Calendar page

The Calendar provides an overview of the Content in CMP:

The Calendar provides an overview of Content with search functionality offered through facet dropdowns.

Month/ Week/ Day View

The Calendar can be viewed in Month, Week, or Day View. The month view is selected by default but from the dropdown the week or day view are selectable:

The week view shows the current week with the published Content shown. The week shows more details than the month view, showing the status and type by displaying an icon in the top right corner. Each day is broken down in hour segments for an in-depth overview of the week's published Content:

The day view shows the published Content for each day. By default, Today is displayed, but using the arrowheads allows the calendar days to be navigated. The date is shown in the center above the details of the day. Today returns the Calendar to the current date:

Facet Search
