On Jan. 6, 2014, Web Services will launch a new version of the university’s calendar of events. This new version is a complete rewrite of the code that powers the calendar. The update brings the system up to current standards and sets it up for continued, regular updates as we continue into 2014. It also includes several new features:
- An all-new layout.
- Subscribe via RSS to any events category, sub-category or group of categories.
- Save any event to your Outlook, Google or iCal calendar. (Saving to iCal will also work on mobile devices.)
- Quickly find the university’s academic calendar via a link at the top of the page.
- Share events to any social media website.
For anyone who manages a calendar through the system’s administration system, this system has also been rewritten and has a new layout. Web Services will be contacting you via email in January to explain new features and will offer training sessions in using the new administration system.
