The schedule or event calendar page on your website has two types of display options:
- Current Season Only
- All Upcoming/Past Events
Each option has its own way to show events to the public or team depending on privacy setting.
Covered in this Article:
Current Season Only
This display mode is the default and will show all the events listed in the current season's date range. If an event is outside of the start and end dates of the current season, or selected to be hidden from the calendar on the event details screen, it will not be shown.
>>Note: If you expect an event to display and it is not, check your current season date range from the Manage Team > Schedule > Seasons screen, or your event details on the Edit screen next to the meet name.
The events are listed in chronological order from oldest to newest. Up to 12 events will be displayed at a time, 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons at the bottom will refresh to a new page with older or newer events.
Example of Current Season only while current season is set to 2017
If a parent was viewing this calendar in July (for example), they would have to scroll down through all past events to reach the July events.
All Upcoming/Past Events
This display mode is suggested to keep your members from having to scroll through a list of past events to get to the current/future events, and will show events in two ways:
- Upcoming Events will display all events that are after or during the current day, in chronological order from current to future.
Past Events will display all events that happened before the current day, in reverse chronological order from most recent to least recent. The past events includes previous seasons as well, but the user only sees this if they choose to view past events.
Both versions will display up to 12 events at a time per page. 'Previous' and 'Next' buttons at the bottom will refresh to a new page with older or newer events.
Example of Upcoming Events view when no future events are created

Changing the Calendar Display Setting
These display modes can be altered by going to the Edit Navigation option from the admin dropdown menu, or going to Manage Team > Website from that same dropdown menu. This will take you to the pages section.
Find the page with a gear icon next to the title that could be called Schedule or a custom name your team gave the page.
>>Tip: The best way to find the page is that it will go to (team domain).swimtopia.com/swim_meets.
Click on the "Properties" option on the right side of that page's bar.
The calendar page will have an extra menu other pages will not called the "Calendar display mode" where this setting is configured.
Once the mode you prefer has been set, hit the save button and the settings will take effect.
