How do I add a list of my department's events from the U-M Events@Engineering calendar?

The CoE Events widget displays up to two events with date, event name, and a link to more information. The event details are obtained from the main UM Events@Engineering Calendar, and may be filtered based on department, topic, and other criteria.

To add the widget to your site, first navigate to the widgets panel by going to your site's Dashboard and selecting Appearance, then Widgets:

Drag the CoE Events widget to either the Left Sidebar or Right Sidebar, depending on where you would like it displayed. Under Title:, enter the desired title of the widget. Next, open a new browser window to https://events.engin.umich.edu/, and click the Menu icon at the far right of the blue navigation bar:

Select the department you want information about, note that the name is highlighted YELLOW after being selected (For this example, Aerospace Engineering has been selected):

Highlight and copy the resulting URL in the browser's address bar:

Return to the Widgets for your website, paste the URL into the Events URL: field of the CoE Events widget, then click the blue Save button. The CoE Events widget will now appear in the sidebar of your website.
