The Calendar app is useful for keeping track of conference room availability, as well as coordinating different teams' schedules using your Enplug screen.

Setting Up Your Account
When you first set up the calendar app you will need to attach the E-mail account that owns the calendar to the dashboard. We currently support Google and Microsoft Office 365 accounts.
Click on the link for the type of account you wish to use and enter your credentials.
The Enplug app will then request access to the account. You must allow this permission so the app can read events from the calendar.
Once you have granted permission you can choose which of the calendars associated with the E-mail account will be displayed. Use the toggle next to the name of the calendar to turn it on or off. This is what the interface looks like if you are using Google Calendar:
In the layout settings section, you can choose how you would like your calendar to appear. Please note that if you have enabled more than one calendar, you can only select the Timeline calendar layout and you will be given an option to the sort the calendar.
You can also choose the time frame the calendar will display. Available options allow you to extend the time frame up to 24 hours or even a week. In the Meeting Information section, you can choose whether or not to show the name of the event, its duration in hours, and its location. Just uncheck the box to turn these options off.
You also have the option to add a header that will appear at the top of the calendar. Slide the toggle to the on position to turn on the header. You can choose to input text for the name or you can upload an image.
Exclusive to the Room calendar layout, you have the option to display the next event within your calendar.
Styling Your Calendar with Themes
Enplug allows complete control over the colors shown on your calendar. If you wish you can use RGB or hex color values to match your branding precisely. To use one of Enplug's pre-made themes simply click on it and then press save in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
If you would like to create your own theme, click the plus symbol where it says "Create New."
Once you click to create a new theme, the following overlay will appear on your screen:
You can use the color pickers on the left to change the colors of the text and other fields. The changes will be reflected in real-time on the preview on the right side of the screen, so you will know exactly what your calendar will look like on your signage when you are done setting it up. Just give the theme a name, click save, and you are finished.
