    The new view options with the latest options are awesome – I hope you are feeling great about your work.

    I notice that with the week calendar, there is an option to automatically switch the week calendar to a list when being viewed on mobile. I wonder if it is possible to similarly have the calendar change when in mobile for the full calendar, which doesn’t seem to play nice with mobile browsers (but is otherwise functional AND beautiful!). Having the full calendar automatically display as a list when viewed on mobile would help visitors more easily navigate & view the calendar.


    Hi, thanks for your positive feedback.

    I agree the Full view is not the best on mobile at the moment. There are some limits to what I can do to customize that experience, because those templates are generated by the library.

    I have noticed in the FullCalendar documentation that improved mobile support is on their development roadmap, so I’m awaiting that before making too many customizations of my own on top of it. In my observation, there are two main issues though, which I do believe I can address, and am planning to add in an update in the near future:

    1. It would be nice to be able to set a different default tab on mobile vs. on desktop, e.g. desktop could load with Month pre-selected, but mobile could load with List pre-selected. This will be introduced in ICS Calendar v. 4.9. (No definite timeline on that but it should be this month.)

    2. The only consistent problem I have personally noticed with the month tab on mobile is that if you have the day name headers set to show the full day name (the default), they overrun the table cells and overlap with each other. So I’d like to have them automatically revert to the abbreviations on mobile. I’m still debating whether to make this an option, or just force it automatically. But this should be included in v. 4.9 as well, or possibly even sooner.

    Thank you for the reply & thoughts. The roadmap is helpful to know about – thanks for cueing me into that. As for the other issues, I’ll look forward to 4.9! In the meantime, we continue to appreciate your work 🙂

    One thing that I’ve been dealing with is the event details can’t be toggled on mobile. I like the month view (non-list), but without the ability to have the details hidden by default, the calendar really looks bad. There’s a setting to hide the description, and that is respected on desktop view. Can we make that setting respected on mobile as well?
