I know it’s been a little quiet around here. We’ve been heads down working away on great projects. We promise to share more soon and right now we’re super excited having just pushed a great new update to the Toronto Events Calendar. This is the beginning of a new series of incremental updates that we’ll be pushing over the coming weeks. Basically, our version 1.5 of the calendar, with more refinements coming soon.
The two main features that I love are:
Now when you click on an event page, the person who added the event is front and centre. I love this acknowledgement (and not because I’ve added so many events, but because we all get to see who’s contributing to the community and who’s sharing out great events).
I hope this will encourage more people to share the events they love, especially if we all consider thanking those individuals for pointing out a great event we otherwise may have missed.
And, of course, as mentioned in the title, this is our introduction of the My Events calendar view. On the surface it may look like a simple subscribe option, but this isn’t for the event organizer as much as it’s for you.
Before today, subscribing to the Toronto Events Calendar meant you had to see every event in a selected category in your iCal or Google Calendar. Now, you can choose to subscribe to just those events you’re interested in, which we hope will help keep your other calendars uncluttered and relevant.
As always, if you have any questions or comments, we encourage you to hit the Feedback button to the left or write us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Talk to you soon!
