Set up event actions
If Event Actions are enabled on a published Trumba® Connect calendar, visitors to the calendar can stay connected with events by taking a variety of actions.
For example, visitors can add events to their personal calendars, forward event information to friends, set up event email and text message reminders, and more.
After you publish a calendar, you can customize event actions settings in a few different ways:
For most calendar views, the default setting lets visitors perform an event action on multiple events at a time.
For example, a visitor can select three events and then click Add to My Calendar to add all three events simultaneously.
You can switch the event actions setting so that visitors can take action with only one event at a time. Or, you can turn off event actions altogether.
TipThe multiple-versus-single event actions setting is not available for the following views: Linear Grid, List by Month, Maps, News, and Photo Events. Visitors can still take actions on single events displayed in these views either from the calendar itself or in event detail view.
To set the multiple-versus-single event action option
In addition to calendar-view level event action settings, you also have access to global settings that affect event actions across views.
With these global settings, you control the display of information and options in the window visitors open after they click an event action link.
To customize global event actions settings
You can add banners, logos, and custom colors to Events Actions pages to brand them for your organization.
Note Get more information about branded Event Actions pages by contacting your Trumba Sales representative.
Event Actions pages are responsive to the size of the browser window in which they're viewed. This means that the Event Actions page that mobile phone users see is laid out differently from the Event Actions page that tablet and computer users see.
If you decide to brand your event action pages, provide Trumba with two different images: a banner or large image for the larger page layout and a smaller image, such as a logo, for the mobile phone page layout.
Tip Maximum width for the banner image is 735 pixels. Maximum width for the mobile image is 320 pixels. Recommended height for both images is between 50 and 100 pixels.
The page automatically builds its color scheme from the colors in the images you provide.
Let visitors act on multiple events
If most of your events occur only once and you expect the typical visitor to be interested in more than one event, it makes sense to let visitors act on multiple events.
This published calendar shows how Event Action options look when visitors can select multiple events at a time.
Let visitors act on only one event at a time
If many events on your calendar occur at more than one time (for example, you offer the same workshop, seminar, or performance a number of different times), it probably makes the most sense to let visitors act only on single events.
This published calendar shows how Event Action options look when visitors can select only one event at a time.
Control which actions appear in event detail views
Every event has an event detail view. You can control whether or not the core event actions (such as Add to My Calendar and Forward to Friends) show up in the detail view. And, you have the option of showing additional actions, such as posting to Facebook and Twitter.
For example, in the following event detail, visitors have access to the core event actions, and they can post the event information to Facebook or Twitter, copy a permanent URL to the event details page, and download a QR code image file.
To learn more about controlling the event detail view action display, see Event detail views.
