Business Calendar 2 offers you 7 own widgets of different types. You can either use them quickly preview your agenda or as a way to launch the application. The following article gives you a preview and short description of all widgets provided in BC. It is only a general overview of the functionalities, further information on the widget customization can be found here.
The Agenda Widget shows you the preview of your current events and task. Similarly to the Agenda View in the app, it presents you the events and task in the form of a list. It is also scrollable, which gives you the possibility to preview the future entries.
Day List Widget
The widget contains two main elements: the current date and the list of your events and tasks. You can choose to show only today’s events or a few following days. You can also set the date format (in the list element) to count down the days remaining to a particular event.
