copy2calendar Settings

Tab sheet Date/time search

Specifiy the Languages in which copy2calendar should search for language-dependent date or time specifications. By default, copy2calendar will recognize date and time strings in all available languages.

You can restrict the scope of copy2calendar's date/time string search to the languages actually required. This is useful if copy2calendar keeps finding date/time strings that by coincidence represent a valid date/time specification in one of the supported languages.

NOTE! Language independent (=purely numeric) date/time specifications are always recognized, regardless of this setting.

Use the Ambiguous date/time formats dialog to specify which potentially ambiguous formats copy2calendar should recognize as date or time specifications when analyzing textual data.

Date specifications will be between the years XXXX and YYYY

copy2calendar uses this setting to discard date specifications that lie outside the specified time range. This will prevent most wrong suggestions when items such as telephone numbers, postal codes, etc. have the same format as date or time specifications.

Tab sheet Target calendar

Specify here the target application in which copy2calendar will create new calendar entries.

Tab sheet Calendar entry

  • source window title - the title of the source window from which the calendar entry was copied
  • source URL - Internet address (URL) of the source page if the calendar entry was copied from a website. Available for Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox.
