Link an event calendar to a library or department from the Hours module

To help you avoid adding events when your library is not open, you can link your calendar to a library or department from your Hours module. When adding or editing an event's date and times, LibCal will let you know if they fall outside the opening hours for the selected library or department. Not using the Hours module yet? Check out the Create and manage your library hours in LibCal springboard for more info. You'll need at least one library before you can set up the calendar integration.

If you are creating a new calendar, you'll find this option in the Create Calendar window. To link an existing calendar to a library or department's hours:

  1. Click on Calendars from the command bar.
  2. Click on the calendar's title from the Modify/View Calendar column on the Calendar Index tab.
