NEW Calendar Widgets are available!
The NEW! Calendar extension offers several widgets for showcasing events on group Overview pages within Thinkfinity Community.
The Event Calendar Widget displays events on a month-by-month basis, within a navigable calendar, and it can be displayed within a group Overview page.
--Small View: The small view will show all events for the current month in a list format, grouped by day. Selecting an event will display its details.
--Large View: This widget offers a flexible way to show events to group members who visit the group, as it will bring events to their attention right away.
The Upcoming Events Widget will show a configurable number of events that have not yet occurred. An event will disappear from the widget once it has ended. Selecting a listed event will take you to the event's detail page. The widget can be displayed on the group's Overview page.
The Event View Widget, like the Document View Widget, presents a single event. It shows most of the information available when viewing the event directly, leaving out some extraneous details, as well as No, Maybe, and Awaiting responses. You can RSVP to the event, if permitted, by selecting the RSVP button at the bottom of the widget.
The Tagged Event Widget looks just like the Event View Widget, but the event it displays will vary over time. The widget will display the next event with a specific tag. Once that event has ended, the next event will be displayed. This is useful for communities that feature a series of similar events.
If you try a Calendar Event widget in your group, please tell us what you learn.
