Event Calendar

When using the Event Calendar:

  • The calendar displays Events for the selected Campus (see Event Type > Visibility below to customize).
  • Events are sorted by Start Date.
  • Navigate from month to month using the arrows or by swiping right or left.
  • Select a date to see a list of Events on that day.
  • Note the number of dots under a date indicating the volume of Events that day.
  • Tap on a listed Event to see Event details.
  • Note the color of dots on the listed Events indicating Event Type (see Event Type > Colors below to customize).

Search for Event

To search for an Event from the Event Calendar:

  1. Tap on the Search icon.
  2. If desired, change the All Congregation slide bar to on (green) to search among all Congregations.
  3. Enter search terms. (Search automatically includes wildcard before and after - "contains" rather than "starts with". The % acts as a wildcard.)
  4. Tap Search.
  5. Review results.
  6. Tap on desired Event to see Event details.

The search will start once the third character is entered. The search period is a pre-set filter for results from the last month from current date to all available future events.

To start a new search, tap Cancel and start fresh.

Event Details

The Event detail screen includes:

  • The name of the Event.
  • The Event Type.
  • The number of people registered (and expected)
  • The start and end date and times.
  • A button to "Add to my calendar"
    • Clicking this button will add the Event details to the default calendar app on your device.
    • If the Event is already on your calendar, the button will read "Remove from my calendar".
  • The image associated with the Event (attached to the Event record in the Platform)
