Connect Other Events to Calendar

Created on:
Updated on:

Your church can have various events that you manage using different products. If you've created an event in Calendar but manage it with Check-Ins, Registrations, or Services, you can create a connection to navigate back and forth quickly.

Note

Unlike feeds, connections do not sync or change information in the other product. It's simply a way to navigate between two connected items as you add the schedule, rooms, and resources.

Add Connections to Events

Administrators and event creators can connect a Calendar event from the Connections tab.

  1. Select New connection.

  2. Select the product with the corresponding event.

  3. Choose the associated service type, event, signup, or group.

    You can only see and connect to products that you can access. If you cannot find what you need, contact an administrator.

    Notice

    If a signup doesn't exist, create a new one by selecting Create signup. The information from the Calendar event will be copied to the signup, and you'll be taken to Registrations to complete the remaining information.

Navigate Between Products

Once a connection is made between two events, the administrators in both products will see a link to move between events.

Notice

You'll see an error page if you don't have the appropriate access for the other product.

Select the connections icon or View to go to the event in the other product.

In other products, administrators can switch to the Calendar event by selecting it from the dropdown icon.

Services

Connect a Calendar event to a Service Type, and the connection will take you to the plan that matches the date in your Calendar event.

Registration Events

When a signup is created from Calendar, information like the name, dates and times, and event image are copied. Once an event is connected to a signup in Registrations, you can jump between the events in both products.

If you're using a custom URL for your signup, you can add this to the event's Settings tab.

Groups

Calendar events can connect to individual groups so that you can navigate between the group and your Calendar event. You must create an event in Calendar to connect it to a group. If you want group leaders to add their events to Calendar, create an event request form and send it to group leaders.
