Tendenci's Events Module includes a full-featured Calendar of Events where your site visitors can find your upcoming events to view, search, and filter by type and then register.
This Help File will explain the features available on the Events Calendar so you can set-up and customize your website's Calendar.
Tendenci's Events Module offers two primary Views of your upcoming Events: the Calendar View and the List View.
The Calendar view is the default view set-up for your website when you click to go to "Events" from your site's navigation menu and the Blue Superuser Top Bar Nav. This view shows you and your site visitors the current month and any upcoming events.
Look for these features from your calendar view to access the different Events Module content on your website:
- Events Tab
You'll find the "Events" Tab just above your calendar month-view. When you mouseover the Events Tab, a menu will dropdown with a list of options. The Events Tab is visible and accessible to all visitors to your site. Anonymous users will see fewer options than registered users and Superusers. The Events Tab options let you download the ICS file for the calendar, export events, add and edit events, and manage event types.
- Discounts Tab
The Discounts tab also drops down with additional menu options to add and manage your Event Discount Codes. This tab is only visible by Staff, Superusers, and Super Users.
- View Another Month in Calendar
The monthly calendar view lets you and your site visitors scroll to different months and years to display past and future month views of Events. Simply click on the << to scroll to previous months and >> to scroll to future months.
- Event Type Filters
Your Event Types will be listed on the right hand side of the monthly calendar and are clickable to sort events by a single event type in the month view. When you first create your Tendenci website, the list of Event Types will only have "All Events". When you create a new event type, it will automatically be added to the Event Type list on your monthly calendar view.
- Individual Events
Your monthly calendar view will show individual events that are color-coded based on your Event Type color selections. If you mouseover an individual event, the full title of the event will pop-up and you can click on the event to go to the Event's description and registration page. You can add new individual events from your Calendar of events, but you will need to click on an individual event and go to that event's description page in order to edit the event.
- Specific Day View
If you have several events in one day, the Month view could start to look a little crowded. That's why Tendenci includes a List view for each day of the month. To go to the list view for a specific date, click on the numerical day of the month on the calendar.
Events List View
The List View (or Search view, as it is also sometimes referenced), displays a searchable list view of your upcoming events. If you have multiple events going on everyday - you'll probably want to send your site visitors to the List View instead of the Calendar View.
If your organization has multiple chapters that are all using your events calendar to promote events or you often list different community events on your calendar then you'll find the List View more useful for displaying and searching Events.
List View Features
- The List View has a different format from the Calendar view, but still functions basically the same. At the top of the list view, your site visitors can search for events by date and type or use the search bar to search all events.
- Just click on any event's search results title to go to the Event's description page with registration information. There is also an Events Tab with the drop down menu just like the Calendar View has.
