PracticeMaster Q&A: Calendar Refresh Rate

August 2020    Tags: ,

I am often added to calendar records created by others in the office. However, it can take a while for these records to be shown on my calendar. Why is this?

The PracticeMaster graphical calendars (Daily, Weekly, and Monthly Calendars) have a refresh rate that controls how long it takes for new records to display. To refresh your calendar on demand, simply press F5. You can also change how often the calendar automatically refreshes.

To change the refresh rate of the graphical calendars

  1. From the Calendar menu, select Calendar Properties.
  2. From the General tab, in the Options section, select the desired Number of minutes to wait between refreshes.
  3. Click OK.

Keep in mind that having a shorter refresh rate will create additional network traffic and may also slow down the local machine. Also, If 0 is used, the Calendar program will not be automatically refreshed; refreshing will occur only on demand (i.e., when pressing F5).

You may need to experiment with this value to find the right refresh rate that meets your needs.
