The yearly view allows you to get a bird’s-eye view of your long term planning, quickly spot when there are activities planned or availability of resources.  And if necessary, drag and drop events to change plans.

Append ?view=y to your calendar URL to see how your calendar looks like in the year view.  Or try a live demo calendar in the year view.

To make the new year view as an option accessible in the top right corner, the calendar administrator must first enable it in Settings > Calendar Views.  If you are not an administrator, simply use the link parameter as mentioned above to change your calendar views at any time.

A few tips for getting around on the year view:

  • Choose to display the number of months between 1 to 12
  • If you need to start at a different month, click the arrow left or right in the small date picker calendar in the top left corner, click any date in that month.
  • click the month name on the left to go to the month or switch to another view in the top right corner.
  • append a link parameter to see a specific view
  • click on a date or drag over a date range to open the event editor
  • drag-and-drop to move or ctrl-drag-and-drop to copy an event

Noteworthy is that the height of each month grid will be automatically expanded if there are multiple events on any specific date and you may scroll to view the entire selected time range.  This is an improvement over the current month view where the screen height of the full screen is equally divided by the number of weeks on display, resulting in +n events not directly visible sometimes.
