  1. I've been having a problem with an event that is happening over a two month time period displaying properly in the Upcoming Fader promotion spud. I want the event to just display one time because there are other events that also need to cycle through. I want them to display one at a time in the spud. However, because I have the event dates set as January 5-February 18, it wants to display the event for each day of the set including dates that have already passed. This then looks like the same event is running over and over and takes forever for the other events to display. If I change the settings to NOT include events from the past, then the event doesn't display at all even though it's dates run into the future. I have the spud settings set to Start Date: Current Day and End Date: Current Day. I thought this would fix it to only recognized the event for a single day which would then only have it display once in a cycle. However, it is still reverting back to January 15 and running each day in a cycle. Does this make sense? How do I set this spud so that it only pulls the current days events and cycles those?
  2. I am using a custom event type and have added three additional custom fields. The Description field was already included. My problem is that when viewing the event details, I realize that the full Description field is not displaying. I have tried to find the place to increase the Max Length of this field, but cannot find it... any assistance is appreciated.
  3. That solved my problem... I just misunderstood the difference in the grouped and the original spud I was using. Thanks again for all of your help!
  4. I use an Upcoming Grouped promotion spud on the home page of our site. It is set to display 5 events starting with current day + 180 days. My question is the spud is displaying, but the events are not in descending order by date, they are just all jumbled up. Am I missing something?
  5. I'm having trouble changing my default calendar view. I have the main calendar embedded in my website. I have changed all the Calendar Settings I can think of and even deleted the customization and old view that I have been using. When I click Preview within the settings - the event display correctly. But when I visit my site - opening in a new window, refreshing, etc... it still defaults to the old view. If you could offer any assistance it would be greatly appreciated.
  6. I have tried three times today to import events and have had no luck. I get the screen where you can upload the file, I browse to Find it, then click on Next... I then select to add these events to my main calendar instead of creating a new calendar or a subcalendar. I click Next. So far so good, but instead of sending me to the screen to Map the fields, I am sent back to the screen where you upload the file. I haven't changed anything about the format I have been using to upload events and have always used an .XLS spreadsheet... Any thoughts? Thanks for your help!
  7. Hey Jill, Thanks again for all of your help! This does work, sort of. It is a little inconsistent with displaying the multi-day event but it does show more than once. I just wish there was a way to group by month and subgroup by week and still get the same result. See this event happens to be an exhibit that will be here for two months. So I didn't want it to display every day and clutter up the calendar, just once each week of each month... now I have to reset the calendar to display group by week and then apply "no subgroup" for this to work effectively enough... This works for now, but it would be great if at some point this feature was reviewed again by the tech department. Just a simple, small request. Thanks again!
  8. Hey, I have been having difficulty getting my setting to change. I would like to change my List View (default view) to show multiple day events in all relevant groups instead of just showing once. I have changed the setting, clicked OK, then also clicked DONE on the Publish settings screen and still this has no effect. My multiple day event only shows one time. Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.
  9. Hey Jill, thanks for the tip - I might try this one when I get a chance. Also, I had one other request that I came upon over the last couple of days. Is there any easy way that trumba could make the event ID accessible. The reason why I ask is that I have some analytic software gathering stats on our site usage and it is collecting actions on the event calendar as well. But it is also providing me with information about when users are accessing specific event information embedded in our page and it identifies the event with an event ID. I think this would be great so we could be able to see what events our users are most interested in. Thanks again for all of your help! You do a great job!
  10. Would it be possible to request that the "Prev" "Next" option buttons be placed not only at the top of the event calendar spud, but also at the bottom? I've had reports of individuals scrolling to the bottom and not liking the inconvenience to have to go back to the top of the calendar to see the next set of data. Thanks!
  11. I have a filter for location on my calendar page and have noticed that when I edit the location field in an event, when I refresh my events page/calendar, the filter still lists the old location. For example, I originally had an event listed as "childrens' department at all locations." So it was too long for the filter box size I need so I went into the event info in my trumba account, and shortened the location to simply "Childrens' department." Well, my filter still shows "childrens' department at all locations" even after refreshing and trying to open the page in a new window... Do the filters update on a scheduled basis and just have not had the chance - or am I missing something?
  12. I have been working on adding the Upcoming Events promotion spud to my home page and I have added the transparency option and taken out the header and border. But I wanted to keep the footer for the "See all" option. When I do this, the footer is not transparent and takes on the standard white background. How can I also make this transparent?
