Tendenci's Events Module includes a full-featured Calendar of Events where your site visitors can find your upcoming events to view, search, and filter by type and then register.
This Help File will explain the features available on the Events Calendar so you can set-up and customize your website's Calendar.
Tendenci's Events Module offers two primary Views of your upcoming Events: the Calendar View and the List View.
The Calendar view is the default view set-up for your website when you click to go to "Events" from your site's navigation menu and the Tendenci Nav. This view shows you and your site visitors the current month and any upcoming events. Here is a screenshot of a Tendenci Site Calendar as an example and you can go to the live Tendenci Calendar to try out some of the non-superuser functions. Recent additions to the newest T11 events calendar include dropdown search options for event dates, key words, groups and types:
Look for these features from your calendar view to access the different Events Module content on your website:
You'll find the "Events" menu in the Tendenci nav with a list of options.
From here you can edit the event, email registrants to alert them of any last minute changes, run a roster to use at event check-in, and many other features to help you easily manage your event.
Event Type Filters - T7 Sites
Your Event Types will be listed on the right hand side of the monthly calendar *on your T7 Site* and are clickable to sort events by a single event type in the month view. When you first create your Tendenci website, the list of Event Types will only have "All Events". When you create a new event type, it will automatically be added to the Event Type list on your monthly calendar view.
Site visitors can click on "All Events" to view all of the different events in the monthly calendar view for your organization. For organizations with several events each week or even each day, your event calendar can start to look really crowded. By using the Event Types to label your Events, you help your visitors find the specific events they are most interested in quickly and easily.
Your monthly calendar view will show individual events that are color-coded based on your Event Type color selections. If you mouseover an individual event, the full title of the event will pop-up and you can click on the event to go to the Event's description and registration page. You can add new individual events from your Calendar of events, but you will need to click on an individual event and go to that event's description page in order to edit the event.
Specific Day View
If you have several events in one day, the Month view could start to look a little crowded. That's why Tendenci includes a List view for each day of the month. To go to the list view for a specific date, click on the numerical day of the month on the calendar.
The URL format for the a single day's list view is: https://www.yourwebsite.com/events/year/month/day.
Events List View
The List View (or Search view, as it is also sometimes referenced), displays a searchable list view of your upcoming events. If you have multiple events going on everyday - you'll probably want to send your site visitors to the List View instead of the Calendar View.
If your organization has multiple chapters that are all using your events calendar to promote events or you often list different community events on your calendar then you'll find the List View more useful for displaying and searching Events. Recent additions to the newest T11 events list view include dropdown search options for event start and end dates, title, groups and types:
List View Features
The List View has a different format from the Calendar view, but still functions basically the same. At the top of the list view, your site visitors can search for events by date and type or use the search bar to search all events.
Just click on any event's search results title to go to the Event's description page with registration information.
