If you need to view a day from the month view, you can just click on required day. The same way you can change view and be redirected to any month from the year view.

Select “Enabled” in the “Drill Down” field to turn on this feature.

You can select the required language for the calendar. English, German, Czech, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese and Swedish localizations are provided.

In order to see which colors correspond to data sources, you can display color legend of data sources in your calendar. It is possible to show \ hide all events from certain data source by clicking on the according data source legend icon. Check the box “Show Data Source legend” in the “General Settings” block.

In case you need to change width of legend elements, enter the required size in pixels. Click “OK” to save the settings.

You can enable or disable saving the last selected view of your calendar. If you check the box, you will see the view that was selected by the latest opening of Virto calendar.

The following field allows you to set custom time and date format if needed.

You can use a time format for events. Use custom date and time format strings and enter a value in general settings block. Time with this format will be displayed in calendar, in item view and event tooltip.

You can use different themes for calendar view designed in css file. Then apply css file to the web part and use a custom theme.

It is also possible to define tooltip width. This option is required if a text of item description is too large.

Default and minimum size of a tooltip is 300 pixels.

If a description, for instance, is too large, tooltip may have long scroll.

If we assign the tooltip width 600 pixels, it looks much better.
