Add Registrations Signups to Calendar

Created on:
Updated on:

You can reserve rooms and resources in Calendar for your Registrations signups using feeds! A feed automatically recreates your Registrations signups in Calendar and keeps them connected between products. In Registrations, signups are managed as usual, while over in Calendar, you're able to do things like:

Important

Only Organization Administrators can add, edit, or remove feeds in Calendar.

Warning

Adding a feed will import all active future signup events from Registrations into Calendar. There isn't a way to choose which events are included in a feed or remove individual events from Calendar without deleting the signup in Registrations first.

Add a Registrations Feed

Expand the Filter pane in the Calendar tab on the Events page, and then select Add feed.

Select Registrations as the Feed source.

Choose one person as the default event owner of this feed's events in Calendar. This should be someone with Administrator permissions in Registrations. Add any tags you want to apply to these events, including tags that are required for all events.

Click the green Add feed button to create the feed and import your events. Once the feed is enabled, edits can be made to individual events in the event settings.

Note

Ongoing signups are not included in Calendar feeds, since there are no dates associated with them.

Manage Registrations Feed Events

When you add a Registrations feed, an integrated event will be created in Calendar for each of your active future signups in Registrations. Most of the settings for Calendar events created through a Registrations feed have to be managed within the signup in Registrations. These events are given the same visibility settings in Church Center as the signups they're created from.

Signups with multiple times or dates will be imported as separate events in Calendar with an instance for each time and date. You can navigate between instances like you can with recurring events that are created in Calendar, however, any edits made to a Registrations feed event cannot be applied to future instances. Each instance must be edited separately.

What Information Cannot Be Updated in Calendar for Feed Events?

Since feed events are originally created in other products, Calendar Administrators are limited to the changes they can make to the feed event. These items cannot be updated in Calendar and must be changed in the original product's event:

  • Event Name

  • Main Date/Time

  • Frequency for recurring events (only for Groups events)

  • Location and how it's displayed for non-group members

  • Event Image

  • Event Description and Summary

  • Visibility on Church Center (only for Registrations events)

Feed events cannot be deleted from within Calendar; they must be deleted in the product they were created in to be removed from Calendar.

If the original event is archived, it will not change or remove the feed event in Calendar. You can choose to remove an archived feed event from your shared calendars, by unsharing it from the event's Schedule.

Add Individual Signups

To add only specific signups to Calendar, do not use the feed. Instead, create an event directly in Calendar and connect your signup to it by adding the Registrations URL in the event's Settings tab.
