Calendar Mini View

This article will walk you through using the mini view on your calendars page.

Switch to the Mini View

  1. Hover over Calendars.
  2. Click Calendars.

  1. Click the Mini button above the calendar.

  1. Your calendar is now displaying using the mini view.


Details on the Mini View

Click on a day that has at least one event booked to bring up a window that lists the times, status colors and names of the events booked on that day. You can click on an event's name to load its event details page. Shadowed events will appear lighter than other events.


Adjust the Number of Days to Display

  1. Click Settings in the upper-right.

  1. Click Layout.
  2. Enter a number (up to 92) into the field for Number of days to show under the Mini View heading.
  3. Click Save.

  1. Your mini view is now displaying the number of days you entered.


Quickly Switch Between Number of Days

You can use settings presets to quickly switch the number of days being displayed on your mini view. For example, you can create settings for 31 Days, 62 Days and 92 Days to quickly switch between a condensed month, two month or three month view.

  1. Click Settings in the upper-right.

  2. Enter a number (up to 92) into the field for Number of days to show under the Mini View heading.

  1. Click the drop-down for settings presets.
  2. You can now quickly switch the number of days your mini view displays.


Shadowing on the Mini View

Shadowing causes events to display on calendars that are the parents or children of the calendar on which they are booked. For example, I have a calendar called Meeting Rooms that has a child calendar called Room 6. If shadowing is on, events booked on the Meeting Rooms calendar will display on the Room 6 calendar and vice versa. Shadowed events will display with a dashed border instead of a solid border.

Without Shadowing
With Shadowing

To toggle shadowing:

  1. Click Settings in the upper-right.

  1. Click General on the left.
  2. Click the on or off button.
  3. Click Save.


Additonal Information

The quick add menu can be used on the mini view by clicking the dates on which you would like to book an event, just like the other views. For more information on the quick add menu, click here for the main article.
Note: To add an event for a block in which there is already an event, click the border of the boxed number.

You cannot use the drag-and-drop or drag-and-copy features using the mini view. In order to use these features, please temporarily switch to another calendar view. For more information on these features, click here for the main article.
