Event information pulls from configured events within the system. Events can be displayed in list format, card (horizontal or vertical), or as a schedule.


The primary configurable areas fall into one of three categories: data, positioning, and styling.


Events are added to a component by Event Type. One or more event types may be displayed within a given component and filtered accordingly to display only the desired events. Filtering options include school level, grade level, campus, primary group, and more.


Positioning determines how the date, event type description, and time display. This includes not only justification settings but also visibility settings for event data such as whether or not the event type description is displayed. The positioning configuration options will be different depending on the event component type chosen.


Set a background for the entire event component and change the text color.
