Event Location

In the Event section, a new Location parameter is available for Big Calendar type only.

It is displayed in two places. First is following the Text, separated by a colon character(:). The second is in the Event Details, a popup window appearing after you click on the event in the calendar panel.

Contrast Text

This feature ensures that a text color always contrasts well with the background color. It is available for Big Calendar type only.

Work Week and select views

In the Calendar section, for the Views parameter, we added a new option work week. The setting is similar to a week view, but instead of seven days, it displays 5 days and hides Saturdays and Sundays.

In addition, now you can configure which views out of four (day, week, month, work week) will be available for an end-user.
