Displaying Calendars on your Web Page

After you have added a calendar and added events to the calendar, you can show the calendar on your web page.  You will need to decide where you want to display the calendar and what presentation of events will work best.

The Mini Calendar and Upcoming Events presentations work best on the district or building home pages. The presentation is intended for a narrow column and can also go below side navigation as well.

The Multi-Calendar Agenda view should only be used on inside pages where you have the full width of the website for presentation.

Regardless of the calendar you are adding you will need to:

  1. Select the Page Tree or My Pages (teacher pages) option under "Web Pages".
  2. Select to edit the page to which the calendar will be added.
