Calendar Sections

Calendar Sections

These are the few calendar product aspects that you need to first accomplish, before launching it as a product on your website. The properties include – creating layouts, defining month and week names (in all the languages enabled), and adding public events to be displayed on the calendar (independence day or any other national and public holiday).

Create month/week layouts

These layouts appear in the layout section, of the designer studio. These templates will be visible only to you (Admin). Using these layout designs you can create a template design for your calendar product. Let’s see how to create a month layout with a grid layout

  • To create a layout, go to – Admin >> Products >> Calendar >> Month/week Layouts >> ‘+Add’ button.

  • Select the type of layout i.e. month or week. Next, give a title.
  • Layout Size – Select the size of layout from predefined sizes whether it is portrait, landscape, square, etc. or you can define a custom size layout. The minimum height and width allowed in custom size layout is 200X200.
  • Click on Save and Continue.
  • This will redirect you to the Month Layout Editor.

General Properties

  • Layout Style – The layout style can be list or grid. All the months’ dates will appear in a list format or grid format. (we are selecting grid for this example)

  • No of Week Per Row – Add as many as rows you want to be shown in the month. Calendar will adjust the month’s rows into your selected layout size.
  • Margin – This will add space between the borders of the two cells of the grid.
  • Border and Border Type – Set borders for the grid and decide upon a border type such as – dashed, solid and dotted.
  • Border Width and Color – Set the width of grid borders and color.

Month Title

  • Modify the font/style/color of the month title and year separately by using a box-wise layout.

  • The month title is divided into three sections - Left Box, Centre Box, and Right Box. They can now have separate styles and contents for each of the boxes.
  • For example, they can have Year in the Left Box and Month Title in the Right Box and apply different font types, color, and sizes for each.

Month Week – Similar to month title, you can customize the design and appearance of week titles (Monday, Tuesday, etc.). You can opt for short format names (Mon, Tue, etc.), change the start day of the week, change font size or color, and apply a background.

Month day – Set font type, style and size of the month days. Apart from this you can set label color, background color and opacity.

Weekend days – Set the weekend days into your calendar. According to your culture, traditions and functioning you can personalize the weekend days, apply different font types, set size background color and more.

Other month days – These are the month days shown from the previous and last month. Usually, they are more light in color in most of the calendar designs. Here you can like other days, personalize the font, color, and background color.

Event days – Calendars are a perfect way to remember birthdays, anniversary, holidays and other important days. You can personalize the event days just like other month days.

Create month/week titles

In our system we have added standard English language month names and week names; both in long and short format.

It is also common to see the short month names in headlines or newspaper titles where space is a concern. According to your calendar design, you can choose to use the long for or the short format of the Calendar names.

Select the type of title you look to add, choose the language from the dropdown and enter the month/week titles (The example above shows weekdays’ name in the French language). This will allow you to create templates on several languages and serve a broader audience range.
