How to use new categories for the web calendar
Using the new categories on the campus web calendar helps website users -- and it helps your events find their best audience.
The Web Team is announcing some changes to the website calendar system to make it easier for you to share and find information about what's happening on campus.
From now on, calendar items will be organized in broad categories. This will allow calendar readers to filter all events to show only those that are most relevant.
The categories are:
When browsing events on a calendar page, first you'll see a list of all events for a day, week or month.
In the new "Show Only These Events" box, you can check only those categories you wish to see and click the "Submit" button to see a filtered list.
When you submit events to the web calendar, you will need to choose at least one category for each event. The categories are found under the "Syndication" tab in the News/Events Manager.
These are just examples. If you have questions contact Tom Wilkowske (see below).
Please avoid checking more than three boxes for a single event. Many events will fit neatly into a single category.
If you submitted a calendar listing using CommonSpot, please re-edit the listing to put it in a category.
If you used the form to submit events, or have other questions, contact Tom Wilkowske at firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
