I'm trying to rotate through different employee calendars, and without knowing who's calendar I'm looking at, it doesn't mean much.
I got to display multiple calendars using different calendar IDs, but how would I just display the "name" of the calendar?

Hi Maanit,

Just an idea: you could add a text item above the calendar with the calendar names and just cycle between them at the same interval as the calendar. Just a thought

That's a good solution David, however when I add text, and create a playlist with multiple text items, I don't see where I would set a time for it to cycle through.
Maybe I'm missing it. Sorry for my lack of knowledge. I just found this and have already found it to be quite useful. Just need to see if it fits my immediate needs!
Thanks for the quick reply!

edit:
nvm, I see in the 2nd text item there is a duration option.
Thanks. I'll play with it more and post if I get stuck somewhere! Appreciate the help!

Not sure you still need this, but... You can add the title to the iframe code. On our situation, it was just displaying 'calendar' and not 'Meeting Room One', etc. <iframe src="https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?itle=Meeting%20Room%20%20one&amp;showNav=0&amp;......

My earlier example seems to be missing the 't' in 'title', so here is an example of how we renamed the default 'calendar' name to 'Meeting Room Five' in the iframe code - <iframe src="https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?title=Meeting%20Room%20%20Five&amp; (rest of code continues).

I too am trying to use the Google Calendar widget and notice that there is no calendar name. Is there not a way to have the widget display the name at the top of the region? That would seem to be the best option. Creating another region just to handle calendar names seems like it could turn into a nightmare really quick. Or am I missing something. Thanks for the assistance.
