Calendar interface

Day Length Settings

For day and week view you can adjust the core hours of your day to fit your routine. Set the day’s start time and and end time in Settings > Calendar > Calendar Display > Day Settings. In addition, you can decide whether to show the time slots outside your core hours in the Calendar or not by enabling or disabling Collapse out of Day Hours.

Week numbers and start day

In Settings > Calendar > Calendar Display you can toggle the visibility of week numbers. There you can also choose which day the week starts with.

Time increments

In Day and Week view you can divide each time slot into smaller increments. You can choose between 15 minutes, 30 minutes and 1 hour in Settings > Calendar > Calendar Density > Time Increments.

You can also choose, whether you want the dividing lines between these smaller timeslots to be visible (like on the screenshot below) or not by toggling on or off the setting for Show only 1 Hour Grid Lines.

Furthermore, when navigating the calendar with your keyboard, you can decide, whether you’ll focus on each 15 or 30 minute timeslot (like on the screenshot above) or just on the full hour. Toggle the setting Use 1 Hour Increments for Keyboard Navigation on or off according to your preference.

Calendar view

There are 3 different event display options available in Vivaldi Calendar:

  • Full – Shows the event time, title, description, location and link of the event.Calendar view with the full display option enabled
  • Compact – Shows the same as above, but if the description or link info are too long only limited amount of that info will be displayed.Calendar view with the compact display option enabled
  • Minimal – Only event time and title are shown.Calendar view with the minimal display option enabled

Furthermore, by enabling the option Show Icons for Event Properties you can see whether the event information includes a link and a location, whether it’s a recurring event and if it’s a task or not.

Editing events

In Vivaldi Calendar you can create and edit events either inline, meaning in the calendar view itself, or in a popup dialog. Choose the one you prefer in Settings > Calendar > Calendar Settings > Edit mode.

Normally, you’d click Done or Cancel/Delete when you’re finished with editing an event, but you can also just click outside the event editor. You can decide what happens when you do that in Settings > Calendar > Calendar Settings > Click Outside Event Should. Choose between:

  • Discard any changes you made;
  • Save the changes to existing events, but discard changes when creating a new event;
  • Save the changes to existing events and save a new event, in case you were creating one.
