We are very pleased to announce that our events management and scheduling system is now live on the site. We were hoping to have it before our soft-launch last week, but when you start to play with it, we’re pretty confident you’ll agree that it was well worth the wait.
It offers a huge range of features which have all be custom-tailored to best serve the NYCGA Community and the various groups therein. Some of the majors features you’ll find:
- An ‘Upcoming Events’ section in the right sidebar of all pages. This gives you quick access to the next bunch of events on the docket so you don’t miss a thing!
- A detailed “Events” tab. This is the hub of the events system and lets you view all events in the future. You can search for events between any date range, any category, any group, and even display events only from the groups of which you are currently a member!
- Group Admin and Mods can create new events from the Group>Events tab. After you enter in all the relevant information about your event, it will be added to the calendar and the activity feed will show that you created it. The event creation page allows you lots of flexibility, including recurring event series (for those daily or weekly meetings), Google Maps integration for locations around the city, and a “Location Details” field to describe exactly where in the park you will be meeting, or how to get upstairs at 16 Beaver.
- Entire events stream is available as an RSS feed, making it completely open and transparent with the rest of the web.
