If you’ve been using our free Timetable & Event Schedule plugin for WordPress for quite some time now, we have awesome news for those of you on Elementor! Since version 2.3.15, you can add a timetable to your site and control its look via the visual Elementor interface. We’ve added a dedicated Elementor timetable widget that eliminates the need to use shortcodes.
To get access to the widget, you need to have both plugins installed and activated: Elementor and Timetable & Event Schedule.
You can refer to the timetable Elementor widget when you have already added all the needed events, columns, categories, etc.

You can use this plugin for creating a detailed schedule of events of any kind – classes, conferences, anything.
