When you implement Trumba Connect, you may discover some inventive applications of your own.
You've probably heard of widgets, also known as gadgets or docklets. The Trumba term for widget is spud.
We chose the term spud somewhat facetiously as a play on the concept of mashups. A mashup is a web page that brings together content from more than one source. The IT world borrowed the term mashup from pop music. In the music world, it means combining music and vocals from two or more songs to create a new song.
To understand a Trumba spud, think of it as a window that you add to a page on your website (to create your own mashup). What you see through the window is your event data on the Trumba servers. The exact view depends upon the specific spud that you're using.
Because spuds are windows into your hosted data, changes you make in the Trumba Connect editing environment show up immediately on your website.
If you sponsor events that you want to promote to the public or internally, or if you want to serve as the dominant resource for local "go-and-do" information, then Trumba Connect is for you.
Our innovative publishing process and the customizable event widgets it generates make Trumba Connect the ideal choice for a wide range of organizations.
On our customer list, you'll find newspapers and other media organizations, colleges and universities, cities and towns, web development organizations, health clubs, corporations, non-profit organizations, hospitals, museums, and more.

For a very simple implementation, you can go from an event data file to a website calendar within an hour. More complex implementations require decision-making and consultation up front to make sure that you set up your calendar, account, and permissions structures in ways that best support your goals. Contact Sales to learn more about our consulting and training packages.
The Trumba Connect editing environment is intuitive enough for virtually anyone in your organization to use. You can set up a permissions hierarchy that allows you to delegate calendar maintenance to the appropriate personnel while protecting calendar and account settings.
Definitely. Trumba Connect supports deep customization at a detailed level. We offer you all the tools you need to customize the appearance of the calendars and other event widgets you publish so they reflect your brand and integrate into your website.
When your site visitors interact with your Trumba calendar to add events to their own personal calendars or take other actions, they open a Trumba Event Actions window. You can do some basic customization to this window yourself. Or, you can work with Trumba to create a custom-designed skin. Please contact Sales to discuss this custom Event Actions skinning in more detail.
Most likely, you'll want the person who manages your website to set up Trumba Connect, customize your calendars and other event widgets, and embed the widgets into your web pages.
When it comes to calendar maintenance, our editing environment is intuitive enough so that anyone in your organization can keep calendars up to date. Using our permissions hierarchy, you can delegate maintenance to the appropriate personnel while keeping calendar and account settings secure.
