Tip of the Week: Post or Update an Event on the Community Calendar

commcalendar1

If you posted an event on the ConnectVA Community Calendar before April 20th, when the new website was launched, you are strongly encouraged to log in to your ConnectVA account to ensure all of your event details are up-to-date, and take advantage of new features – like adding a google map to your event, updating the venue and adding a picture. Whether you are new to ConnectVA or a ConnectVA pro, here is a run-down on how to make your events on the Community Calendar as robust as possible:

How to Post an Event

If you would like to post an event on the ConnectVA Community Calendar, you must be a registered ConnectVA user, and you must be a member-administrator of an Organization. Individuals and Businesses are not eligible to post events.

While logged in, Expand your Dashboard, and click on Add Event:

Add an event on ConnectVA

Add your event details. Be sure to pay close attention to which posting organization you are using if you are a member-administrator of more than one organization.

Add an event on ConnectVA

Enter the appropriate event categories to ensure your event shows up in search results. You may choose more than one category.

Add an event on ConnectVA

Add an event image, such as a flyer, logo, or a photo from a past event or the venue where it will be held.

Add your event on ConnectVA

When you are finished adding your event details, click submit. You now have the option to view, edit, or submit another event. Events are displayed publicly within your Organization Profile in the Directory and in the Community Calendar.

How to Edit an Event

While logged in, with your Dashboard expanded, click on Manage Organization:

You will see your Organization(s) listed and you may click on the Organization’s name to begin editing events:

Locate the Manage tab, and click on Events. You will see any current Events you have, and can edit, copy, or delete events.

If you added your event prior to the new site launch, you specifically may need to edit your venue details. Click on edit, and scroll down to the venue details section.

      Once logged in, Expand your Dashboard, and click on Add Event. Add Event Details, Event Categories, Event Image, Event Time & Date, Venue Details, Event Website, and Event Cost.

      Review your entries and click Submit. You now have the option to View or Edit your Event, or Submit another Event. You have the option to Export your event to a Calendar (and other events) and to Share your Event via social media or e-mail.
