Using the Weekpad

What is the Weekpad?

The Weekpad is a “TaskQuark pad” showing the tasks for a given week.

The Weekpad provides a weekly view of the tasks, showing different events and work times for each day of the week. Also, the task are shown in different colors depending on their state.

The tasks that have and event or repetition in a specific time are show in the corresponding time row. Those tasks without a specific time are shown at the bottom of the column, in the “To Do” section.

Tip

The very same task can be shown multiple times in the same week, depending on the time and date of its different events and repetitions. Use the Select option in the task context menu to select all the occurrences of that task. Or press Crtl+Click to select them all.

The current day and time is shown by a light yellow color in the background of the pad. The weekend days are also marked with a light, grey color in the background of the pad.

The number of the week in the year and the date of the day are shown at the top of each column.
