​CMS Tip: Post Your Homecoming Events on Your Website

Posted on 10/4/2016 2:28:42 PM

This is part of a series of tips for web maintainers. The Web Team posts hints and tips about the CMS, MyIUP, IUP Mobile, and the interactive map each week.

Your department or office can easily add homecoming events to our online calendar and to the IUP Mobile smartphone app. Just post them to your website calendar, then check the “Homecoming” box.

Homecoming is right around the corner, and there will be events all over campus. We'll be listing those events on the homecoming website and on IUP Mobile.

If your department or office is having any special events for homecoming (alumni gathering, open house, etc.) you can add those events to the online homecoming calendar through your website.

Here's how: When editing any event, go to the “Taxonomy” tab. Then, under “University Calendars,” click on “Homecoming.” Save your event, and you're done. (The animation below demonstrates the process.)

Because of limitations in the Ektron system, we don't review your event listings in workflow. However, we will be keeping an eye on the homecoming calendar. We might make some editing changes to make the final calendar consistent, so don't be surprised if you see a few changes.

As always, contact the Web Team if you have any questions.
