The Calendar page allows you to create company-wide calendar events that can be viewed by an associate in the Web Office. The associate can also create events for themselves and their team from the Web Office Calendar page.
The Calendar is available through the Web Office Home > Calendar widget, and the Web Office Calendar page.
This widget is added to the Homepage by default, but can appear on any widget page. Simply navigate to a widget page within the Web Office Admin Page Configuration section (such as the Team Dashboard or Settings page) and add the Home > Calendar widget.

Selecting the Event Type
There are two types of Calendar Events: Corporate or Shared.
