AcuWeb™Events

In this tutorial we'll get you acquainted with the features of Acuweb™Events -- one of ten browser-based apps in our fifth generation suite of tools that make it easier than ever for you to effectively manage online event listings, without the need for any prior web-tech knowledge.

Acuweb™Events allows you to create event-related listings, including dates, time and venue information; add an event or venue logo; automatically generate an interactive google map to the event location; and categorize your events, so they can display on one or more event lists within your site.

Examples

Here are some examples of how Acuweb™Events can be displayed on your website . . . Such as here, on the home page, where a compact "mini-display" of event information is appropriate, with links to more information about that event . . .

. . . When the link is clicked, a pop-up panel provides greater detail, displays the venue logo, and shows an interactive googlemap to the event location...

Events output can also be customized to display in a list-view, searchable by category, keyword, or date, and can optionally be equipped with online registration. Ask your Acuweb customer care representative if you'd like to know more about these options.

When the details button is clicked . . .

Manage Events

New Look
(click for a larger view)

To administer your Acuweb™Events, from the Acuweb navigation bar, simply select 'events'.

Any time you select an Acuweb 'app' , the options for that app will appear in the blue sub-nav bar immediately below the main navigation. This method of navigating among your Acuweb apps is consistent across all of your site's tools. You can always click on the name of the app, in the main navigation bar, to return to the starting list-view.

The first screen displays a list-view of all existing events. The "add new event" button at the top of the list allows you to create new event records.

The list-view provides you with an overview of each event, including the event categories to which it is assigned; contact information; start and end dates; and a cluster of function-control buttons, on the right. (notice that if there is no email contact address for a given listing, the email button is automatically grayed out).

Event Information

Clicking on the 'edit' button takes you to a series of panels, from which you can manage each event . . .

New Look
(click for a larger view)

The event information panel includes start and end dates and times for each event listing, important for situations where you want the system to automatically manage the dates and times during which this event will appear on your site. You have the ability to have an all day event for a single day or to span across several days.

Descriptions

In the next panel, you can enter the full description for the event, which will appear when your site visitor clicks on an event in a list-view, to get more details about a particular event.

Levels
