Can I Search for Calendar Records?
Yes, but remember that the calendar is a front end, so performing a “find” in the calendar interface (in the day or month views, for instance) doesn’t really make any sense as you’d only find the calendar's interface records, not appointment records.
You’ll find a “Search” button on the Day, Week, Month and Schedule screens. This search routine allows you to build a found set of appointments and manipulate them in a traditional FileMaker List or Table view. You can also jump from any found appointment to its record in the Daily view, or export the found set of appointments as an iCal file. When you click “Search”, CC Calendar builds a found set to match your current context and filter set. So if you are on the Month view for May 2003, with the filter set to show just “Personal” appointments. Clicking on search will produce a found set of Personal appointments for May 2003. Clicking search from other screens will similarly produce a found set of records matching the Day or Week you’re viewing. In this way you can easily print (or export) all the appointments for a given Day / Week / Month.
Once on the search screen you can continue to manipulate the filters and then click “apply filters” to adjust the found set. You can also enter find mode and find records by hand, or use FileMaker’s “constrain” options to reduce or expand the found set of filtered records (In Find Mode: Requests / Constrain Found Set).
Note. Both the “For” filter, the Appointment Type Filter, and the Resources filter are formatted as pop up menus so that you can select multiple values. For instance, you can show (or hide) appointments of more than one type by putting more than 1 value in the calendar filter.
