This Zimlet provides a preview of some of your calendar events, tasks and RSS feed items. 



  • Display events from all of your checked mail calendars (including shared calendars.)
  • Events are colour coded for each calendar.
  • Place the mouse cursor over an event to see the full event details.
  • Clicking on an event jumps to that day in your calendar.
  • Click on a news item to read the article right in Gryph mail.
  • Click on the News and Events header to hide the sidebar.
  • Calendars (and news feeds) can be hidden from the sidebar by prefixing their name with a tilde (~) character (e.g. "~Vacation".)

Great idea as for the functionality, it's exactliy what I'm looking for.

ZCS 7.x is not supported unfortunately (error message "$ not defined"). Are there any plans for supporting 7.x? I guess you're using ZCS 6.x in UoG and that's why 7.x will not be supported before you update ZCS :-).

I can "help" by testing development versions of this zimlet.




Thanks for your feedback. We have updated the zimlet and now it should work for version 7.x as well.

After a few minutes testing in Zimbra Desktop 7.1.2 it works like a charm! Great job and thanks for fast update regarding 7.x support.


PS: rating updated to 5 stars :) (4 stars were just for lack of 7.x support)

He indeed a great idea but as Jorgeos I have the '$ not defined error' with the latest fix .. anywhere I can help to get this corrected?

Whoops, sorry. An older version was uploaded in place of 1.3. If you try downloading again, you should no longer see '$ not defined'. The latest version should also work with Zimbra 6 and Zimbra 7.
