Install The Simple Calendar Plugin

This plugin comes in a free version available in the WordPress directory, as well as a premium version available on their website.

Integrate With Google Calendars

You’ll want to create one Google Calendar per integrated calendar, and create your events there.

Style Your Calendar

Choose how to want to display your calendar: the two main options are Grid View and List View.

You can also change colors, and how many events will show up per page.

If you want more flexibility in how events show up, that’s where upgrading to their premium version unlocks these settings.

Embed The Calendar On Your Membership Pages

Finally, add the calendar shortcode to your AccessAlly pages. You can embed the shortcode in a sidebar, footer, or directly on a post or page.

You can also create multiple calendars for different groups, and keep everything organized by calendar that way.
