Configuring the Calendar visualizationΒΆ

Prerequisite

For the Calendar visualization to be available, the dataset must contain at least one date or datetime field, and a text field containing the title of the calendar event.

In the edition interface of a dataset, the Visualizations > Calendar tab allows to configure the Calendar visualization displayed in the front office, once the dataset is published on the portal.

The Calendar visualization, when available, is optional. It can be enabled or disabled using the tick box displayed right under the visualizations tabs.
