How do I customize my Calendar display?

The Calendar tool can be customized according to your individual display preferences.

Calendar Options

To modify the display, select the View drop down menu. This allows you to select your default view by Day, Week, Month, or Year.

List of Events

The last option in the view menu allows you to view your events in list form.

After selecting List of Events from the View menu, you have the following options:

  1. Select the date range of the events you want to display.
  2. You can choose to display site or group events.
  3. Select Update Display once you've selected your settings.

Calendar Ribbon

Just above the calendar itself is a list of additional customizations that can be made to the calendar. This ribbon includes the following:

  • View Events
  • Add Event
  • Import Events
  • Merge Internal Calendars
  • Merge External Calendars
  • Publish (public)
  • Publish (private)
  • Add/Edit Fields
  • Permissions

Note: This ribbon is only visible to the Instructor. Students will only see the View Events and Publish (private) options.


Beneath the calendar you will see a Legend that defines what all the different icons mean. As events are added to the calendar, the event type designation will populate the associated icon into the calendar.
