The Mini Calendar Tool is available only on the Right Side Bar. This tool pulls events from the CMS4Schools or Calendar4Schools Calendar Admin, displaying all or selected calendar categories in a monthly or list view.
Access the Right Side Bar
In the CMS4Schools Main Website Administration Navigation Builder click on the Right content of the page where the Announcements Tool will be displayed.
Note: If no Right Side tools are used, the Main Body will use the full width of the page except for the left side navigation links. When tools are added to the Right Side, all tools in the Main Body will automatically resize to optimally fit the smaller width of the Main Body area.
Add the Mini Calendar Tool
- Add Tool to Right Side: Select Mini Calendar from the list
