Now you can indicate that an Event is Virtual right from the Details Page!
When entering an event, now Is this Event Offsite? has been changed to Is this Event Offsite/Virtual? with Neither, Offsite and Virtual as options (Neither is selected by default)
When selecting Virtual, you can enter a link to an online meeting
- NOTE: Keep in mind that you must enter the link with the correct format (must start with "http://" or "https://") or the following warning will appear:
Once you Submit your event, it will appear on the Dashboard with a new tag that says VIRTUAL EVENT
After your event is fully approved, it will also appear on the Calendar as VIRTUAL EVENT
To connect to your Virtual Event right from eSPACE simply click on the Event Name, then click on the Summary Tab and the link will appear as a clickable hyperlink
- It could be a good idea to change the name to include the word "Virtual" in the name (e.g. Men's Bible Study would change to Men's Bible Study-VIRTUAL).
- It might be helpful to create an Event Category called Virtual to help you with reporting and filtering.
Additionally, you can select Public and enter your online meeting link into the Public Link field to have it appear on your Public Calendar as a clickable hyperlink.
