  1. Hi Joe, Sorry about that as there is one additional setting you need to make! Once you have set up your event types to include these predefined fields, you will want to check your published settings. Go to Publish>Publish Settings tab and then select Edit Publish Settings. On this page locate the Publish Settings section and you will see the option to "Honor publish start/end dates". Go ahead and set this to Yes and then click OK. Thanks, Steve
  2. Joe, I was just updating this post as we just released a new update last night so we now have the ability to set an event to have a publish start and end date. This may help you out. What you will need to do is edit your event types and select "Publish end date" and "Publish start date" from the Predefined Fields section and add these to your event type(s). The event would then go live on midnight of the start date and be removed at midnight at the end of the event. We do not have a "start time" or "end time". Thanks, Steve

  4. We offer two Event Details views that you can select from. To allow wrapping of the Description text around an image, what you do is set up your Event Detail to use Event Detail - Enhanced view. The Event Detail option does not allow for text wrapping around the image. When you set up or edit the Event Detail - Enhanced view, on the Settings tab, under Field Settings, you will want to set the Description Location to Above custom fields. Then for the Image position, which is under the Detail Image section, set Image position to Right.
  5. Thanks for this feedback on ways to improve the image library functionality. I know the dev team has long term plans to make this area of the product more robust, and I will be sure this feedback is relayed. As for deleting images that have not been used for a period of time, this is not something we plan on implementing as all event data is owned and controlled by the Trumba account holder. All event data will remain within the account until the account holder deletes the event, images or calendars from their accounts.
  6. Under Define Custom Fields/Define Fields & Objects, when you create and/or edit a custom field, as long as you have checked the option Allow this field to be published, that field will be available for that event template. The field will only display on the published calendar when data is entered for the field. Also, some calendar views may not display all of the custom fields. The event detail view and feeds will always show all custom fields if there is data in those custom fields.
  7. While you can export the registration list from an event that has registration, Trumba does not allow the registration data to be imported back in to a new event.
  8. While we cannot attach files to events (only images can be uploaded and attached, you can link to any file within a weblink field or a free form text field and the Description field. For example, in the Description field (or any other free form text custom field you set up), if you want to link to a PDF or Word document for a conference, you could type in the following text Please <a href="https://www.domain.com/conference.pdf">click here</a> for additional information on this conference. When published, the words "click here" (or whatever text you choose) will be hyperlinked to the PDF file and that file will open and display in a new window. You can also use the web link field to enter in the URL for the file if the file or just enter in the URL in any text field: https://www.domain.com/conference.pdf If you have Trumba Connect, all multi-line text fields, including the Description field have an HTML editor. If you use the editor, it is much easier to attach the links to PDFs, brochures, Word docs, videos, etc. Google Drive is also supported, so you can upload files to a Google Drive and using the HTML editor, link to your files that are stored on Google Drive.
  9. We do not support the embedding of Trumba spuds into an email signature. Even though email programs support HTML, there is currently not reliable support for javascript code snippets in email programs. You could provide a URL to your main calendar within the email signature as an alternative.
  10. What I would recommend for this would be to use a Permalink. By using a Permalink you can embed the URL into a newsletter or email and it will link directly to the event detail page for the specific event. Thanks! Steve Trumba Support

Editors can add, edit and delete events but not publish calendars from their accounts. You can have all calendars be published from one Publisher account and share out one or more calendars with the Editor accounts. Here is a link to our current Pricing page and a chart that compares the features available to both Publishers and Editors, that may help answer any additional pricing Our pricing page describes what you get when paying the monthly fee of $99.95 for Trumba Connect, which is the following: Hosted calendar software and event content management system.

  12. Our only recommendation at this point is to set up these events without putting them as part of a repeating series or manually enter them throughout the year on the months that end up having a fifth Friday.
  13. I am not sure if this will save you much more time, however another idea for you is to use an RSS feed, as this is a very quick and easy way to capture the event data, including images as we just added images to RSS feeds a few weeks ago. To capture the feed, go to Publish and click on the Feeds tab and preview the RSS feed. One can also go to: https://www.trumba.com/calendars/<uniquewebname>.rss to view the RSS feed for any published calendar. With this feed you can copy and paste in to Constant Contact or Word for example and edit further if needed. I noticed that you have opted to hide the Calendar Actions Panel for your main calendar, which when visible, does allow a site visitor the option to subscribe to your RSS feed from your calendar. To show this you can select Publish>Calendar Spuds>and then select Edit Settings & Styles for the Main Calendar spud. From here, select the Calendar Actions Panel and change the Display to Show. Also, if you do decide to use the RSS feed for this purpose, you may notice with you calendar the RSS feed is a little slow to display as it appears there are some rather large images (in pixels) that are included as Event Images within the events on your calendar. Some of the larger ones I spotted are 578px x 392px; 600px x 986px and 568px x 696px, so they will take a few seconds longer to display in the feed. As a tip you may want to reduce those in size prior to importing into Trumba so they are closer to the actual display size you want them to appear on the calendar display.
  14. The calendar (digest) emails are not saved, however if you have customized the message of the email that will remain intact until you update it. You can always click on the Email button and add additional people to the distribution list and then click Send Next Email Now, and you will then be presented with an option to remove existing people from the distribution list for this specific mailing.
  15. When you set up an event that includes registration, the section that states "No registration information exists for this event" will appear until you have people signing up for the event that are providing you the information based on the contents of the registration form that is part of the event. What you also want to do is select the option to have Open Sign Up for the event and/or send invitations to register for this event so people know they need to sign up for the event. When you check "Open sign up for this event" you will see a Sign Up button next to the event title in most calendar views. You may also want to set a registration limit on this event, as well as set the maximum number of guests an attendee can bring to the event. Here are a few links to some Help files that goes into more details on setting up events with Event Registration: MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/eventinvite_how.aspx MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/eventinvite_manage.aspx
  16. Trumba supports international date formats and a variety of time formats, including 24-hour time format.To edit these settings, click on Publish and then select the Calendar Spuds tab and then click Edit Settings & Styles for each of your calendar views. Repeat the same steps for your Promotion spuds and Feeds.Spud Settings - Each spud (calendar views, promotion spuds, feeds) contains format settings for events as well as page headers and group headers when necessary. The default settings for spuds will match the existing format of each spud so you should see minimal changes to existing spud dates and times.Event Actions – Date format settings are available for the Event Action page by selecting Customize Event Actions under the OTHER TASKS section.
  17. Hi Joe, This is a new setting we just released last night Ongoing Events – We added special handling for ongoing events to display dates with a leading phrase such as Ongoing through Jan 1, 20xx. Ongoing events are multi-day events that started in the past but end in the future. The setting lets you omit the past start date and show the event date in a configurable format We appreciate this feedback and we hope to provide more custom settings in the future to control the display. For now, the clients who have been requesting this feature did want the start date to appear, which is why is it currently designed this way Currently this setting will display the events in the order of the start date of the event and they will appear higher in the list of events as they have already started, however I do understand your scenario and is one they did consider. This feature is turned on by default, so if you do not want to use the feature you do have the option to turn it off. We also released a new Date/Time format setting. The What’s New for this week’s release is posted at http://www.trumba.com/connect/webcalendars/whats_new.aspx If anyone has more feedback please let us know as I will be happy to forward on to the development team! regards, Steve Trumba Support
  18. Trumba supports international date formats and a variety of time formats, including 24-hour time format.

  19. We do allow a variety of spud API properties, such as the detaiBase and openInNewWindow spud properties. Here is a link to a Help topic on this: https://www.trumba.com/help/api/spudapi_properties.aspx Add openInNewWindow: "true" in conjunction with the detailBase property to open event details in a new window. When a visitor clicks an event link on the main spud, it jumps to new window displaying the page defined by detailBase to display the event details.
  20. When you are adding an event within Trumba, at the very bottom of the event is a Preview button that you can select to preview what the event will look like. As for spell check, we rely on the web browser you are using when logged in to Trumba for spell check and most web browsers spell check with highlight or underline any words that are misspelled.
  21. At this time this is not a repeating pattern we support. You can set up an alternating repeating event, or you could set this up a a weekly repeating event on Mondays. Once this is set up, view your Trumba editing page in List View and you can now go through and check all of the 1st, 3rd and possibly 5th Mondays for that event that appears and then delete these. This will keep all of the 2nd and 4th Monday events in the repeating pattern.
  22. The Forward to Friends event action email does not contain any images (Event Image or Detail Image), only a link to the event. In order to see the Event Image or Detail Image, the visitor can click the link contained within the email which will redirect them to the Event Detail page where the image will be displayed.
  23. It looks like the “loadNewPage” method is dynamically loading and injecting the calendar.php page into a div on your page. Could you use an iframe to contain the page instead of loading the page into a div?
  24. What I recommend for this type of calendar scenario would be to create a single line of text custom field for each theater. By creating a field for each theater, you can then add in the showtimes for this movie at each appropriate theater: We cannot hide the Start Date/Time fields, so you will want to set this as an All Day event that spans the duration of the movie showing. I would then use the List calendar view as you can hide the Time Span and start to add in all of the theater custom fields. You can also add a <strong> </strong> tag to make the theater appear in bold. By changing the event title font size and making a few more changes, you could get a movie listing similar to this: In addition, you can then create a Filter Control Spud to allow a site visitor to filter by movie title as well as movie theater.
  25. All of the Trumba spuds will confine to the container (DIV, Table, etc) size that you set up on your web page. Another idea for you is to select Publish and then preview the various Calendar spuds, Control Spuds and Promotion Spuds. In the preview window you can resize the window and it will also indicate the width in pixels at the top of the screen so you can get a good sense of what this will look like in a container of that width on your webpage. All spuds can vary depending on the type of calendar view you select and other specific settings you may set for each spud. Unfortunately if you are trying to place a main calendar spud in a container that is only 300 pixels wide you will be limited on what will display. Many of the Control spuds can fit into containers that are less than 200 pixels. If you continue to have an issue with this, feel free to email support@corp.trumba.com and I can take a look at your account and spuds.
