Google Calendar

The Google calendar app allows you to take display a Google calendar anywhere on your portal or web site. 

Adding a Google calendar involves three steps:

  • Add the Google Calendar app (see Add an App to a Page. The Google calendar app can be found in the Scholantis category).
  • Link the Google calendar to your app.
  • Select the Google calendar to display.

Before you begin, be sure to add the Google calendar app to the page. See Add an App to a Page.

Once you have added the Google calendar app to your page, it will look like this:

To configure the Google calendar app:
