The Calendar legend is one or several lines of rich word processing text that will appear at the top of every view and printout of your Calendar. It is useful for sharing information, messages, guidelines, and abbreviations, that you would like displayed throughout your Calendar regardless of the Calendar View. You have the ability to add links and some limited formatting options to your Calendar legends.

Note: the Calendar Legend feature is only available in paid Keep&Share accounts.
