  1. You can use URL parameters to override many of the publishing settings that you choose in the Trumba editing environment. For example, you can: Hide some of the mix-ins by default. Provide links that display common search results. Display a filtered view by default. Display the calendar always with a particular date or event first. Here is a link to a help topic with more information on: The syntax for using parameters in URLs The syntax for using parameters in spud code The available parameters
  2. Set up an event specific notice that is included in the registration confirmation email. This is useful if you want to provide additional information about the event such as a meeting ID and number but only to a person who has registered for an event. Within your event that includes event registration click the Event Registration tab. Notice the option on the left to “Set registration success message”. A popup window will appear where more details can be entered. When a person registers for the event, the Registration Confirmation email will contain the specific de
  3. You can use the PicMonkey online image editor to edit your Trumba images. PicMonkey provides many editing functions. The PicMonkey edit link is found on the Trumba Update Image popup which can be accessed through the Edit link next to image fields. Within Trumba, the Images tab can also be selected in the upper left corner where images can also be selected and edited. NOTE: Flash Player will be discontinued in Chrome as of December 2020. PicMonkey will also be discontinued within Trumba Connect and Trumba Professional with the release of T2, the new Trumba user interface on July 1, 2020.
  4. Trumba has the ability to create "QR Codes" that link to event and object detail views. A QR Code is a bar code image that can be scanned by smart phones to navigate to a web page without having to type the address. A small new icon link in the lower right corner of event detail views provides access to the QR Code image.
  5. The HTML Editor is only available for Trumba Connect account holders and is available for the Description field as well as any multi-text custom field that is created. The HTML Editor is also available for the Email templates for Trumba Connect accounts. The HTML Editor makes it easy to apply basic formatting and insert web links, images and more to the email headers and footers. We've always supported basic HTML and now the HTML Editor makes creating that HTML much easier. For more information see How to use the HTML editor.
  6. Paid event registration feature supports Higher One (formerly CASHNet Payment Processing), which is used by many higher education institutions. See Trumba Paid Registration and HigherOne/CASHNet Payment Gateway Setup for more information.
  7. Trumba has joined the InCommon Federation as a partner, sponsored by University of Washington. InCommon provides a secure trust fabric for research and higher ed, operating an identity management federation and more. Leveraging our Single Sign-On feature is easy and automatic for InCommon members. See the press release for more information.
  8. You can include payment options on invitation-only or open-invitation events. To implement paid registration, you follow these steps: Contact Trumba to request that paid registration features be enabled on your Trumba® Connect account. Learn about the payment process. Determine which payment methods to offer and compare the processes from the visitor’s perspective. Link your Trumba account with your merchant account. Enable payment and refund options on events. If you want to accept payments for events that your visitors register for, you need to establish a p
  9. To better match the design of your site or just because you prefer it, you can customize event and object detail popups and some control and promotion spuds by rounding the border corners. Here is a link to a help topic if you think you may be interested in setting this up for your site: https://www.trumba.com/help/publish/pub_roundcorners.aspx
  10. You can create date icons for use with Promotion Spuds and Tile calendar view. This can create more visual interest and make the date of the event more visible: When designing date icons, you can start from a default design and customize background and border colors, fonts, and more to match your brand identity. Or, you can upload your own date icon image and customize the month, date, and day of week text. You can create an unlimited number of date icons so you have a library of multi-colored date icons that can be used on different promotion spuds and the Tile calend
  11. Trumba spuds cannot be embedded within an email as they are typically stripped out. Trumba spud code is javascript based and email clients will typically strip that out as it detects it as a possible virus, which it isn't. If you set up a digest email within Trumba, you can set these up to be sent out to include the next week, two weeks, next month or all future events. Visitors who want to stay updated about new events can subscribe to your published calendars. https://www.trumba.com/help/subscribe.aspx
  12. The search will scan all events looking for those keywords and not the specific phrase, so you will get the specific phrase as well as any events that match the keywords. If you want to pull just the phrase, you may want to set up a Filter View, this way you can create a Filter View called Contemporary Book Discussion (if that phrase is the description of the event OR a value in a custom field). MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/api/urlparameters.aspx
  13. The Location Search spud supports automatically detecting the visitor's location when searching for nearby events. This feature is enabled on mobile devices but can also be enabled for desktop computers. See the Location Search spuds help topic for more information.
  14. Trumba offers Google Drive integration (Link to Google Drive files). Here is a help topic with more details on how this works: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/attachments.aspx as Trumba users can attach Word docs, PDFs, etc by uploading those docs to their Google Drive and then linking to these within the Trumba event. Only images can be embedded with an event, while other non-image formats must be linked.
  15. Trumba offers Custom Font support for Adobe® Typekit, Adobe Edge Web Fonts, or Google Fonts.
  16. Trumba supports both Facebook and Disqus Comments. Here is a help topic with more details for you: on how to set this up within your account: https://www.trumba.com/help/publish/pub_facebookcomments.aspx
  17. We do offer these types of feeds: RSS, XML, CSV, iCal and JSON. What you can do is select the Published calendar from your Trumba account and then select Publish Settings and then select the Feeds tab on the next page. From here you can see the feeds settings and each feed has Edit Settings & Styles that you can control the settings. Here is a link to help topic on how you can also customize the feeds. You can also export your calendars from Trumba out to an ICS or CSV format.
  18. Include HTML This setting is included with the following feeds: JSON, RSS, XML (Atom) and iCal. This setting allows HTML to be turned off in the feeds, and mainly for iCal feeds since programs like Outlook do not recognize the HTML and display the HTML code instead of formatted text. The default feed setting is set to Yes. These settings can be found under Publish>Feeds tab and then Edit Settings & Styles for each feed. You can also override the default setting using the HTML URL parameter. For example https://www.trumba.com/calendars/concerts.rss?html=0 will output the RSS fe
  19. We also have functionality that allows you to change your calendar colors within the Trumba editing environment by changing the existing 24-colors that are in the default palette with specific HEX color values that you can specify. To the right of the calendar you can click the blue drop down arrow and then select Edit Colors. Here is a help topic with additional information: https://www.trumba.com/help/sml_pub_colorsee.aspx
  20. When you see RSS Feed Served within the Publisher Dashboard, this is based on the number of people/visitors that have subscribed to your RSS feed for a published calendar and the number of times the feeds have been sent to those subscribers. This does not mean these are unique visitors or subscribers. Within their RSS Readers, they can decide the frequency in which the feeds get refreshed/served to them. Sounds like some of them have set their frequency quite high causing your stats to be higher than expected. You may have a RSS feed for example that powers your mobile app. If the app is pu
  21. Trumba supports the creation of a wait list for event registration. When a wait list is created, the Trumba account holder can either manually invite others to register who are on the wait list when one or more seats open up for the event if an attendee cancels or the wait list can be set up to Auto-Invite. This option automatically invites people from a wait list instead of manually inviting them to register if one or more openings are available for your event. Here are a few help topics that go into a few more details on setting this up. SET UP EVENT REGISTRATION | MANAGE EVENT REGISTRA
  22. If you have a mobile website designed for tablets and phones, you can easily create a version of your events calendar optimized for that site using the Mobile Table calendar view spud. The Mobile Table view has been pre-configured to display well on smaller mobile screens. But, as with other calendar views, you can customize the view to suit your specific needs. Here is a link to help topic for more details.
  23. When customizing colors in the Publishing Control Panel, a popup color picker lets you select from a palette of top used colors and specify color in HEX, RGB or HSV formats. You can even upload your own image and the color picker will display a custom palette of the top colors in the image. See Get the most out of the Color Picker for more information.
  24. Currently the Classic Table, List and Tile calendar views along with a the Photo Upcoming, Event Slider, and Upcoming Date table Promotion Spud allow you to control the fields that display. So on these views you can option show the Summary custom field and not the Description field. There is not an option currently to control the fields that appear on the event detail views. Currently all published fields will display on the Event Details page. You may want to also consider not creating a Summary custom field. Instead, you may be able to reserve and use the built-in Description field as y
  25. Trumba allows you to use your own custom registration icons for “Sign Up”, “Wait List” and “Event is Full” buttons. Because you customize buttons on a calendar-view-by-calendar-view basis, each view can use its own set of buttons if you like. NOTE: These calendar views do not support event registration buttons: Classic Month, Classic Multi-Week, News, Map, and Linear Grid. You are familiar with the default/basic registration buttons such as "Sign Up": You can enhance your calendar views and create a more visible registration button for Sign Up, Wait List and Event is Full. Here is an
