Development and Integration
- What are spuds?
Spuds are preconfigured widgets that you can use to display calendars on your department site. There are three types of spuds: calendar spuds, promotion spuds and control spuds.
Calendar spuds display your main calendar on your website. These can be a detailed list view of upcoming events, a simple table-style view, or a more traditional calendar month view.
Control spuds are generally used in conjunction with a calendar spud. same page as your main calendar spud. Visitors interact with control spuds to change the state of the main calendar spud. For example, you can add control spuds that let visitors change the view, filter the events they see, and search by keyword or location.
Promotion spuds help you increase visibility for your calendar and events across your website. These can be used on pages that do not contain your main calendar. For example a short list of upcoming events on the front page of your website.
