The Navigation toolbar is used for navigating throughout the calendar view as well as performance graphs and runtime stats, and it changes depending on what you're viewing.
Note: The date and time text are highlighted in bold when the time crosses a clock change (i.e. Daylight Saving Time). In 2021, Daylight Saving Time began on March 14 at 2:00 AM. When the time range crosses that period, it appears in bold text.
The date/time selector controls allow you to jump to a specific date or time and select the desired time interval.
|Date Selector||Selects the date to view on the calendar.|
|Time Selector||Selects the time to view on the calendar.|
|Go||Moves the calendar to display the time selected in the date/time selector, maintaining the currently selected interval.|
|Go to Current Time||Jumps directly to the current time, maintaining the current selected time slice and interval, unless the interval is greater than one hour in which case one hour is used.|
When you select the date selector, a small calendar appears. Select any day and select the right and left arrows to change the month. Select the bold today text at the bottom to auto-select the current day. You can also enter values for the day or year directly.
To navigate to a specific time on the selected day, select the time selector by choosing a time increment (hour, minute, etc.), use the up/down arrow, or type in a new value.
Important: The workspace view doesn't refresh until you have completed your selections and select Go.
The interval selector is used to zoom the current time interval in or out.
|One Minute View||Displays the calendar in a one-minute interval.|
|Ten Minute View||Displays the calendar in a 10-minute interval.|

|Four Hour View||Displays the calendar in a four-hour interval.|

|Days Selector||Sets the total range of days to display on the calendar or graph. Select either arrow to decrease or increase the value, or type in a new value. The maximum value is 30 days. The currently selected interval (one minute to four hours) as well as the start time of the range is maintained when changing the number of days|
|Previous Interval||Navigates backward in time to the previous interval.|

|Refresh||Refreshes the active workspace view by retrieving the latest information from the SQL Sentry database.|
Hold down the CTRL key when you select it to force a hard refresh. This causes the SQL Sentry client to connect directly to and collect event data from the target instance in case the monitoring service is down.
Note: Not available on custom event views or views with multiple instances.
|View Conflicts||Displays all schedule conflicts for the selected instance. For more information, see the Conflict Viewer topic.|
Select from the Calendar, List, or Split views. The active range note changes only the format in which the event data displays. For more information, see the Calendar view topic.
