Events Calendar Launch Announcment

June 26, 2015

You are receiving this message because you are a user of the U of M Events Calendar. We will be launching a new Events Calendar system on the Twin Cities campus next Wednesday, July 1st. You can access the new system here: events-new.umn.edu.

The current calendar will remain available for a while after launching the new system to allow you some time to move events over.

Everyone is able to start using the new Events Calendar immediately. I have attached documentation for getting yourself set up in the system. Before setting up an Event Owner Profile, check with others in your department/college to find out if an Event Owner Profile already exists for your area.

For those of you who are already using the new calendar system, I want to announce a couple new features:

  • You are now able to share your Event Owner Profile with multiple people and manage multiple Event Owner Profiles. Instructions for how to do this are in the attached documentation.
  • We have removed the "No Tickets or Registration" indication. This way if you have registration or tickets in a different approved system, such as tickets.umn.edu, you can provide a URL for your registration in that system.
  • We are adding links to the description pages on Event Owner Profiles and Events. This is not available yet but will be ready late-July to early-August.

If you have any questions, concerns or feedback about the new tool, please let us know by emailing events@umn.edu.
