How to default to monthly view instead of schedule view 1 Recommended Answer 6 Replies 14 Upvotes

I do not like the 'Schedule' view AT ALL, and would love to have the app open to the 'Month' view. Schedule view does not let me create or schedule appointments quickly, and won't even give me the option to do so for weeks or days that don't already have something scheduled - meaning I have to switch the view every. single. time.

I understand this view helps people at-a-glance figure out what they need to do each day, but that's not what I need this app to do. I'd like to have it either stay on the last view I chose, or if I could set some kind of default view for this.

Is this currently possible?

I agree.  I'm constantly asked "When's the next time you'll be in town?"  I look almost exclusively at the month view to see what I'm doing that day and throughout the month.  The schedule view is a cartoon that is SO annoying.  Ironic that there are so many options to see what's scheduled at a glance but the user is forced to go to another menu every single time to do just that.  Then, when I try to schedule something on a particular day in month view, the calendar pop back to schedule view for me to add an event.  I'll be shopping for another calendar app.

Oh, and the view does NOT default to the last view you used.  I use month view every time and every time I open Calendar it comes up with schedule view.

UPDATE: When I allowed Google Calendar to run in the background the last view became the default view.  Otherwise if the app opens as a new launch it defaults to schedule view.

That's what I'm trying to find out-where is the setting for view (monthly, daily, etc.):?

Since I can't do it either and there are no responses does it not exist?

This drives me nuts, too.  Google calendar's settings to allow the user to set so many other (minor) things, why not this important user interface?!  Irritating!

Much of this advice is for computer use. On the app, I' ve no way to default to month view. Every single day I have to open and then change, several times per day. What a PAIN!
