1) Create a sample work orders file to connect with the calendar add-on.
2) Download and import sample work order data.
3) Install the calendar add-on
4) Connect the add-on to the existing work orders system
5) Learn how to remove the calendar time by making records “all day” events.
6) Connect the color-coded styles based on work order type.
7) Learn how to add tooltips
8) Create a filter to display records by technician name.
9) Learn how to work with the included buttons and how to refresh the calendar via scripts and script triggers.
