Events calendar BETA

Another day another update! Today we’ve released the BETA (testing) version of the Events Calendar!

This update gives the ability to view a calendar of all up coming events, services and scheduled notes. You can create calendars and also link up an existing Google Calendar. Events can also be created with the ability to invite people or groups.

We’ve also updated the dashboard in the Admin Area to display the calendar mini style.

What’s next?

  • Ability for invitees to write comments on events (Facebook style)
  • Click on a day on the mini calendar will show the scheduled events for that day
  • Ability to subscribe to calendar
  • Attach assets (e.g a room, a piece of equipment) to events so you can track if they are already being used. Great if you hire out your venue or gear so you don’t double book

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Can this be used to generate calendars for people scheduled to volunteer for services (ie worship rostering?)

 

Hi Emily,
Thanks for the comment. Yes we plan to expand this into a calendar for volunteers in the near future. For now volunteers can subscribe to their roster via their calendar on their computer or on their phone. The link is at the bottom left of the Roster page.
Let me know if you have any further questions

We want our members and leaders to view the events calendar on the members home page area instead of / or above the latest posts – is this possible?

 

Hi Nicole,
The events calendar is still in BETA testing mode but we have it in our plans to soon release a version in the Member Area. We’ll be sure to let you know when it’s ready :)
Have a great week

Are we able to book assets to services as well? We have services at varying times in the same spaces we rent out to the public and need to ensure we don’t double book a room or piece of equipment.

 

Hi Aimee,
Not yet but we have it on our feature list. I’ll add your vote! :)
Have a great week
Ben
