The event detail popover (what you see when you click on an event)
Notes for each field are available by clicking "Details...". A couple fields deserve special attention:
- Status: this is the field by which we color code your events. Now this may not be a "status", it could be a division with your company, or a process, but color coding by some field is cool. You can change the word "status" in the calendar's display by editing the translation file--which is easier than it sounds. =)Resource: this is the field that becomes a column on the calendar's "Resource" view. Again, resources may be sales people, trucks, or barbershop chairs. If you have a resource that folks compete for in your business, this is where you map that. This is a very powerful way to look at your events (and to make sense of a dense calendar) so read up on resources here.
Adding more fields
You can go beyond the default fields DayBack shows on it's popover by creating additional fields. This is great for folks with more complex events or with required fields that need to be filled out before an event is created.
