Use the Event Listing block to display all events that belong to an organization or business unit on the corresponding Event Portal Site. Choose between a list or calendar view. By default, the Event Listing block will display all published events within its organization that are current or have not yet started. Events that have ended will not be displayed.
In list view, events are listed chronologically by start date, with the soonest event listed first and subsequent events listed in ascending order.
Add the Event Listing block by selecting the "Add block" button at the bottom of the Page Editor screen. Once you've added the Event Listing block to a page (or before you add it to a page) you can configure a number of settings:
