Working with the Today View

In this lesson for macOS Mojave, I look at how to view the Today View on the Mac, as well as how to customize what is shown in the Today View.

Accessing the Today View
To access the Today View, you click on the three horizontal lines in the upper right corner of the display. This will slide out the Notification Center/Today View. There will be two tabs at the top, click on Today to view the Today View. You can also swipe from the right edge of the trackpad to open this view.

Viewing the Today View
When you are viewing the Today View, you will what is going on today from various apps. It does this through widgets, each app will have its own widget. The Stocks app will show you how the stocks you are following are doing today thought the Stocks widget, the Calendar app will show what appointments you have today through the Calendar widget.

Rearranging Today View Widgets
To reorder how the Today View widgets are shown, click on Edit at the bottom of the Today view. The Today View will slide out further and on the left panel will be all the current widgets. At the top-right of each widget will be three lines, drag these lines up and down to rearrange the widgets. Click on Done at the bottom when you are finished.

Adding and Deleting Widgets
To add or delete widgets that are shown in the Today View, click on Edit at the bottom of the Today View again. The Today View will slide over into two panels. The panel on the left shows the current widgets, while the panel on the right shows the widgets which are available. Click on the green ‘+’ to add a widget from the available widgets to your Today View. In the current widgets, click on the red ‘-‘ to remove a widget.
