Calendar for Grafana

Build Release License Twitter

A panel plugin for Grafana to display calendar events from data sources.

  • Change time range by selecting the days in the calendar
  • Query calendar events from any data source



I maintain several plugins for Grafana. While my employer allows me to spend some time on developing plugins, most of the work happens on evenings and weekends. At the moment, I'm prioritizing fixing bugs and reviewing PRs over introducing new features.

If you'd still like to propose a new feature, create a new Discussion. While I likely won't be able to work on features myself, I'd be happy to accept pull requests. If you'd like to contribute a feature, please let me know before you start working on it.


This section lists the available configuration options.

Panel options


Scroll to bottomAutomatically scroll to the end of the time range.


TextField to use as event text. Defaults to the first text field.
DescriptionField to use as event description.
Start timeField to use as event start time. Defaults to the first time field.
End timeField to use as event end time.
LabelsFields to use as event labels.

If only Start is configured, events are considered instantaneous.

If End are configured, events are considered to have a duration. Any events that are missing an end time are considered ongoing.

0.7.0 (2022-03-09)

Full changelog

  • Quick links: Enable quick links to follow the data link when you click the event rather than opening a modal.
  • Update to Grafana 8.4.3

0.6.0 (2022-01-28)

Full changelog

This release bumps the minimum required Grafana to >=8.0. Grafana 8 introduces a new theming engine for panel plugins.

  • If you're running a Grafana version before 8.0, you should stay with v0.5.0.
  • If you're running Grafana 8.0 or above, you should update to v0.6.0.

0.5.0 (2021-09-06)

Full changelog


  • Data links support (#25)
  • New details view: Instead of relying on tooltips, this version uses an inline drawer to display additional details. I like this better, but the built-in drawer component has some limitations. I'm not sure I like that it's a modal for example. I might end up creating a custom sidebar component. Let me know what you think about the new design!
