Calendar views are ways of presenting events in a main calendar spud.
For example, some views provide a lot of detail with each event. Other views are spare and compact. Some views support photos. Others look very traditional, like something you might see hanging on your kitchen wall.
The following image shows the same events presented in Classic Table, Detail List, and Classic Month view.
While each main calendar spud has a default calendar view, you can associate the spud with several different views and give visitors the option of selecting the view they prefer. You can also customize each view to present events exactly the way you want.
Tip The main calendar spud not only displays the calendar views. It also displays event detail views that appear when you click an event description in the main calendar or other spud. You can learn how to select and customize event detail views in another topic.
Every published calendar has a default view that you select when you first publish the calendar.
With the main calendar spud, you aren't restricted to a single view. You can select alternate views, and then give calendar visitors the option to switch between views to find the one that best meets their needs.
If you've added alternate views for a main calendar spud, you can change which view is the default at any time.
Customizing calendar views means setting the way the main calendar spud looks and behaves on the webpage where it's published.After you select the views that you want to provide, you can customize:
Those all-views settings include:
On the General Settings tab, you decide whether or not to:
Embedded calendar list
The calendar list lets visitors hide or show events based on the calendar the events belong to.
Tip Consider displaying the calendar list only if you mixed other calendars into your calendar during the publishing process. Learn more.
The following image shows how an embedded calendar list looks.
Even if you choose not to display the embedded calendar list, you can let visitors hide or show events based on calendars. For example, instead of displaying the embedded calendar list, you can add a Calendar List spud and embed it beside the main calendar.
Automatically detect mobile
Automatically detect mobile means that calendar visitors who view your calendar using mobile devices will see calendar and event detail views optimized for smaller screens.
To learn more about the mobile table and event detail views, see Auto display mobile views on mobile devices.
If you decide to embed a calendar list above your calendar, on this tab, you choose style settings that determine how that embedded calendar list will look.
On this tab, you choose the settings that control how the Event Actions panel looks.
Tip If you set global styles, those global settings are reflected in the Styles sections of the Event Actions Panel tab.
Using the style settings on the Event Actions Panel tab, you can customize the panel's background color, border color and width, font, text size, link color, and more.
Tip If you prefer to hide the Event Actions panel, you can change the event actions settings for each individual calendar view. Learn more.
Using calendar actions, visitors can print the current calendar view and subscribe to your calendar to stay informed about upcoming events.
On the Calendar Actions Panel tab, in the Settings section, you decide which calendar actions to make available. In the Styles section, you choose styles that control how the calendar actions panel looks.

Select No for actions you prefer to hide.
By default, all four calendar actions are visible at the top of each calendar view.
Tip Calendar actions you show or hide using the Calendar Actions Panel tab affect all calendar views, with the exception of the Mobile Table view. Mobile Table view has its own calendar action settings.
When a visitor searches your calendar by keyword, date, or location or uses a filter to limit the events the calendar displays, by default, a search results panel appears above the calendar.
On the Search Status Panel tab, you can hide the panel if you prefer. However, if you provide search and/or filter spuds next to your main calendar, displaying the panel gives visitors helpful feedback about and an easy way to clear search results.
In the Styles section of the tab, you can choose settings that control how the search results panel looks.
Each view has two categories of customization:

For these views, you find both behavior and style settings on each tab.
