Use the Calendar



The following will detail out the process for using the Calendar:

Subscriber Usage (Good, Better and Best Levels)

Subscribers will use the Calendar by responding to Calendar Events left by the owner of the group whom will be responsible for writing a Calendar entry that will be relevant to the individual that is using the group. The owner will have the responsibility to set expectations around what kind of Calendar Entries are created and what Calendar Dates are useful to the group subscribers and what is not useful. Subscribers will use Calendars as follows:

1) From your account page, select the group in which you are a subscriber.

2) From the group page, select the Calendar link. (On the left side of the page.)

3) From the Calendar Link, select the Month that is of interest to you.

4) Select a Calendar Date Entry of interest, read the information about the event, determine if you want to respond.

5) If you want to respond, select the comments link and type into the comments block then select "Add Comment".

6) Users will have the option to Like it or say that it is Important. 

NOTE: Doing Likes and Important indicators will help people manage their time since they will have notification thresholds setup. This allows them to see items that have a level of likes and importants. At this time we are NOT providing comments to comments in the blog.

You're Done!




Subscriber Calendar Entry Usage (Best Level ONLY)

Subscribers that have the Best Level for their subscription will also have the ability to submit a Calendar Entry to the owner. The owner will have the ability to review this Calendar Event and determine if additional edits are required or if they want to not approve the Calendar Entry. The suscriber should be expected to be able to do the following:

1) From your account page, select the group that you are a Subscriber with a Best Level.

2) From the group page, select the link "Calendar". (On the left side of the page.)

3) From the Calendar Page, Select the button "Add Event to Calendar".

4) From the Add/Edit Calendar Event Page, enter the event's title, event date (please use MM/DD/YYY format with M-Month 2 digits [02 or 12], D-Day [ 05 or 23], Y-Year [2013 or 2014]), location and body of the content.

5) Add Pictures by pasting a link from an online photo.

6) Manage the location of your photo in the text with the placement of the tags {PICTURE}.

7) Select the button "Apply Changes" at the bottom of the page, and your calendar event has been created and submitted to the owner of the group.

8) The owner of the Group will then see a banner on their home page that says  "You have X unpublished Calendar post. Click Here to review." The owners of the group will then select the "Click Here" hot link and review your post. 

9) If they like the calendar event as is, they can just select "Publish" to push the content to the Group for all group members to view. Or they may decide to delete the calendar event by selecting delete. Or they may decide to edit the calendar event to improve it's content.

NOTE: Please note that once you send the Calendar Event, the content no longer is considered your Intellectual Property. If you include intellectual property in the form of pictures and video, it is upto you the owner to identify that product with a copyright ON THE CONTENT as we cannot guarantee that the Owner of the Group will remember to state proper copyrights to your submitted Calendar Entry text. If this is an issue, please refrain from sending a Calendar Entry to an Owner.

10) Finally, as long as the Calendar Event is still in review, you as the owner of the blog will be able to edit it until which time it is posted. 
  
11) Once the owner of the Calendar determines that they like your event, they can then publish your event. Congratulations! You have made an important contribution to the group.

You're Done!

NOTE: Your list of Calendar Events can also contain suggested postings by other subscribers that are at a level Best, please be considerate in editing and recognizing those that contribute. Determine if the user would like to be recognized or not for the suggested posting. [At this time that will have to be done through a direct message to them.] Also, work with your subscriber if you choose to substantially change the content of the posting they have submitted. One of the most important goals for your group is to ensure that your group members are participating at a level that gives them reason to stay with you.
