The Calendar plugin is a great tool which allows users and administrators to create events which will appear in the calendars of users who have appropriate access. Events can include things from appointments to vacations, and everything in between. Event types are entirely customizable.
When an event is added, it will be added to the site calendar where users can view all the events (depending upon the permissions set for the event). Additionally, upcoming events will be displayed in a block on the page. There is also a 'Site Calendar' block which highlights dates with upcoming events.
The configuration options for the Calendar plugin are available in the Online Configuration Screen.
Please note that some of the options from glFusion’s main configuration are also relevant for the calendar plugin.
Times and dates are formatted according to the current language and the locale settings from glFusion’s main configuration.
The master calendar is global to the site, all users (with appropriate permissions) can view the master calendar.
Personal calendars are unique and private to registered users. No other user can see or modify a personal calendar.
