Setting the default tab of the event editor?

Post by Qub1 » Tue Jan 22, 2013 5:35 pm

Is is possible to select a default tab for the event editor? So that when you go to edit an event or create a new one, it would automatically select the tab that you have entered.
Because right now it automatically goes to the Reminders tab, and I would like to have it go to the Description tab.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Qub1, welcome to the forums. When the event is opened, VueMinder has some intelligence to decide which tab is most relevant to the user. It sometimes guesses wrong, but here's how it decides, starting at the top:
  • If creating a new event, the Description tab will be shown be default. Else...
  • If the event has a non-empty description, the Description tab will be shown be default. Else...
  • If the event has a reminder enabled, the Reminder tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event is a meeting request, the Meeting tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event is a recurring series, the Recurrence tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event has a custom appearance, the Appearance tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event has custom data defined (Ultimate version only), the Custom tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event has linked files, the Files tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event has links to other events, tasks, notes, or contacts, the Links tab will be shown. Else...
  • If the event is read-only, the Reminder tab will be shown. Else...
  • If none of the conditions above are met, the Description tab will be shown by default.
In other words, if you enter a description for the event, and then close/re-open the event, you should see the default tab is the Description tab instead of the Reminder tab.

I'm planning to add an advanced option to force a certain tab to always be the default, bypassing VueMinder's logic. I'll post a reply when this improvement is completed.
