University Events Calendar Rolled Out!
The new Events Calendar provides an improved user experience for event attendees, and it has made promoting university events much more efficient. This solution will enable events to be created in one place but promoted through multiple venues, such as, the FlashLine Portal, www.kent.edu/calendar, and department web pages.
For those that like to add the incentive of FLASHperks to your events, users can now do that within the same request form. Also within the same request, events can be requested to be featured on the www.kent.edu calendars page.
Multiple communications have been sent to multiple channels to raise awareness about the events calendar. Training instructions on submitting an event are available on the Event Form itself. For those departments that would like hands-on training, UCM also offers a two hour, in-person training.
Students have the ability to 'favorite' events that they are interested in attending directly within the FlashLine Portal by clicking a ‘save’ button which has been added on each event. Students can save an event then filter by only the events they have saved.
