How can I use the mini Navigational Calendar when editing my monthly cycle events?
Nav Cal is a contextual event driven calendar which enables editing and reviewing events for a given event type without ever leaving the event tracking screen!
This means, for example, that if you want to bulk add data (such as tracking every day of your period, or catch-up on the last few days of your cycle symptoms), you can easily do so by staying on the event's screen.
Nav Cal appears on the upper right of event editing screens*.
A calendar date is bold if an event for this type exists. For example, if you are editing your period, any day in the calendar month already storing a period day will appear in bold. You can hover over a bold date to see a brief summary of that event's data -- if available. What displays for the summary varies per event type. For example, for the menstrual period event, flow level is the summary data; for fertility events, BBT data is the summary data.
Most events** have a Save & Stay button. With it, once you save, you stay on the edit screen. So, if you then want to edit data for this event for a different date, simply use Nav Cal to flip the calendar date, and edit!
Make sure to save first! If you are adding/editing data, make sure to save your event before using Nav Cal to change the date!
Edit Buttons & Functionality
Most Event screens** have the following buttons:
Save & Stay - Save event and stay on screen
Save & Return - Save event and return to My Events.
Delete - Delete the event and stay on screen. You can use the Return to My Events link when you are done editing. Note that the Delete button is only present if you are editing an event that has data stored for it, and absent if there's no data.
*Exception: Nav Cal is not implemented on the calendar marker screen.
**Fertility Edit screen does not contain Save & Return. In its place is the Save & Next (Day) button.
