The Event Calendar

The Event Calendar is a web-based calendar that displays all of your live events. The name of the event appears as a clickable link and brings the viewer to your event landing page or, if you didn't create one, to your registration form.

Cancelled events, events in draft status and events that you've manually chosen not to display on the calendar will not appear.

To share your calendar on your webpage, in an email or on a social networking site, you need the calendar's URL: Did you know that we also have an Event Widget you can add to your website or social networks?

Add or Remove Events from the Calendar

When you make your event live, it is automatically displayed on your calendar. 

You can always choose to remove an event from your calendar, but don't worry, you can always add it back later if you change your mind.
  1. Open the dashboard for your event.
  2. Scroll down the page to the Promote your event section.
  3. Check the "Add this event to my calendar" box or uncheck the box to remove it from the calendar.

Note: Only the first day of a multi-day event will display on the calendar.

Events stay on your calendar until you remove them, so it's possible to see the registration page or landing page for completed events if you want to give an idea of the types of events your organization runs.

When you add an event to your calendar, it also enables your registrants to:
  • Share the event on their social networks from the registration confirmation page, after they successfully complete the registration.
  • View the event in the RSS feed from your website.
  • View the event on your website from the 'Attend My Events' Website Widget.

Add the Calendar URL to Your Webpage

The Events Calendar can be embedded into your website so that people will see the calendar without having to click on additional links to open it.

To add the URL to your webpage:
  1. Copy the URL from the Calendar URL field.
  2. Paste the URL into:
  • An email or file and send it to your webmaster.
  • Your webpage's source code. 
    Note: This requires HTML knowledge.
  • The WYSIWYG editor you use to design your webpage, like Dreamweaver or FrontPage.

Note: The style and color of the calendar cannot be modified.

Share the Calendar URL

You can share the link to the calendar in emails and on your social networks, like Facebook. Your contacts will be able to forward or share the link with their friends, improving your reach.

To share the URL in an email or on a social network:

  1. Copy the URL from the Calendar URL field.
  2. Paste the URL into:
  • An event-related email.
  • A social network post or feed.

When your recipient clicks on the URL, it will open a new webpage, displaying your calendar. You can preview what the webpage will look like by clicking the "View Calendar" next to the Calendar URL field.
