Click to hide sectionHow to Change Views and Dates

While previous styles of widgets utilized buttons to allow you to change the view, the current style has consolidated most navigation functionality under the title area dropdown. Clicking on the title area will display a dropdown menu that will allow you to change to another view. The title area dropdown will also display navigation options specific to that view, such as jumping to a specific date, changing to a specific team, or changing the data source.

The title navigation menu as seen in Standings View.
The top section of the navigation menu contains the different views supported by the widget.
The middle sections of the navigation menu contain functionality specific to the selected view.
If the selected view supports jumping to a specific date, then the final menu item will provide that functionality.

The previous and next buttons, whose location depends on the logo location, are usually displayed in the lower left corner of the widget. To minimize interface clutter, these buttons are hidden until the mouse rolls over the widget. These buttons cycle through the time frame (yearly, monthly, weekly, or daily) supported by the selected view.
