Introduction to WebEvent

WebEvent is an interactive calendar that allows you to share event information via the Web. You can manage personal, departmental, and company-wide schedules from any computer (anywhere on the planet) that runs a Web browser. Maintaining and supporting WebEvent is a snap because no other software needs to be installed on individual computers.

WebEvent has many powerful features including:

Multiple Calendar Views and Formats

Tailoring each calendar to your changing needs couldn't be easier. Choose to view each calendar yearly, monthly, biweekly, weekly, daily, or by event, even change from traditional calendar grid to a list format. Change your mind? Click a single icon to change the view or format.

Event Types

Schedule meetings, manage tasks, reserve conference rooms, receive reminders about birthdays--you name it! WebEvent can handle it with timed and untimed events, as well as "To-dos."

Flexible Event Types

Schedule meetings, manage tasks, reserve conference rooms, receive reminders about birthdays--you name it! WebEvent can handle it with timed and untimed events, as well as "To-dos."

Event Reminders

No more excuses. Let WebEvent remind you (and your colleagues) of important upcoming events like birthdays, anniversaries, meetings, and project deadlines.

Searchable Calendars

Search one or more calendars for events matching specific keywords.

Meta-Calendars

Combine two or more calendars into one view to create the ultimate scheduling tool--a meta-calendar. For example, combine the schedules of different athletic teams or simultaneously view the production schedules of different groups within a department. Use the "Select Calendars" link on any calendar page to create a meta-calendar on the fly. To automatically open two or more calendars, use the Embedded calendars option on the calendar configuration page, or create links to a meta-calendar view from HTML pages.

User Authentication

User authentication is built into WebEvent. Control access (both read and write) from the administrative section. Or grant calendar and site administrative access so that a single person does not have to manage all the calendars

Conflict Resolution

Make scheduling rooms, equipment, and other resources hassle-free; WebEvent can double-check that your selected date and time does not interfere with any previously scheduled events.

Submitted Events

Allow users with read access (members of the public, employees, students) to submit events to the calendar, pending approval by a user with the appropriate privileges.

Print Views

Click on the "Print" icon from any calendar view to instantly create a stripped-down, ready-to-print version of the current view.

Style and Color Options

Be the architect, engineer, and interior designer of your calendar--all without learning HTML. Insert header or footer text. Change background images and colors. Modify text type attributes.

Source Code

You're in charge with WebEvent. Written in Perl (with the source code clearly defined), it's the ultimate flexible scheduling tool. If we have not anticipated all of your needs, you'll be able to modify the program to do exactly as you desire.


 

 

Viewing Calendars and Events

 

Introduction to Viewing Calendars and Events

WebEvent allows you to view the schedule of events in whatever way best suits your needs. Specify the view and format, whether or not to show event descriptions, and many other preferences.

Introduction to WebEvent Navigation Tools

The standard calendar has both an access bar and an icon bar at the top of the page. The access bar provides information related to the user's current access privileges. The icon bar provides quick access to the most frequently used calendar functions.

Access bar: The gray access bar defines your current user status and provides links to other areas of WebEvent appropriate to your level of access.

Select Calendar(s): Quickly change calendars by selecting the calendar from the pull-down menu and clicking the "View Calendar" button. If you want to view more than one calendar at a time, highlight the calendars you want to view and click the "View Calendars" button. (Macintosh users should hold down the "Apple" key to select and deselect calendars; PC users should use the "Control" key.) To view all the calendars to which you have access, click the "View All Calendars" button.

Jump to Today: One-click access to today's date. (This is also the recommended way to refresh your screen and see the most recent changes other users have made to the calendar. Do not use the browser's "Reload" button.)

Select Date: Manually select the desired date from pull-down menus.

Submit an Event: Submit an event for inclusion in the calendar (if the calendar is configured to allow event submissions). The submitted event will not appear in the calendar until someone with appropriate access approves it.

Icon bar: The icon bar allows you to quickly access various options and functions available within WebEvent. Here's a quick description of the buttons in the icon bar:

Calendar Views and Formats

You can view events in any one of the following ways:

Current Session Options

You can change various viewing options for your current session:

The Rest of the Icon Bar

Show/Hide description

Choose between showing the descriptions on the current page or clicking on an event to read the description.

Searching the calendar

Enter a keyword to search one or more calendars. Specify start and end dates to narrow your search.

Online help

Peruse the user's guide for help using and configuring WebEvent.

Login/Logout

Depending on your account configuration, entering your WebEvent username and password may allow you to access additional calendars and configuration screens. If you are already logged in, clicking on the Logout button will log you out and return you to the startup page.


 

Adding and Modifying Events

 

Introduction to Adding and Modifying Events

You will need to log in to modify most calendars. Click the "Login" button and enter your WebEvent username and password. Then, check the gray access bar to determine whether the calendar is currently in Modify or View mode.

If the access bar reads: "Modify Mode", click on that link to switch to Modify mode so that you can add, change, and delete events. If "View Mode" appears in the access bar, you are already in Modify mode.

Adding New Events

First, always verify that the calendar is currently in Modify mode, by checking to see that "View Mode" appears in the gray access bar.

There are two ways to add an event:

Either action will take you to the add new event screen which contains the following fields:

Basic Options

Event Title: Type in the title of the event (e.g. "X-Files Convention".)

Date: The date you selected will appear, but you may choose another from the pull-down menu.

Start Time: Choose a start time, if appropriate.

End Time: Choose an end time, if appropriate.

Special: Set special event attributes.

Description: Enter a description of the event. If available, designate the type of description (Text or HTML). If you choose to use HTML, be careful to enter valid HTML.

Advanced Options

Calendar: Select the calendar or calendars into which this event should be added. (Macintosh users should hold down the "Apple" key to select and deselect calendars; PC users should use the "Control" key.)

Event Privacy: Designate if the event information should be readable by users who only have "read" access. "Private" events appear as an untitled placeholders in the calendar.

Mark As Busy All-Day: Designate a special event or to-do as an 'all day' event. In calendars with 'prevent double-booking' enabled, this will prevent other events from being added to that day.

Contact Person: Enter the name of the person associated with and/or responsible for the event.

Contact Email: Enter the email address for the person associated with and/or responsible for the event.

Repeat: To add a recurring event, first designate how it should repeat (i.e., every other day). Then specify either the total number of times the event should repeat or an end date until which it should repeat.

Remind: If you want to receive an email reminder (or remind others via email), choose when you want to be reminded and enter the appropriate e-mail address (or addresses, separated by commas.)

Priority: Set the priority (low, medium, or high) for the event.

Auto-forward: Designate if "To-dos" should be auto-forwarded so that they will reappear each day until marked "completed."

To-do Done: Mark this checkbox after you have completed the "To-do".

Title Style: Choose from normal, bold, and italic.

Title Size: Choose to enlarge or shrink the default title text size.

Title Color: Choose from several Web-safe colors.

Title Image URL: Add an image associated with this event by typing in the URL of the image. For example:

http://www.WebEvent.com/webevent.gif

Title URL: Enter the URL associated with this event. (When someone clicks on the event title, it will send them to this URL instead of the usual event description screen.) For example:

http://www.WebEvent.com/

Approval Status: Mark the "Approved" circle if this event should appear on the calendar. Events marked "Unapproved" will not be visible to guest users and will appear with a conspicuous "UNAPPROVED" marking to users with greater access.

Event Change Notification: Enter in the email addresses (separated by commas or carriage returns) of users to be notified when the event is first added and whenever the event is changed.

Modifying and Deleting Events

First, always verify that the calendar is currently in Modify mode, by checking to see that "View Mode" appears in the gray access bar.

To modify or delete an existing event, click on the event title. The modify event screen will display the event's current information. Modify the appropriate fields (described in Adding New Events), choose "Change This Event" or "Delete This Event" from the pull-down menu, and click the "Submit" button..

Setting Calendar Options

To set the default behavior of a specific calendar, click "Cal Config" in the gray access bar.

The calendar configuration screen includes the following fields:

Show Event Author: Turn the event author credit on or off.

Force Show Event Author: Designate whether events with neither contact name or contact email should display author credit. (In the case of missing contact information, the user who last modified the event will receive author credit.)

Log in as an administrator and click "Jump to site options" on the startup page or click "Site Config" in the gray access bar. (Site administrators have complete access to all events, accounts, and calendars.)

The site configuration screen includes the following fields:

License Key: Select "Modify Key" to change the license key string or to review your current status.

User Access: Select the account name or "Add New User" then click "Modify Access" to change the account permissions. See Account Administration for more information.

It is NOT necessary to check this box if you simply want to add to the existing HTML headers. (WARNING: Selecting this option will disable javascript and cause WebEvent to ignore almost all aesthetic settings from the site and calendar configuration screens. If you enter inappropriate or flawed HTML in the 'WebEvent HTML Headers' field, your browser will not display your calendars correctly, if at all.).

 

The following site configuration options affect all calendars:

Site Font: The font used for all text throughout WebEvent.

Form Background Color: Enter the appropriate RGB color code for the default color of the background color on all forms (such as the site configuration form.)

Select "Add New User" from either the calendar configuration or site configuration screen, and click the "Modify Access" button.

The account administration screen contains the following fields:

Modify Existing Account: Select an account from the pull-down menu and click the "Edit Access" button to modify that account. See Modifying or Deleting an Account for more information.

Account Name: Enter a lowercase alpha-numeric name (no spaces, punctuation, or other special characters) for the new account.

Account Password: Enter a password for the new account.

Name (first and last): Enter the user's name.

E-mail Address: Enter the user's e-mail address of the new account.

Calendar Access Levels: Designate the level of access this user should have to each calendar.

Site Administrator: Designate whether this account should have site administrator privileges. Caveat: choose wisely!

Click the "Add Account" button to create the new user or click the "Cancel" button to cancel any changes you have made to this screen.

Modifying or Deleting an Account

You can modify or delete existing accounts by selecting the account from the "User Access" pull-down menu on either the calendar configuration or site configuration screen and clicking the "Modify Access" button.

The account administration screen contains the following fields:

Add New Account: Click the "Add Account" button to add a new account. See Adding a New Account for more information.

Acknowledgments

WebEvent began as a project at Boston University in 1994. Responding to public demand, its creator, James Cameron, and student programmer, Ted Buswell, released a freeware version later that year. The commercial version of WebEvent debuted in 1997. Many thanks to those at Boston University and around the world whose contributions and comments have influenced WebEvent's current form.
