Calendar

To demonstate the capabilities of the Calendar module for Graphic Impact websites, we have included all holidays and reminders available from the master list. For a good demonstration of calendar features, see the Wayne Township or Evangel Baptist Church sites.
  • Clients can select from a master list of Holidays and Reminders, all of which are shown here. These can easily be rolled forward a year at a time in the site's Content Management System (CMS).
  • The Daily Note is used by Evangel Baptist Church for a Daily Bible Reading. The reference to the Bible passage is shown in the calendar as a link to the passage on BibleGateway.com. The Daily Note could also be used for other material, with a one-line notation in the calendar that could be linked to expanded content. Examples could include such things as a word-for-the-day, quote, statistics, etc.
  • Calendar items can be linked to news stories, events, the media gallery, documents, and web pages (the priority order for forming the link in grid view). In list view, a line is added to the description for "additional links," with links for all available assets.
  • A special kind of calendar item called "Document Archive," can be used for regularly recurring events, such as a board or committee meeting. The calendar item is associated with an "archive type." The primary link on the title is automatically created when one of up to three files on a timeline is detected (i.e., notice, agenda, and minutes). In list view, up to seven links will be automatically created: up to three for the archive type documents, plus four additional assets that would regularly or frequently be associated with the event (examples include a pdf of PowerPoint notes, an audio podcast or a video.)

Hints about printing the Calendar.

The best printing of the Calendar Grid view is done with the printer set to Landscape orientation. Depending on the printer and its setup, printing in Portrait orientation will either spread across two pages or reduce the size of the calendar to fit the page width, resulting in very small font size.

When printing from Calendar List view, it will print normally in Portrait orientation.
