  1. This feature allows event editors to limit the size of the wait list for an event. So if you have an event where you know that a lot more people will be signing up than you have room for, and you don’t want to give false hope to those really far down on the wait list, this is the enhancement for you. To specify a wait list limit, there is a drop down that will appear when you check “Create wait list when fully booked”. The default is blank (no limit). Once the wait list fills, the sign up button text on the calendar views will change from “Wait list” to “Event is Full” by default. M
  2. This may be useful for your Trumba users if you decide events on that specific calendar will not use event registration or you just want to simplify the Event Edit screen by removing the Event Registration tab. To locate this setting, select a calendar from within the Publisher account and click Calendar Settings. Locate the Enabled Features section and by default Allow event registration is set to Yes. To hide the Event Registration tab, set this to No and then click OK. When this setting is set to "No" on a calendar, the “Event Registration” tab is removed from the event informati
  3. The Trumba Event Actions web app has a touch-friendly responsive design for mobile and desktop environments and personalized accounts for calendar visitors. This covers all areas of calendar visitor interaction including event actions, event registration, calendar subscriptions and event submission. Visitors can sign in using Facebook, Google, Windows, Trumba, or Single Sign On accounts and see a personalized list of events they have interacted with or submitted. The 4 videos below provide an overview of the new features and the upgrade process. Introduction Event Regist
  4. There can be a few reasons why your Trumba spud code will not render correctly. Here are a few issues we have come across and the solutions that may help you resolve the issue. Issue: Trumba spud code renders correctly when you are logged in (WordPress site), however, if you are logged out or on incognito, the spud code cannot be rendered. Saw this in WordPress version 5.4.2 Solution: Check to see if you have a caching plugin (SG Optimizer from my webhost Siteground) that combines all javascript files to load the pages quicker. Disable that function of SG Optimizer, and all the Trumb
  5. The Trumba interface does not allow the date formats to be configurable, so you will always see the dates as MM/DD. When you publish any calendar, the calendars and all other promotion spuds and feeds do allow you to set a date and time format.
  6. Any styling to the Trumba spuds/widgets you will need to set within the Trumba interface and unfortunately what you are attempting to do outside of what we can support. All of the Trumba widgets/spuds have extension customization options with Settings & Sytles. If, when you are setting up and customizing the widgets and you feel a setting is missing, please contact Support and we can see if we can get that setting added.
  7. For your third filter, value, this is not appearing as there are no current events that have been tagged with that category. The Filter/Search cache we use is set to look 12 months into the past and 24 months into the future. I checked your events and the last event tagged with that third category is out of the current date range for the filter cache, so it has fallen out of range for the filter to pick up this in the Filter. There is a way to bypass this cache but it will slow down your search and filtering. On your account you can select your published calendar and click Publish Setting
  8. Yes! Here is additional information on how to customize the email banner and footer within the email templates for your published calendars. Here is another help topic that outlines more customization options, including how to add event images to the calendar emails.
  9. Conditional registration questions lets you conditionally show a registration question based on the value of another question. This is useful when there are questions that only need to be answered if a prior question was answered a particular way.
  10. When setting up custom fields, the field descriptions can display as both a hover or visually on the event edit form and/or the event submission form. This will help publishers better communicate custom field meanings to editors and event submitters.
  11. If you publish schedules that site visitors often want to print, it's a good idea to set up a print view. Set-up options include adding a banner image to the top of print view, showing the calendar name in the header, and showing the print date/time in the footer.
  12. Cloning a control or promotion spud means making an exact copy of the spud. The clone preserves all of the original spud's settings and styles. When you want to create an almost identical copy of a spud, cloning saves you from having to go through the spud customization process all over again. You can just tweak the few settings and styles you want to change. https://www.trumba.com/help/publish/pub_clonespud.aspx
  13. In my attempts to build a mobile web app to wrap around the Trumba mobile view spud I have discovered that the Trumba script and the jQuery-Mobile JavaScript conflict and won't allow click-through on an event for the details view. Solution: The problem is the browser history and the JQuery mobile framework don't get along. You can fix this by disabling the browser history by putting the following before the first spuds.js reference: <script type="text/javascript">var TrumbaDisableBrowserHistory =true;</script>
  14. The Event Slider promotion spud is available on all Trumba Connect accounts. The Event Slider presents a specified number of events as a scrolling slide show. We allow horizontal and vertical displays as well as a fade option. You can find this promotion spud by going to Publish>Promotion Spuds tab and then select Add a Promotion Spud. Here is a link to a more detailed help topic.
  15. When you set up an event with registration, you will notice both Standard Invitation and Basic Form by default. When you use the Standard Invitation, use caution when selecting this form as this form DOES NOT send out an event registration confirmation email to the registrant. The Standard Invitation is used by some users when they do not want a registration confirmation email to be sent to the person after they register for the event. This is by design for that specific registration form. You can either use the Basic Form, which requires the attendee Name and Email Address, or if you hav
  16. By default the Name and Email address fields are required for registration as this is how Trumba tracks the registrant and allows an email confirmation to be sent to that registrant as well as notify the registrant if the event is cancelled. There is an option on the Event Registration tab to make the Name and Email Address fields optional. You can also modify the Your Name and Your Email address label for the published calendar by going to Publish Settings>Publish Settings tab and the select the Edit EA Settings button. MORE INFORMATION: Set up Event Registration
  17. Setting up the two different events may be a good option and set up the Invitation for members to avoid having non-members signing up a member. You then have to manage two different events instead of one. If you set up one event to manage both members and non-members, you can set up the payment to show the member price and non-member price and they select the option. As people register you will see the email confirmations from people come through and you could monitor the registration responses and if you spot a person who registers as a member and they are a non-member, you could then contact
  18. A red X on an envelope next to an email address indicates that the email address owner opted out of receiving email messages sent from the current calendar or from Trumba in general. If you would like to opt back in, you can contact Trumba Support and we can opt your email back in. How do I remove addresses from my calendar distribution list? Any email address that has that red X on an envelope icon will not be sent an email. The person who owns the email address has opted out from receiving emails from Trumba. We do not remove that email address from your distribution lis
  19. An email address with two red exclamation points is an address to which Trumba.com tried to deliver email and failed on the third attempt. This could mean the address is invalid or that email from Trumba is being treated as spam. How do I remove invalid addresses from my distribution lists? Can I increase the likelihood that my calendar and event emails will not be treated as spam? If you know that a flagged email address is valid, you can provide the address owner with information about how to get their Internet Service Provider to stop treating Trumba email messages
  20. You can promote your current day's or week's events in your lobby or other high-traffic location by customizing promotion spuds to create effective digital signage displays. To provide event-driven digital signage, all you need is a computer monitor or other device that displays HTML-formatted content and a promotion spud customized to make event information visible at a reasonable distance. I'd like to know which promotion spuds to use and how to customize them. Tip If you have a digital signage system that does not display HTML-formatted content, you can generate a display fro
  21. Whether you've done nothing to make your website mobile friendly, fully implemented a mobile-responsive site, or created a separate site for mobile users, you can optimize your Trumba calendars for mobile. For each calendar you publish, the Calendar Spuds tab in the Publishing Control Panel automatically includes a Mobile Table spud. The Mobile Table's calendar and event detail views are designed to reflect best practices from existing mobile-optimized Trumba calendars. Mobile Table view is similar to the Classic Table main calendar view except that the mobile view's default settings
  22. Trumba spuds are cached for 10 minutes. That is, a version of the webpage containing the spuds gets stored on your local computer so the browser can open it more quickly than it could by returning to the original webpage. If you make and save changes to events and/or spuds and you see those changes when you preview in Trumba Connect, the changes will appear on your live site. You don't have to re-embed the spud code. If you're not seeing the changes on your live site, try this: Wait ten or so minutes (sometimes a little longer if you're testing spuds on a staging site)
  23. Support for UTF-8 character encoding is built in to Trumba Connect. In all of the fields where you provide text, you can type non-English characters, including double-byte characters typical of many Asian languages. This means that you have a lot of leeway in tailoring your calendar visitors' experiences to reflect the languages they speak. Note While you can use non-English characters in text you provide, there are many Trumba Connect user interface elements that will always be in English. MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/languagesupport.aspx
  24. One person's repeating event is another person's ongoing event. If a multi-day event takes place over the course of several days, doesn't it repeat? Isn't it ongoing? These terms for describing event types are fuzzy at best and they can mean different things to different people. When it comes to creating events that work the way you expect them to, however, it doesn't matter what those event type terms mean to you personally. What does matter is for you to understand how Trumba defines repeating, multi-day, and ongoing. That's what you learn here. Repeating events Repeati
  25. Sometimes after you type or paste a URL or email address into a Web link or Email field in the Add/Edit Event or other form, you see an error message that looks similar to this: If the URL or email address looks perfectly valid and you still see the error message, the problem is almost always an extra space at the end. Click your cursor to the far right of the Web link or email field, and then press Backspace to eliminate any stray space character. Click outside the field. The error disappears.
