Options Tab

Setting Description

Enter a title for the widget. The title appears as a heading above the widget's contents. You should use the title to provide context to the widget and better structure a page's content by clearly denoting different sections.

When entering a title, you do so only for your currently selected language. If your digital workplace supports multiple languages, you should select  Translation and enter a title for each supported language. 

This field can contain a maximum of 140 characters.

Title link

Enter the URL of a location in your digital workplace. Users who click the widget's title, if it has one, will go to this location. Whether you enter the link as a relative URL or an absolute URL does not matter, it will convert to an absolute URL the next time you edit the widget.

This field can contain a maximum of 2,083 characters.


Enter a description for the widget. The description appears between the title and the widget's contents. You can use this text to provide information to users about the widget.

When entering a description, you do so only for your currently selected language. If your digital workplace supports multiple languages, you should select  Translation and enter a description for each supported language.

Calendar ID

If you would like the calendar Integration to display a specific calendar when it loads, enter the ID of that calendar in the Calendar ID field. The calendar ID can be found in the Calendar Details in the Google Calendar interface.

If you want to see the primary calendar associated with the logged in user’s email, enter “primary”.

Advanced Settings

Select the height of the widget.

The default value is Auto (leftmost slider position) scales the widget's height to fit its contents. You can use the slider to set a fixed height between 50px to 600px in increments of 50px.

Selecting a height less than what is needed to display its contents results in the widget having a vertical scrollbar.


Your digital workplace's theme overwrites many of the settings on the Appearance tab. However, the settings listed above are usable.

Frequently asked questions

Can I sync my calendar to an Igloo calendar?

Not directly. You can, however, invite an Igloo calendar to an event in your google calendar. See Adding content via email for more detail.

Can I search my Google Calendar through the normal Igloo search feature?

Your Google Calendar cannot be searched by Igloo. Igloo does not have direct access to that information due to security restrictions.
