How do I add new calendar periods?

Steps

  1. Open “Calendar and Year” from the menu.
  2. Open the entry of an existing calendar, e.g., “Buchführungs-Kalender” (accounting calendar), or add a new one.
  3. Go to the record tab “Year” at the bottom of the page and click "Add new". An overlay window opens up.
  4. Enter the Year for which you want to create a new period, e.g., “”.
  5. Click “Done” to close the overlay window and add the year to the list.
  6. Select the newly created record tab entry and start the action “Create Periods”. An overlay window opens up.
  7. Set a Start Date, e.g., “01/01/”.
  8. Define an appropriate Date Format, if necessary (e.g., MMM-yy for Jan-).

    Note: You can learn more about date and time patterns here.
