The first step in any Trumba Connect implementation is identifying the combination of event templates, custom fields, and calendars that will best organize and present your events.
The following museum calendar gives you a sense for the powerful and flexible ways in which calendars, templates, and fields work together:
- The museum calendar uses an event template that includes a Categories list-of-choices custom field.
- Event editors use the custom field to assign one or more categories to each event they add.
- Each Categories custom field value has a unique icon assigned. The icons make it easy for visitors to distinguish event types at a glance.
- Enabling Show Icon settings displays the icons (outlined in red) with the main calendar event titles and the categories list in the Search By Categories filter spud.
