Understanding the Home Calendar View

The Calendar view in the Home area allows you to view and manage your work week and work assignments on a personal work calendar visible only to you. You can use it to schedule when you want to do your work. And you can integrate it with outside calendars such as a Microsoft Outlook calendar.  


  • This is different from Calendar reports. For more information, see "Creating and Managing Calendar Reports."
  • Due to a temporary problem, your Workfront Calendar data might not display as described in this article. This problem will be fixed in the near future. 

If you need instructions on accessing your Home Calendar, see "Viewing the Workfront Home Calendar."

For information integrating your Home Calendar with an outside calendar, see "Configuring Your Home Calendar View."

The remaining sections in this article explain sections and functions of the Home Calendar View in more detail.

Work items (Tasks, Issues, Requests, and Approvals) assigned to you, your groups, your teams, and your roles display in the left panel. Your interactive Home Calendar displays on the right.CalView.png

You can drag your work items from the left panel to your Home Calendar to schedule when you want to work on them. To learn more about scheduling your work, see "Using the Home Calendar View."

The Allocation bar is a visual representation of the number of hours in your work week and how you are using them.


The colors in the Allocation bar indicate the following information:
