Link directly to event and calendar action pages
If you want to promote a specific event or encourage a targeted audience to register for an event you're sponsoring, you can provide a link that bypasses the main calendar and opens the event's Event Actions page directly.
You can also provide visitors with a direct link to the page where they subscribe to your calendar email or to its RSS, iCal, or Atom feed.
Find and copy links to event actions pages
Note Event actions links are created at the time you save an event. To find an event actions link, you have to open an event that you already created and saved.
To find and copy an event actions link
- In the Trumba editing environment, display the published calendar that contains the event you want people to take actions on. Click the event description to open the edit event form.
- At the bottom of the form, below the blue buttons, you'll see the URL that opens the Event Actions page for this event.
The URL looks a little different depending upon whether or not you set up registration for the event.
URL for an event without registration
URL for an event with registration
- Test the link by clicking the URL.
Testing the link is important The URL is based on the current publication selected in the editing environment. That publication's settings determine the fields and event actions displayed and the overall appearance of the event actions page. If the event actions page doesn't look the way you expect, close the edit event form and switch the current publication.
- When you're satisfied with the event actions page, select and copy the URL from the bottom of the edit event form, and then paste the link into an email message or webpage.
For example, your link might look like this:
e32=8avg2z9djmkfvuj6c2eyamebn1">Add this incredible event to your online calendar right now!</a>
Create links to calendar email and feed subscription pages
To provide a calendar email or RSS, iCal, or Atom feed subscription link, use this URL:
http://eventactions.com/ea.aspx?subscribe=your calendar's web name
Your link might look something like this (where ourevents is your calendar's web name):
<a href="http://eventactions.com/ea.aspx?subscribe=ourevents">Subscribe to our weekly calendar email updates!</a>
