  1. Hi If you create a calendar that contains the advocacy days meeting events, you can send out a one-time or scheduled calendar email message that contains all future or some time period's worth (for example, 2 weeks' or a month's worth) of these events to people on a distribution list. Recipients of the email can click icons beside the event descriptions to add events they're interested in to their Outlook calendars. You can learn more in this Help topic: Sending events by email Connie
  2. If you actually want the event detail view to open in a page on your site, you want to use the detailBase rather than the teaserBase property on the Main calendar spud. The teaserBase URL is more commonly used on Promotion spuds. So your spud code would like this using the detailBase and not teaserBase: <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "asingularcreation", spudType : "main", detailBase: "http://www.asingularcreation.com/Lists/art-contests.htm" }); </script> You use the detailBase property with a main spud to show event details in another main spud that's embedded in a separate page. NOTE: The teaserBase property works with promotion spuds and allows you to open the event details page from a link in the promotion spud on your own site rather than the Trumba hosted page. You might also want to use the openInNewWindow property to get the event detail to open on your site in a new window. The code would look like this: <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "asingularcreation", spudType : "main", openInNewWindow: "true", detailBase: "http://www.asingularcreation.com/Lists/art-contests.htm" }); </script> MORE INFORMATION: Supported properties for customizing spuds.
  3. Two other calendar views, List and Table, now support images. These two views do allow you to set grouping and paging options, as you requested above. In the Publishing Control Panel, on the Calendar Spuds tab, add the List and/or Table calendar views and then click Edit Settings & Styles to display the image field and control the image size. For the Classic Table view you will first need to add in the Event Image field under the Display Settings area on the General Settings tab and determine the placement in order of preference. Trumba also supports the display of Inline Images, which are images you can embed in the Notes field and any other Multi-line text field that uses the HTML Editor (Trumba Connect accounts only). Inline images are supported in some calendar views (Classic Table and List view) as well as on the event detail view.
  4. Hi Michael. I believe you're asking for the announcement, reminder, and invitation email messages behave the same way as the calendar email messages and reflect the published calendar they originate from rather than the account. It's a good suggestion. I just talked with our developers and we're going to explore making that change. Let me know if I misunderstood what you're requesting. If everything looks like it will work fine and the change goes forward, we'll try to let you know when it's implemented. If you haven't heard anything in a while, please reply to this post. Thanks. Connie
  5. From reading our past exchange, I believe what you wanted to accomplish was sending an invitation to a repeating event and then being able to send reminders in advance of each occurrence. If you have a Trumba Connect account, you can do that now. When you invite people to a repeating event, you have the option of sending them one invitation to the entire series. In this case, the invitees have the option of accepting/declining all occurrences or responding to each occurrence individually. When you set up the invitation, you can also set up event announcements and reminders. You can schedule these announcements/reminders to be sent a certain amount in advance of each occurrence of a repeating event. I said that you have the option of sending announcements/reminders for each occurrence of a repeating event "if you have a Trumba Connect account." To clarify, having a Trumba Connect account means having a "managed account" with us (i.e., your account is at the $99.95/mo. or more pricing level). To learn more about setting the announcements, reminders, and invitations, see Send event announcements, reminders, or invitations.
  6. Hi Hilary. Let me repeat what you're asking just to make sure I'm understanding it correctly. You have a published calendar with festival dates on it for a year. The published calendar is in Month view. You want to add all of the festival dates for the year to your Microsoft Outlook calendar. So you're wondering if you can do that all at once or if you have to add each month separately. If that's a correct statement of your question, the answer is that you can add only one view's worth (in your case, a month) of events at a time to your Outlook calendar. However, there is another approach that will allow you to export all of the events to a file that you can then import into Outlook. Click the iCal link at the top right corner of the calendar to export the events to an .ics file. You can then import that .ics file into Outlook to add all of the festival dates at once. In Outlook, display your calendar. On the File menu, select Import and Export. In the Wizard, select Import an iCalendar (.ics) or vCalendar (.vcs) file. Locate the file and click OK. Decide whether you want to add the events to your current calendar or create a new calendar. If I misunderstood your question, please let me know and we can try again to get you the information you need. Connie Trumba Support
  7. Here's a workaround you might use when you have events that do not have a specific start/end time. Set the event as an All Day event. Then no start or end time shows up. In the Description field of the event, add a note about the start time to let people know when it starts.
  8. If you publish calendars that site visitors often want to print, it's a good idea to set up 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. Here is a link to our Help topic on how to set up a print view that includes an image.
  9. When you type an address in the Location field and then add a map link to the location, a Recent Map Links link appears next to the location field. Rather than typing a repeat location from scratch, you can just choose the map link from the list. The address is filled in and the map link created. The Recent Map Links drop down will save up to 50 mapped locations. You can remove any old or outdated map link by selecting the drop down and click the X next to the address.
  10. Hi Dinobrago, niskypto, and others. I have talked with the developers about this and we are going to make some changes to the time period options for calendar emails. The way it looks like it will work is that, in the future, if you choose 2 weeks worth of events, the email will include events that occur the day after your email is sent and then 2 full weeks from that day. I can't give any specifics about when the changes will be made but the problem is being addressed. Thanks for bringing it up. Connie
  11. Hi Dinobrago. You're right that this is definitely not an ideal solution if you publish your calendar in Week or Month view. The published calendar ends up starting on a day that is very weird for most calendar visitors. I have filed a bug on this. I think you're right that the events sent out should be the NEXT week or two week not the CURRENT week. I'm not sure what the result of this will be but I'll try to post what I hear here. Thanks. Connie
  12. You might also want to try using divs instead of a table to line up your spuds. For example to line up a main calendar spud and search spud, you might use two divs like this: <div style="width:160px;float:left"> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "yourcalendarswebname", spudType : "mix" }); </script> </div> <div style="width:160px;padding-left:180px;"> <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud({ webName: "yourcalendarswebname", spudType : "searchlabeled" }); </script> </div> Where it says yourcalendarswebname just make sure your calendar's name is inserted. You don't have to stick with the exact width or padding amounts that I've added here but this gives you an idea of how you might set up the divs.
  13. You can only share Trumba calendars with other Trumba users whose email address is tied to a Trumba account. You are seeing Can view events as the only option because the person you're sharing with does not have a Trumba account. When you purchase a full Trumba subscription, you can also purchase additional editor accounts for a reduced monthly rate (see our Pricing page). When the person you want to share with has an account in place, you'll be able to see all sharing options.
  14. When you create a new calendar, we do not allow the calendar settings to be copied. However, if you plan to publish multiple calendars that share most of the same published settings and styles, you can copy these settings and styles from one publication to others. Here is a link to a help topic with more details.
  15. Hi Pub Calls Person. I've actually got some really good news about this issue. Our developers got right on this and created a solution. When you click an event description in a published calendar and see the event details, in the lower right corner of the details page, there is a link called Permalink. Clicking this link gives you the URL to the specific event. I hope this takes care of your problems with this issue. Connie
