  1. Regarding your publishing question, one of the premises of a Trumba calendar is that we offer a way for people to select events and take some type of action on them. In keeping with this premise, at this time, there isn't a way to turn off selecting events. You can edit the settings for each of your calendars by going to Publish Settings>Calendar Spuds tab and then click Edit Settings & Styles for each of your calendar views. Locate the EVENT ACTION section and for Event Action Display, set this from Multiple to None and click OK to save. Select "Multiple" to allow a calendar visitor to work with several events at a time. Select "Single" to limit the visitor to one event at a time. Select "None" to remove the event action from the event display.
  2. Mapping fields on import is very important, and if you are having to do repeated imports, I can see where it would be valuable to save the mapping. I am assuming this is a CSV (Comma separated value file) or Excel file. I wonder if the workaround of exporting a file from Trumba so you can get the field names and taking the time to manually put them at the top of your file, replacing your other labels would be worth the trouble to you as a way to solve for this. Once you have this done once, you can have a blank file and a copy/paste of your data first to your blank file with just the field names prior to import could be a way to avoid the manual remapping. If it is say just one or two fields that you are remapping then the workaround would be too much work, but you have a couple fields, it might be worth the trouble.
  3. By default, link targets open in new browser windows (or tabs, depending upon browser settings). This leaves the event detail page open in its original window so visitors can easily find the calendar again. If that's the link behavior you prefer, leave the target setting just as it is. When you enter text or image in the Description field and then select the text or image and click on Insert Link from the HTML editor, you have the option to set the Target to New Window (_blank), Topmost Window (_top), Parent Window (_parent), <frame> You may want to consider other link target options, especially if you use frames or iframes on your calendar page: New Window (default) The target webpage opens in a new browser window or tab. Topmost Window The target webpage fills the original webpage, replacing the iframe content, if your calendar is in an iframe, or the calendar content if it's not. Visitors use the back button to return to the calendar. Parent Window If your calendar is embedded in an iframe, the target webpage replaces the calendar in the iframe. If your calendar is not in an iframe, the target webpage fills the original webpage. Visitors use the back button to return to the calendar. Named Frame If you have a named frame or iframe on the webpage where the calendar is embedded, the target webpage opens in the named frame/iframe, leaving the calendar visible.
  4. You can add a URL-encoded query string for the calendar template and duration. In this example, the calendar view is 3 Column and to start on September 1, 2020: http://www.yoursite.com/calendar.html?trumbaEmbed=template%3D3columns%26%3D20200901%26duration%3D1d To control the initial mix-in state, we do offer Filter Views. Here is a link to a help topic with more details: https://www.trumba.com/help/filter/pub_filterviews.aspx
  5. When you set up the event and you are inviting people to register and/or using Open Sign up, you can set up a Success Message. In this area is where you can enter in the Concall details and other information that only should be displayed to the person only after they register. Any text added to the Success Message is automatically added to the Registration Confirmation email. MORE INFORMATION: https://www.trumba.com/help/events/eventinvite_how.aspx
  6. You can use the template URL parameter within your main calendar spud code. This sets the main view of a published calendar to one of the 21 views listed on the Publish Settings page. Here is a help topic with more details and the calendar names to use in the spud code. In this example, the main calendar spud code is being forced to display using the List calendar view <script type="text/javascript" src="//www.trumba.com/scripts/spuds.js"></script> <script type="text/javascript"> $Trumba.addSpud( { webName: "calendarname", spudType: "main", url: {template:"list"} }); </script>
  7. As long as each secretary has a Trumba Account, you give out sharing rights for each calendar to each Trumba account holder. The Athletic secretary may only require a Trumba Editor account, so the Campus Secretary would have the Publisher account and would share the Sports calendar with the editor account with the right to "Add, Delete, and Change content". https://www.trumba.com/help/share/sharehowto.aspx
  8. Thanks for posting a possible explanation and clean up idea. From what Larry described it does sound line breaks got copied over somehow.
  9. Within Trumba, all calendars are based on one time zone that you set for that calendar. You can set up Event Based Time Zones, so if your calendar is set to Eastern Time, you can add events from Pacific time. When that Pacific time zone event is added to your Eastern time zone calendar, it will display as happening in Eastern Time. All event times convert automatically to the default time zone of the published calendar. What we also offer is a time zone control spud. The site visitor can then change the time zone to their time zone and the calendar will refresh to display events in their time zone. https://www.trumba.com/help/timezoneswork.aspx https://www.trumba.com/help/timezones_events.aspx https://www.trumba.com/help/timezones.aspx
  10. You can change the webname of a published calendar by going to Publish Settings>Publish Settings tab>Edit Publish Settings. If you have already embedded the Trumba spud code on any websites and you now change the webname, you will need to update the webname for each spud code on your site where you have the spud code embedded. When you first create and publish a calendar, we encourage users to use a webname that is generic enough to not be needed to be changed.
  11. When you publish a Trumba calendar, you will want to update the Calendar Address. By doing this, Trumba can correctly do a redirect back to where you have embedded the main calendar for your published calendar. To update or add the calendar address for your web page, select the published calendar and select Publish>Publish Settings>Edit Publish Settings. From here, locate the Calendar Address field and enter in the full URL for the page where you have embedded the main calendar. Once you save this, all future emails that are sent from your calendar will link to that webpage.
  12. If you're having trouble signing in to your Trumba account: First, verify that you're using the correct email address and password. If your credentials are correct and you still can't sign in, click this link to force a full sign out. Then, try signing in again. If you're still having trouble, please use your browser settings to delete all cookies. Then restart the browser, and try signing in again.

  13. As of May 2016, Trumba requires .NET 1.1. I hope this post will help you find and install .NET 1.1 on this computer.
  14. We do offer an Event Submission Form add-on which is an additional $50 per month that you can include in with your Trumba Connect subscription. This allows you to create an unlimited number of event submission forms from this account. If you would like to add this to your existing account, please contact Trumba Sales at sales@corp.trumba.com
  15. Your message has two great issues: 1) related to how your viewers may need to change time zones to view event and 2) how to best do the data entry as you enter in seminars in different locations. First issue: How can viewers alter the time zone of the published calendar. You said: "I have a calendar that will be viewed by people all over the US, Canada and Australia. Obviously, there are several different time zones involved here." This is good issue to consider. You might want to state at the top of your calendar that this calendar is published in eastern time zone, along with instructions for how to change to another time zone. A published calendar can only be set to one, default time zone. This way all events will be displayed in that time zone. In this scenario we will assume the calendar is set to Eastern. Note: If you would like to allow event based time zones, please contact Trumba Support and they can look at enabling Event Based time zones for your account.This means that if your calendar is set to Eastern and you want to add seminars in Colorado, by having event based time zone enabled allows you to enter the seminar in Colorado by entering the event time as 8am-4pm in Mountain time. When you save the event, it will display on the published calendar as 10am-6pm Eastern. With event based time zone, the calendar converts the time for you and adjusts for daylight saving time as appropriate. Second issue: How to best do your data entry for events originating in multiple time zones. You also said: "So, when I say *I* am in Eastern, but I go and fill in information regarding a Seminar in Colorado that is from 8am – 4pm, if they look at it in New Jersey, is it going to show 8-4 Eastern, or CO time?" If you have seminars in a couple different locations, I'd urge you to make a calendar for each location that is set with the appropriate time zone. This would allow you to put the Seminar on the Colorado calendar that is set to Mountain Time and then when you view the events mixed in or published they will be automatically be converted. We also offer Event Based time zones, so instead of creating a calendar per time zone, you keep your published calendar in one time zone (Eastern) but when you add events you will be able to select the time zone of the event and enter in the time the event start in the time zone of the event. The event will still convert and be displayed in the time zone of the published calendar, however you would also embed the TimeZone Control Spud on your published calendar page so the site visitor can select their time zone. The calendar will then refresh and display all of the event times in the time zone selected. I also want to offer you two links to help topics that would be useful: Add time zones to events - https://www.trumba.com/help/timezones_events.aspx About time zones - https://www.trumba.com/help/timezoneswork.html
  16. I have a calendar that will be viewed by people all over the US, Canada and Australia. Obviously, there are several different time zones involved here. So, when I say *I* am in Eastern, but I go and fill in information regarding a seminar in Colorado (Mountain time) that is from 8am – 4pm, if they look at it in New Jersey (Eastern time), is it going to show 8am-4pm Eastern, or 8am-4pm Mountain time? I am confused on this!
  17. The start time and end time drop down selections do allow you to type in minute increments OR you can you the drop down menu that allows 5 minute increments.
  18. When you publish a calendar we don't show months that don't have any events. One way to work around this is to put an event on those months. Holidays, quotes, a "check back later for events on this month", etc. are some ideas for placeholder events.
  19. You can customize each email template for each published calendar to include images in the header and footer. The Calendar email can also be set up to include images. https://www.trumba.com/help/email/email_customhf.aspx
  20. I did a preliminary investigation and, as you say, it appears that myspace does not allow scripts. You can post a link to your calendar, of course. But, perhaps you are hoping to do more than that. I did a bit of looking into various widgets available for use on blogs, and it does appear that many of them use scripts. The only idea I can come up with is to look into whether a blog widget exists that works with myspace, that can accept an RSS or .ICS feed from a published Trumba calendar.
  21. Yes, we do support what we call Filter Views. When you have a custom field set up, such as a list of Regions. When you are adding events, you can tag them by Region. Using Filter Views you can set up a filter view for each region and then every Trumba spud/widget can pull in events based on that filtered view.
  22. When an event is owned by a calendar, that was then deleted, creates "orphan" events. It appears you have tagged that event to Also Show On one or more calendars. The calendar that was deleted still knows that there are events authorized to display on other calendars. So while the owning calendar now displays "Deleted Calendar", what you will need to do is edit the event and under the Also Shows On section, go ahead and tick the checkmark next to the other calendars where these events are also tagged to display and then click OK. To learn more about deleting versus removing, see our Overview: Delete, Remove or Cancel Events Help Topic.
  23. Yes! If you have any questions about Trumba, or if you would like to have a demo of our product, please contact Trumba Sales at sales@corp.trumba.com or call us at 1-800-925-0388 and we would be happy to talk to you about our service and application.
  24. The easiest way to do this is select your top level/parent calendar and then in Trumba select the List view. From here you can perform a Select All and from the drop down menu select Move events to... and then to the right select the sub-calendar you want to move the events and then click Go. You can also change the owning calendar of on event by editing the event and from here change the Owning calendar in the drop down and then click OK to save your changes.
  25. Here are some possible solutions based on your needs: 1. You need your sales folks to just be able to view their own calendar and not make any edits. Solution: A. Publish each individual calendar with a password. Give the sales person the URL and the password for the Trumba Hosted View. If the information is very confidential, it might be wise to tell your folks to not access from a public terminal in a cafe etc. as it's possible someone might be able to use the history information in the browser and access the calendar. B. You could send a weekly email to each individual (and you can schedule this) with their calendar. Further, there is a way to automatically kick off a nightly update email in the event you modify their calendar. 2. You need your sales folks to both edit and view just their own calendar. Solution: You would need to get each person their own Trumba account. There is an expense to this and we would recommend a Trumba Editor account for each user. Once they have their own account you could share just their individual calendar with them with editing rights. They would be able to edit their calendar and not see anyone else's when they sign in with their account credentials. And you would still be able to see everyone's calendar as the main publisher/account holder.
