I have a question about displaying more records at a time in calendar view. 

My company uses a variation of the Shipley method, which employs different colors to denote different stages in a project. I have my entries set to display with a project name, stage, and start/end times, with color formatting determined by certain fields in the record. 

As far as I can tell, you can only see a maximum of 8 entries at a time in a compact format, which is the 2-week view. This seems to be the same both in the interface and the regular view. 

Is there an alternate way to see entries with this type of coloring in a similar compact view? I am not happy with the Gantt, Timeline, or List views, which either spread things out too much or don't have the same coloring options. I would prefer to have a 2-week calendar format that simply has more rows, but I can't figure out if there is a way to do this within the calendar option or if there is something similar available in another feature that would also allow for a 2-week overview.

Any advice would be appreciated!

Hi there! In case it should help others with the same question, I'll go ahead and paste in some of our thread via Support. 😊

 

The number of events shown in a calendar view directly correlates to the size of the browser window. For this reason, we'd first suggest either clicking and dragging the window to a fuller size or zooming out in your browser window if you'd like to see more events displayed on-screen (such as in this gif), though otherwise I can confirm that you're currently utilizing the cleanest formatting available in Calendar view for this 2-week interval use case.
