Customizing your Calendar View

Although you can choose your calendar view using the drop-down menu below the text field where you copy your calendar link, you can also use URL parameters. There are six main options for choosing what kind of calendar views you want to link to: Month, Week, Day, Year, Event, and Side-by-Side view.

List of Calendar View parameters

With URL parameters you can be more specific with what calendar view you want to link to using the "vw=#" parameter. The "#" in this example is where you will put the code for your calendar view. The potetial URL parameters you can use can be found in the table below:

Forcing the Calendar View

There is an occassion where the "vw=#" parameter won't work and that is if you have a browser session where you are already using a different calendar view than the one you want to display in. In this case, you will want to use the "fv=#" parameter which will force the calendar view to the view that you want. See the example below:

Example:

Code for this example:
