Upgrading from a revision of soSIMPLE Calendar 3.x another revision of 3.x

To import your existing calendar settings:

  1. Open soSIMPLE Calendar Settings on your desktop
  2. Click the gear icon to bring up the settings window.
  3. Click “Import file”
  4. Click “Browse file” to select your existing soSIMPLE Calendar Settings file or locate the existing file being hosted FileMaker Server
  5. Follow the prompts.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Any calendar or setting that is marked with a LOCK icon will NOT be imported in the your new settings file.  This is because the upgrades frequently include new features or updates in these default settings. If you’ve altered these settings for your own use, here’s how we recommend saving them:
    1. Before importing, go to your existing Calendar Settings file and duplicate the settings that have changed:
      1. Select your calendar.
      2. Click “Edit” next to Data Source. If you’ve made changes to your Data Source, click duplicate to create a copy of each Data Source you’ve customized, and name it whatever you’d like.
      3. Repeat this step for your Layout, your Theme, and your Options.
    2. After you’ve imported, your new calendar import all of your custom settings.
    3. You can then choose those settings to assign them to your default Calendars.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • All of your calendars will be imported as “Standalone” calendars. To restore them to your current Server-Powered functionality, you need to click the “Power with FileMaker Server” button for each calendar. This button is only available while the calendar is being hosted.
  • Any custom JS or custom CSS added to your file as part of custom development may either be obsolete, or be incompatible with this version of soSIMPLE Calendar. If your calendar doesn’t work as expected, begin by removing the custom JS that has been added.
