Introduction

The Contract Calendar provides you with a quick visual overview of the Contracts opening or closing within a week of a given date. This tool is useful for monitoring the progress of your Contracts and the movement of your Assets.

To reach the Contract Calendar page, navigate to Contracts → Calendar in the left side menu.

The Contract Calendar Page

The Contract Calendar page consists of a table with seven columns, each representing a day, and multiple rows, each representing a Contract or one of the Assets associated with that Contract. The range of dates in which an Asset is rented out is displayed as a blue band stretching from the start date to the end date. This allows you to quickly understand the movement of Assets within a given seven-day period.

In order to reduce clutter, this page only displays Contracts that are either starting or ending within the selected seven-day period. This means that Contracts whose start and end dates are both outside the selected range will not be displayed. For example, in the image below, the selected range is April 4th, 2022 to April 10th, 2022. This means that a month-long Contract opening on March 26th, 2022 and closing on April 26th, 2022 would not be displayed here.

  6. Asset Rental Period
    The rental period for individual Assets within a Contract appears as a blue band stretching between the start date and the end date. Start and end times are displayed in white text at the edges of the band. If the Contract start or end date is outside the current range, this text will be black, and will read “since [start date]” or “until [end date]”. Click on a blue band to jump to that Contract’s edit page.
