You are here:  Help > Calendar Portlet
The calendar portlet allows a calendar to be created for a variety of purposes:  the academic calendar, public events, group/department events or personal events. A calendar can be set to allow authenticated users to subscribe to the calendar.  If a user subscribes to a calendar, the events added to the calendar will show on every instance of the calendar portlet.  If changes are made to an event, those changes will be sent to all subscribers to that calendar.
Anyone can create a calendar on their My Pages tab, and although events can be imported and exported (CSV format), this calendar is not intended to replace the Colby Apps Calendar for faculty and staff. 
When you see the monthly calendar (no event details) in a calendar portlet, the box for any day on which an event is scheduled, will be yellow.  The date in each box is a link to the Full Size Calendar (a full view) of the calendar portlet, displaying the Day view for the date clicked.  You may also click on the Full Size Calendar Link at the bottom of the portlet.  See below for more information on viewing and navigating the full view of the calendar portlet.
