CalendarAnything LWC views

A calendar view specifies which data to show on a calendar, how to organize the data, and how users can interact with the data. CalendarAnything LWC includes default calendar views that are highly configurable.  Some configuration settings apply to more than one view. The primary application features that support calendar view configuration are:

  • The General Settings options on the CalendarAnything LWC’s Settings menu
  • The Create and Edit wizard in CalendarAnything LWC

Some calendar view settings determine whether additional options will be available to those working in the view. Filtering and grouping options are typical examples.

Month view

Navigation: Settings > General Settings > Month View

Month view displays calendar records for a selected month. The default month is the current month.
