SignUp Calendar Page URL Variables

URL variables can be appended to your calendar link to specify certain settings.
If your event calendar is at the URL, we’ll add URL variables like so:

For the first variable you want to add, you need to start with a question mark. For every other variable, you start with an ampersand. It’s pretty easy, and lets you build custom links!

Note: prior to the August 2016 release of SignUp, URLs used the format Those URLs will redirect to the new format, but we encourage you to update your links to reflect the new format instead of relying on the redirects.

These are the variables we currently use:
  • Display Format - df=
    • list, week, or calendar
  • Number of Days (also works with mobile "/msignup/events?") - nd=
    • 30 - or any integer value
    • overrides "df=calendar" switch and forces list view
