Calendar Settings

The calendar is a tool in eLC that provides instructors and students the ability to efficiently view the schedule of all their classes. Users have the ability to select specific calendars to view, choose between multiple view options (monthly, weekly, next 7 days, agenda, etc.) and subscribe to their calendar for use in an external calendar tool such as the UGA Calendar, Google Calendar, or iCal.

Improvements to Date and Time selection

In the January 2022 update to eLC, the date and time picker feature in the eLC calendar was updated to reflect improved usability for instructors. The changes are summarized here:

  • The Set to Today button is renamed to Today. The Today button continues to set the date and the time based on the context. For example, choosing Today for an End Date sets the current date and sets the time to 11:59 PM.
  • Added a Now button that sets the current date and time. The Today and Now buttons only appear when a date and time are required. When only a date is required, only the Today button appears and functions the same as the Now button.
  • The previous Date and Time picker in eLC looked like this:
    Previous date and time picker
  • The Today, Now, and Clear buttons are center-aligned in the new look of the date and time picker in eLC.
