2. Full Calendar vs Widgets Embedding

Timely event calendar software is an incredibly convenient and efficient way to organize and promote events on Wix. With a wide variety of calendar views available, you can customize the experience to create a full-scale calendar or opt for a mini calendar widget.

A full-scale calendar usually spans an entire Wix page. Being an expansive calendar version allows room for several calendar functions, such as date and keyword search, calendar subscription, and filters.

The mini calendar widget views are smaller and require less space. Usually they only display a limited number of upcoming events, and have no search or filtering functions.
