How to navigate your calendar in Morgen

Marketing @ Morgen

In this guide, we'll show how to navigate your calendars in the Morgen desktop app, and how to quickly create events in the week calendar view.

Before you begin

If you haven't already, install Morgen on your Mac, Linux or Windows PC.

Navigation controls

Morgen's main window presents three controls dedicated to navigation and switching views:

1. The Calendar Views menu

This button in the top toolbar displays the name of the current calendar view – the Week view in this screenshot. Clicking on it opens the Calendar Views menu:

Choose how you would like to view your calendar in Morgen. It's always easy to change using shortcuts.

In this menu, you can switch between the available calendar views: Day, Week, Month, Agenda... Keyboard shortcuts for quickly switching views are listed next to each view button in the menu.

💡 The default view is the Week view. It offers a nice balance between displaying enough days to let you plan your time effectively, whilst letting you see each day's schedule in detail.
2. Current, Previous and Next controls

Click on the arrows to jump to the previous or next month, week or day, depending on your current calendar view. Click on  to jump back to the current.

The arrows up top help you jump forward or back, with the center circle always bringing you back to today.

⚡️ Use the arrow keys on your keyboard for faster navigation between days, weeks and months.
3. Quick-Nav widget

Click on the calendar icon at the bottom left of the window to open the Quick-Nav widget. It's a handy 'day of the month' selection tool which remains open even as you switch between calendar views:

You can open and close the mini calendar to jump to a specific date by clicking on the icon in the bottom left.
