Customizing the Planner View

Typically, the planner can be overviewed by looking at the whole year. However, when you have many events in the grid, it can look congested.
To remove some of this congestion, you can change the view of the planner to see only certain parts of the year.

You may also wish to hide the Event Types to give more space on viewing the planner's events.

You also can change the colours of the Planner to suit your needs.
