How the Calendar works in Band Pencil

19 Jan 2020 // 1 minute read

The calendar is an easy way to add and view events in Band Pencil.

Adding Events

Click a date or time, select your event type and complete the information before submitting. Events can be a maximum length of one day, but general events can be across multiple days.

General Events

Store general events like holidays to the calendar so you know not to schedule events at that time.

Drag, Drop and Delete

Once you've added an event you can drag it around to change the date, or time. Clicking on the event will show the information and you can even delete directly from the calendar.


Set the view to daily, weekly, monthly or as a list and save your defaults in by clicking Calendar Settings. In the popup you can also edit your business hours (default midnight to midnight).

Color Coding

  • Green - confirmed event
  • Grey - enquiry
  • Orange - other event status

Custom colors:

You can set a custom color for a service on the service edit page. This color will display on the calendar. If you have more than one color they will all display in a striped pattern.
