Events Calendar News & Updates - November 10, 2009

| No Comments

Sign In Link
We have added a link to the bottom of the screen allowing contributors to sign-in to the system. If you are not signed in, the link will display "Contributor sign in". If you signed into the system, then it will display the user that you are signed in as.

Change in Editing Events
When you are signed into the system and are viewing an event, an "Edit" link will appear above the event title, which will bring up the editing window. This replaces the need to press Ctrl-Shift-F5 and should make editing events easier.

Updated Documentation
We are continuously updating the documentation provided as we add new features, make modifications, and receive feedback. Please visit the e-Communications blog at for updates to the Events Calendar documentation. Updated documentation was posted last Friday.

Displaying Events on
An option has been added to the "Submit an event" page that allows contributors to decided if they want an event to display on If you select "Yes", then the event will appear on the site. If you select "No", then the events will only appear in RSS feeds. This will allow groups to add events that they wish to appear in RSS feeds, while restricting the event from showing on the site. This is helpful if a group has an event that they use the calendar to populate events on their website, but not on the site. Events that have the option set to "No" will still appear on to contributors logged into the system. This will allow groups to find these events if they need to edit them.

As we move forward with the Events Calendar, we would love to hear feedback from contributors on their experience with the system. We would like to hear what works and what could be improved. If you have any feedback that you would like to share, please send an e-mail to
