Use the navigation arrows that appear to the left of the calendar display date to move forward and back through calendar dates.

If you are in the "Week" view, the arrows will move through weeks, if you are in the "Day" view they will move through days (and so on for the "Month" view and "Year" view as well).

Date selection tools

Go right to a date by using the drop down menu for month, day and year (the options vary depending on whether you are in the day, week, month or year view). For a quick link back to today's display (in either the day, week, month, or year view), select the "Today" icon to the left of the drop down menu.

Calendar layers

The Events Calendar consists of both individual calendars and categories of calendars that can be viewed on their own, in general categories, or all together.

To view all the available calendars, select "available calendars" in the calendar interface.
