  1. There is not a way to do this from the visitor side, however most browsers allow the users to zoom in to webpages which will make the content larger. Within all Trumba spuds (Calendars, Control, and Promotion spuds), there are settings for every spud where you can control the font size for event titles, dates, data and more.
  2. To change the default background color for the current day, you can set a global setting under Publish>Publish Settings>Edit Styles & Icons. You can also change the current day for the Datefinder Promotion Spud by selecting the Promotion Spuds tab and clicking Edit Settings & Styles for that promotion spud. For calendar views, you can also change the current day background color for Classic Month, Multi-Week, Day and the Week calendar views.
  3. What may have happened is that when you click Publish>Publish Settings tab, you will see Edit Calendar Colors to the right. On this tab, you have the option to include Calendars Yes/No and if this is set to No, Trumba will honor the default link and hover colors that have been set in your global colors located under Publish>Publish Settings>Edit Styles & Icons.
  4. At the moment we offer two Subscription (Digest) Email templates. You can locate the two templates on your Trumba Publisher account by selecting Publish>Email tab. https://www.trumba.com/help/email/email_custevent.aspx
  5. In the Calendars list, the calendars are listed alphabetically, so the only way to change the order would be to change the name or add underscores or some kind of punctuation to the beginning of a calendar that you wanted to be at the top or use a space in front of a calendar name to move it to the top. One trick is to change the calendar name by adding a space in front of the calendar name and that will move it to the top of your calendar list.
  6. Once an event is set up in a repeating pattern, there is not a way to break them apart into single/independent events. You could create a new calendar and move that repeating event to that new calendar. You can then export that calendar to Excel as that will break the events and make them independent events. You can then delete that repeating event from the new calendar and then import the file either into this new calendar (and then move the events to your live calendar once you have reviewed the events) or into your live calendar. You would then want to delete that repeating event so the calendar does not show both the new events and the repeating version of the events. What you may want to do instead is keep this event in the repeating pattern and now just edit each event separately and prior to saving the event, just make sure you click on the radio button for Only this event and then click OK. This way the changes you make only apply to this one event in the entire repeating pattern.
  7. The web link field does require a URL and does not support the HREF tag. Instead what you can do is in the Description field or any other multi-text custom field, you can use the HTML editor and click the Insert Link option or select the Source button. From here you can use the HREF tag and some other basic HTML tags.
  8. As you've discovered, it is sometimes a tricky puzzle to coordinate the paging, grouping, and template to get what you want. I *think* I can give you an alternative for your first issue at least. From the behavior your describing, it almost sounds like you have the paging set to Current Group and grouping set to something other than Day? What if you have the paging set differently? (Keep the Show in all relevant groups box checked.) I believe that in the list-based templates, the next event should be at the top in most cases (setting paging to Current Group and grouping to, say, Month, is the only way I've been able to override that default behavior). But let me know if you just can't get it to work that way and other settings you've tried. About #2, instead of creating an all-day repeating event that repeats daily for 31 days, what if you created a single-occurring event and set the duration to 31 days?
  9. The features you're thinking of aren't really what Trumba does well. The way you'd schedule a meeting in Trumba would be to create an event and then attach registration/sign-up for this event. Each person would then have to register for this event and after they have registered for the event, they can add the event to their Outlook calendar. We do not have a free/busy feature that will allow you to see others' available time. You could set up sharing with everyone to see others' calendars, but it would require purchasing a Trumba Editor account for each person in your group, and that could add up. Our current focus is in providing a way for people to publish events to the Web for public (or select audience) consumption, and to provide a way to integrate our active calendar into your own web site.
  10. When you go to Edit Settings & Styles for the Upcoming Events Promotion Spud, select the Styles tab. At the bottom of this page is the FOOTER section and here is the area where you can change the background color and border to transparent or just type in the word transparent to replace the HEX color value:
  11. You can add a column in an Excel spreadsheet that designates the calendar to put the event on when importing. The catch, though, is that the calendar that you import the events into must be a parent calendar of the existing calendars into which you want the events imported. Here's how it works: In Excel, to the right of the event description column, create a new column called Calendar. For each event, enter the name of the calendar you want it to be placed on. Save the file as an .CSV or .XLS file Import the file into Trumba, and specify to import into an existing calendar that is the parent of all of the calendars on which you want the events. In the field mapping step, for the Calendar field, the default value is Calendar. Select Multiple Calendars from the drop-down list. When you click next, the preview summary lists the calendars on which the events will be placed. If in step 2 of the Import wizard you didn't select a calendar that already exists as the parent of these calendars, Trumba will create new calendars upon the import.
  12. If you think you may need to work with events in multiple time zones, please contact Trumba Support and we can enable a time zone setting on your account that will allow you to edit the calendar settings and enable event based time zones allowing you to easily add an event in another time zone without having to have multiple calendars each based on a time zone. Once you start to have events in multiple times zone on a calendar, the published calendar will display all events in the default time zone of the calendar. What you will also want to do is set up the Time Zone Picker Control spud and embed this on the same page as the Main calendar, this way the site visitor can first select their time zone and the calendar will then refresh and display the events in that time zone.
  13. The RSS feed settings have the option to Include xCal data. You can find this setting by selecting your published calendar and select Publish>Feeds tab. From here, select Edit Settings & Styles for the RSS feed. Now you can select Yes for Include xCal data: Another way to include xCal data with your RSS feed is to manually add xcal=1 to an RSS feed to include xCal-namespace data. EXAMPLE: https://www.trumba.com/calendars/webname.rss?xcal=1
  14. You're right that, just as someone could "borrow" any kind of content from any public web site, it is possible for someone to embed your calendar spuds in their own web pages if they know what Trumba is and what to do with the code. In many cases, people find this to be a great feature, because they can advertise their events on others' sites. The spuds still lead to your calendar, where you can clarify who's responsible for publishing the events. You might want to take a look at our Terms of Use. The info there might help answer your question. To add a bit more, even if someone does embed your spuds, they can't actually edit your calendar. They can subscribe to it, but they couldn't do anything useful but view the events. Even if they tried to update the calendar, as soon as the calendar refreshed, their changes would be gone. Similarly, if they download and import a .ics file of your calendar, they break the connection to your calendar, and even if they republish, your updates don't propagate to their version of it.
  15. Yes, Trumba supports Paid Registration for events. Here is a help topic with more details.
  16. You attach a URL to the image for the Trumba Hosted view. To do this, select your published calendar in Trumba and select Publish>Hosted View tab. Select Edit Settings & Styles and on the Settings tab there is a Photo link URL field where you can enter in the URL for your website for the redirect when a person clicks on the logo you have attached to the Hosted View:
  17. An address could be flagged for any number of reasons, and one possibility is the one you suggested. Another is that the recipient's email client software has strict settings about what is allowed through. Maybe another roadblock possibility could be at the point of entry to the organization's network. I don't have in-depth experience with email servers and the like, but I can take this address to someone who does and see if we can find anything. You might also want to ask the same question at the other end.
  18. One of the most powerful benefits of using Trumba is the freedom it gives you to present and promote your events throughout your website in the way that works best for you and your audience. While we currently do not support CSS Style Sheets, there are numerous settings for every calendar view, control spud and promotion spud that you can set within the application, from custom fonts, font sizes, link and link hover colors and more!

  19. When using the Trumba Address Book, you can create Groups to organize email addresses. https://www.trumba.com/help/trumbacontacts.aspx For the "To Do List", this sounds like more of a calendar that you could set up and called it "To Do List". You can set up a variety of custom fields to match the fields you need. You can then publish this calendar and view it both on the desktop and mobile. Regarding syncing, I do know that we have no plans to add a sync tool for other programs/devices.
  20. On the Publisher account, you can change the start day of the week to be any day of the week by first selecting the calendar in Trumba and then click Calendar Settings. Under the Display Options section locate Week Display Starts and select the preferred day of the week and click OK to save your changes.
  21. The built-in Submitter Name, Email and Phone number fields are hidden fields and are only for the event approver to view in case they need to contact the submitter for additional information before approving the submitted event. What you can do is create your own publishable custom fields for this information such as "Contact Information" and "Ticket Email Address" as these may be different than the submitter information provided.
  22. There isn't a way to edit the recurrence pattern of an existing recurring event. What you can do as an approver of the event is to first Copy the event. When you copy the event, you can remove and/or change the recurrence. Once you have this copied event the way it should appear you can click OK to save this event and then go back and then delete the original submitted event.
  23. If someone opts out and back in, you as the sender don't know. However, if you keep them on your distribution list, they have the choice to opt back in and do receive the email again from the point at which they opt in. If you know that they've opted out and remove them from your distribution list, they won't be able to opt back in, unless you've enabled email subscribing on your published calendar.
  24. You can set this up in one of two ways. The first way is to publish that second calendar and create the promotion spud from that second calendar and embed that on your web page. The second way is to set up a filter view on the top level/main calendar. Your filter view can be based on the Owning Calendar and you then apply that filter view to your promotion spud and it will only display events owned by that sub-calendar. Here is the help topic on setting up Filter Views.
  25. Trumba offers a resource scheduling solution which allows people in either of the following roles to reserve the resources they need for their upcoming events: Event editors working in Trumba. Site visitors submitting events from a public website. This feature is well suited for managing high-demand resources, such as meeting rooms at a library or community center, or shared audio/visual equipment. Please contact Sales for more details.
