First time usersHow to use hidden Calendar features, and how to hide them when I don't need them?

To open additional Calendar features, including limiting by type of session, limiting to specific tutors/writers/consultants, and more, click the small down arrow:

To close the expanded features, click the small up arrow at the bottom of the expanded section:

We use cookies to store your preferences. Your browser will store your last settings for viewing the calendar, such as session type, or whether you prefer the expanded features open or closed.

Checking the "Display free sessions only" checkbox will hide all unavailable sessions - those that are in the past, and those that have already been registered for. If you have registered for sessions, these will continue to display on the calendar even when "Display free sessions only" has been selected.
