Improving access to calendar & deadline information

by Unknown in , , , 0

One common concern that students, faculty and staff have raised is how to make it easier to find information about events and key campus deadlines that are important to them. 

Information Technology Services has been running a pilot of Trumba, a calendar management system that helps share calendar information in a more flexible, personal way. 

You may have noticed some recent changes to the Calendars & Deadlines page. This important page has been the 20th most visited web page on the CSUCI web site over the past year (Feb 2018-Feb 2019).

New features on the Calendars & Deadlines page include:

1. Subscribing to receive event or deadline reminders by SMS text message or email.
2. Subscribing to events categories and automatically adding those events to your personal calendar. 
3. Search for events/deadlines by name
4. Filter events and deadlines by category

...and much more (see the list of key Trumba features). Teaching & Learning Innovations (T&LI) is also using Trumba as part of our pilot to publish workshop and other event information. View the T&LI Events Calendar, powered by Trumba. 

If you'd like to learn more about Trumba, and find out how your organization can begin to leverage this platform to deliver event and deadline information in a more interactive and personal way, please contact Daniel Martinez in Web Services to request a Trumba consultation.
