Mini Calendar Card

Set up a Mini Calendar Card for quick reference to upcoming events

A Mini Calendar Card gives people an easy way of referencing past, present and future events, without having to visit the calendar page itself. In order to use a Mini Calendar Card, the calendar you want to display in the Card must already exist somewhere on the intranet.

The size and layout of your Mini Calendar Card will depend on the layout of your page and the size of the device it is viewed on.
