Show whole year on the calendar in the bottom left corner when on monthly view
Open, WishlistPublic

Description

Whilst working with the monthly outlook, the little calendar on the bottom left corner also shows the month.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Choose the monthly overview on the main calendar

Actual result:
You have two monthly views next to each other.

Requested result:
Changing the small calendar to show the months in a year would allow the user to navigate more easily between the months - so instead of showing the days in a month, the months in a year are shown and the purpose of the little calendar (overview, navigation) is fulfilled best.

I agree, but I'm not sure if making it disapear while using the monthly overview isn't confusing and if it's really necessary to change?

Also by having two it makes it possible to look at 2 different months at the same time

It's not necessary, but I think changing it would be more confusing than just leaving it there and ignoring it.

@A.Spiesberger why would it be more confusing?

Because than things start changing from one view to the other, and I wouldn't really know why.
A thing that would make sense is, if the view changed from monthly view to day view, so that if I choose a Day on the big month overview I can see the plans for that day there in small.

I also think it could be confusing that sometimes the little calendar in the left corner is there and suddenly it isn't and you don't know why or how to change it back..
And as I already said I think it can be useful to be able to see 2 months at the same time. So I would rather not change this feature.

I think one solution would be to be able to "hide" the left calendar - so to be able to make it appear by clicking on an arrow (showing to the right to make it appear) and disappear (by clicking on an arrow to the left to make it disappear). Do you agree? Should I change the ticket?

I think that would be a good idea. I'm fine if you change it, everybody else too?

If you want that option, you can change the ticket. I think it would be a feature request then?

The option to choose would be very good!

I changed the description. But I think now this is rather a feature request right?

It is a rather big UI element. Removing it when the user clicks on the "month view" will lead to "blinking" effect that might confuse users.

The purpose of this calendar widget is quick navigation. Maybe we should change the widget to allow easy navigation through the months in a year rather then just removing it?

I don't wuite understand how you want to change the widget @bohlender

instead of showing the days in a month, we could show the months in a year.

I like that.

Yeah that sounds good to me

I changed the ticket. You all agree and want to move it to "done"?

I changed the despriction again because it didn't all make sense - some parts were still suited to the idea before. I think now it all fits together and makes sense, so I'd be happy to move it to "done".

A.Spiesberger renamed this task from Minimizing option for calendar in the bottom left corner to Show whole year on the calendar in the bottom left corner when on monthly view.
