Adding Live Training Calendar of Events

by Colty Harrison

Viewing Your Calendar

The Live Training Event Calendar can be viewed by navigating to [Domain URL]/calendar in your browser (for example,


In this view, you can see all of the live training events for your domain with an option to filter by Month, Week, Day, or List views. If you are a student, you can also differentiate between registered and non-registered events. Clicking on the event will take you directly to the lesson page if you are registered for the course. If you are not registered, it will take you to the course details page.

Managing Calendar Settings

To manage the settings for your calendar, navigate to the Catalog Settings for that domain from the Domains and Publishing page.


Scroll down to the Calendar View section on the Catalog Settings page


Page Title - You can change the page title that appears in the browser window by editing the Page Title field.

Header HTML - You can add any customization to the calendar header here, including header text and images. This will go above the calendar at the top of the page. This is also a great place to add any CSS customizations for the calendar view. For example, if you would like to make all calendar buttons red, you could add this CSS to the calendar Header HTML:

/* Affects Month, Week, and Day views */
#calendar-view {
    background-color: red;
    border-color: red;

/* Affects List view */
#calendar-view .fc-event-dot {
    background-color: red;

Tips to Optimize Your Live Training Calendar of Events

There are many ways to optimize the use of your Live Training Event Calendar. Here are a few best practice recommendations:

  • Embed it: Embed the Live Training Event Calendar link on your website to guide students to a full list of your upcoming ILT events.
  • Link it: Link the Calendar on your Skilljar course catalog, in the summary section of your courses or the long description of ILT event courses. 
  • Create a course with it: Create an "Upcoming Live Training Events" course and embed the Live Training Event Calendar in the Skilljar lesson. You can even disable the registration requirement so that when students select the "Upcoming Live Training Events" course it will automatically open the first lesson of the course without requiring students to register first.
