Updated Virto Mini Calendar for Office 365/SharePoint Online
VirtoSoftware is ready to introduce the new updated Mini Calendar app for Office 365 and SharePoint online. Find the improved interface, view options, additional color-coding, print settings, and many other improvements in this article.
To start using the new Virto Mini Calendar app, please update it through the app store on your SharePoint site. When the update is installed, you can instantly add Mini Calendar to your SharePoint site page.
Now you can use the Virto Mini Calendar as a compact app. A new compact style makes it possible to fit Mini Calendar into your SharePoint site pages in a more harmonious way. The improved app is compatible with various SharePoint page templates and can be added to the page with several columns or blocks.
Calendar and List of Events
Virto Mini Calendar displays its items both in a calendar and as a list. The days with scheduled events are marked with a grey point in the calendar and with a color-coded point in the list (check the calendar source settings to see the colors of added data sources).
Click an eye icon to hide the calendar and display events as a list of items. This option may be especially useful when you have everyday events. In this case, the event point is less informative because you will see it for every date of your mini calendar. So just hide the calendar and view events as a list if it is more appropriate for you.
Move to the Date
Virto Mini Calendar is extremely easy-to-use and very simple to navigate between the dates. Just click the event point to move to the required date. Moreover, if you click an empty day, add the event window appears (please check your app version before you try this option).
If you click an event in the list, you will see the detailed information provided for it according to your calendar settings — schedule, attendees, importance type, location, organizer, and etc. The color-coded category is also shown on the bottom of the displayed block. To hide the event back, just click its title once again.
Range of Dates
Mini Calendar displays a list of events starting with a current day (“Today”) by default. But if you wish to view previous events as well, just click the date. This action will show the list of previous events as well.
The previous versions of Virto Mini Calendar allowed printing the visible range of Mini Calendar events. We have improved this part of the app settings as well. Now you can print the full list of events in case the scrolling is active.
