Our Events Module has recently undergone a massive makeover and now offers improved usability and more features than ever before. This new interface is still in beta, so it will need to be manually activated in order to see the changes and access the new features.
The new interface, which is optimized for mobile use, features a list view that improves readability and makes it easier to view and minimize the navigation menu. This also allows you to work on a single page instead of on three different pages, preventing you from navigating back and forth in your browser.
One of our biggest requests from our customers that was incorporated into the new Events Module is the ability to track non-personnel attendees at department events. Whether it’s a community CPR training, a public education class, or a community information night, you can now keep detailed records of who attended your events. This information is especially useful for departments who are seeking accreditation from organizations like CPSE or looking to secure grant funding.
Tracking for non-personnel:
Within each event there are now seven new fields that allow you to record additional details to better track the impact your department has on the community.
Additionally, there are new granular roles and permissions that allow you to set permissions for your personnel to “no access,” “read only,” or “create and edit.” This allows administrators control over who can view and edit specific events.
If you would like to try out this new beta version, simply navigate to the normal Events Module page and activate it by moving the slider in the upper right corner to “ON.” We would love to hear what you think, and we encourage feedback by using the “Send Feedback” button.
If you have any other questions about the updated Events Module, please fill out our information request form and we will get back to you shortly.
