    Today Screen calendar settings

    I've poked around with the native options built into the 6600, and I can't find an answer for this, so I'm hoping that someone here knows of a way to tweak the registry to make this work, or knows of a third party app that will achieve it.

    Currently, the Today screen only shows the next two appointments that are scheduled. I'm wondering if there is a way to show a full days worth of calendar appointments on the Today screen, or at least more than just two?

    Thanks,
    Gare

    PocketBreeze may just be your answer.

    Also google for calendar+, which is free and displays multiple days of appointments on the today screen.

    I'm using PocketBreeze
    IMHO - the best today plugin. It allows tabbing and I put SPB Pocket Plus with all its tabs inside 1 tab in Pocket Breeze.
    Have everything now.

    The main problem of Pocket Breeze is that it takes up to 1 min to start after soft reset. I tried everything. Even disabled all other plugins. Onlu PocketBreeze couse that. When it is turned on then PocketPC hangs for 1 min on the start

    Calendar+ will give you everything you need, and it's tiny. Been using it for years on various PPCs w/o a hitch.

    Thumbs up Calendar+

    Thanks for the recommendations on Calendar+. Nice tight plug-in. For the benefit of anybody looking for it, I've attached the cab file (inside CalPlus.zip) which you can simply launch on the PDA to install (I've never been a fan of ActiveSync installers, and this way you can simply copy it via SD Card if you wish).

    Usage Notes: Start -> Settings -> Today -> Items tab

    Make sure "Calendar+" is checked, and "Calendar" is unchecked. Select "Calendar+" and tap on Options... Between the Display and Layout tabs, you can set up how the appointments show up on the Today screen.

    Everyone,

    thanks so much for the suggestions. I loaded up Calendar+, and it is exactly what I was looking for.

    CalgaryBen, thanks for CABing it for us.

    Another fine example of how well this forum works when it is at it's best.
