Here are some things to check:
When you are not logged in, the preference settings are determined in two steps.
If the User has gone to the Anonymous Preferences screen, then the options for Show Stop Time, Show Resources, and Time Zone are controlled by what the User has selected.
In all other cases, the options are controlled by the User preferences set for the GUEST User. To edit the settings for the GUEST user, go to the Setup Public Calendar Viewing screen.
For exporting data from MS Outlook into Connect Daily, there are two options:
iCal Conversion Program
Using the iCal Conversion program, you can export your Outlook data as iCal (RFC-5545) data for import into Connect Daily using the Import iCal File screen. This method gives the best results because it preserves recurrence information for events.
Use the link below to download the converter.
Comma Separated Value/CSV Export
Using Outlook's export capability, you can save your events in CSV format. Once they're in CSV format, they can be imported into Connect Daily using the CSV Import Wizard. If you use this method, recurring event information will not be exported. Any recurring events will be exported as a series of one-time events with the date for each recurrence.
For importing Connect Daily data into MS Outlook, there are 4 options.
Remote Calendar Subscriptions
Outlook version 2007 and higher can subscribe to Connect Daily's iCal feed URL's to create an internet calendar. By default, Outlook will refresh the calendar every two hours.
Connect Daily Sync Program
The Connect Daily Sync program is the best option. It will keep track of which Connect Daily events have been brought into Outlook and not create duplicates. You can download the sync program from the link below.
iCal Conversion Program
Using Connect Daily's iCal export feature, import the iCal file into Outlook using the iCalConversion Program.
If you are using MS Outlook 2007, you can use the iCal Export feature of Connect Daily to create a dynamic imported calendar in Outlook that contains your events. Just go to the iCal export page, and click on the webcal:// link for the calendar you wish to link to.
Export your Connect Daily events using the CSV Export screen, then use Outlook's CSV Import screen to bring in the events. This is the least desirable way, because no recurrence information is exported.
To configure this, go to the Setup Public Calendar Viewing screen and check the option for Can the public add events to the calendar?
Once you've done this, you'll still need to add a link to the custom header to give the users a way of adding the events. To do this, go to the Edit Custom Header screen.

Connect Daily allows you to colorize events two different ways.
If you have the global configuration setting "Item Styles Are Linked to Event Types." is set to yes, then the colors of an event are controlled by the type of the event. To set the colors by event type, go to Edit | Event Types and edit each individual type to set the color.
If you have the global configuration setting "Item Styles Are Linked to Event Types." is set to no, then you can set the colors for an event individually. First, go to System | Item Style Setup and define your item styles. If you don't see Item Style Setup on the System menu, it is necessary to logout and then login again after changing the system configuration.
Once you have the item styles defined, the styles will be available on the edit event screen.
In the SYSTEM | CONFIGURATION | APPEARANCE screen, change the configuration option for "Show Only Approved Events" to "Yes".
When the operator attempts to add an event they receive the message:
Invalid Event Type. Ensure you have permission to USE at least one Event Type.
This message happens because the User adding the event does not have permission to USE at least one calendar Event Type. If you carefully examine the Item Add screen, you will notice that the Event Type dropdown is empty and no option can be selected.
To solve this problem, use the Manage Security Wizard and give this User (or a Group the User belongs to) View and Use permissions for the appropriate calendar Event Types.
Use The Purge Database function on the System menu pad. If you do not see this option, contact your system administrator.
Generally, almost all browsers will work. There are a few exceptions that are documented below:
Opera Versions < 7.1
Viewing of calendars is supported. Opera 7.1 or higher is required to edit calendars.
This is an older browser with quite a lot of problems. We do not recommend you use it. If you have to use it, you should be aware of the following:
Changes to calendar events are not saved until you specifically click on the Save button.
Connect Daily allows you to use a Rich Text editor to create the long description for events. You can also use the Rich Text Editor for creating a custom header that is displayed when you are logged in. The rich text editor is the Dojo/Dijit Editor, available as part of the Dojo Toolkit available from http://www.dojotoolkit.org/.
The editor allows you to format text, including bold, italic, underline, text color, text background color, etc. You can also insert links and images. Finally, you can control the text alignment and insert numbered and simple lists. As you move your mouse over the icons in the editor toolbar a tooltip will be displayed. These tooltips explain the function of the icon.
The editor works by creating a window, and telling the browser to put that window into design mode. To a very large degree, the behavior of the window is dependent on the browser. For example, we've seen problems copying and pasting when using Internet Explorer. This is not a defect in Connect Daily, or the Dojo editor, but a defect in Internet Explorer.
If you are copying/pasting text from Microsoft Word, be sure to use the Copy/Paste from Word function by clicking on the icon as shown below.
Some browsers are faster than others. On our test computer, it takes 4 seconds for the rich text editor to display using Internet Explorer 8. Using the same computer with Firefox 3.10, the page displays in 1.6 seconds. If you're having performance problems, you may want to consider switching browsers.
The various export screens will export the data as you enter it. You should be aware that not all programs will handle importing HTML correctly.
The Rich Text Editor can be disabled by going to System | Configuration | Appearance. Set the option for Enable Rich Text editor for event description to No.
Connect Daily is search engine friendly. Because of it's design, it permits search engines and spiders to index the calendar information.
The same things you do to optimize a regular web page apply to Connect Daily events. In general, you should put a pretty good description of your event in the long description field for Connect Daily. The more content you have for your event, the more likely your calendar will score highly for the event's key words.
We also recommend that you enable the option to Display Event Detail in Week View and List View in the Setup Public Calendar Viewing screen. If you enable this feature, then robots indexing the week view and list view pages will see the complete details for your event.
An IFRAME is an HTML In-Line Frame. It can be used to create a portal within a web page. The content of the inline frame or portal is supplied by a URL to another web page. It is not necessary for the URL to be on the same server. In other words, the IFRAME content can come from an entirely different page or site.
For the technically minded, the IFRAME acts like a scrollable DIV where you can set a source URL for the content.
The HTML code for an IFRAME would look something like this:
<iframe frameborder="no" scrolling="no" id="calendarframe"
src="http://calendar.sample.com/View.html" width="690" height="1024>
Place this code in the custom footer for your calendar. Replace the URL with the URL to your page containing the IFRAME.
