The Calendar Tool is part of the Basic Toolkit. You must have the CDM+ Roommate program to use it.
Calendar Tools, like Event Listing Tools, publish data directly from your Roommate Facilities Manager. Use CDM+ Roommate to edit events; changes made in Roommate will automatically show up on your published tool. The Calendar Tool shows events one month at a time, with options to also show a weekly or daily view. Publish events and their details for specific departments or rooms or for all departments or rooms.
Calendar Tool Setup
After creating a new Calendar Tool on the WMT website, you will automatically be directed to the tool's Options page. To re-enter this page at any time, go to your WMT home page and click Options to the right of the tool.
In this window you can:
- Change the name of the tool
- Apply filters for Rooms or Departments
- Choose whether or not to show: Room Information, Contact Information, Set-up and Take-down Times
- Choose whether or not to display a Day Tab and/or a Week Tab on your Calendar.
Renaming a Calendar Tool
To change the name of an Calendar Tool, delete the old name and type the new one in the box next to Tool Name at the top of the Options page.
Setting filters on a Calendar Tool
These filters will limit or expand the amount of information your tool will publish.
Rooms and Departments
Select the rooms and departments for which you would like to publish events. The Do not filter any rooms and Do not filter departments checkboxes control whether all rooms and departments' events display on the calendar. To limit either the rooms or departments included on the calendar, the corresponding checkbox must be unchecked.
Choose which Rooms or Departments to show by moving those Rooms or Departments from the left-hand column to the right-hand column. Clicking on the name of a room or department will move it from one column to the other. If you want to select most, but not all, rooms/departments, save time by using the Select All button. Then, click on the names of just the rooms/departments you do not want to show to move them back into the left-hand column.
If you add a new room or department in CDM+ Roommate, remember to select it on the Options page for any calandar tools that should display events in that room or department.
Setting options for how much information to show for each event
Choose how much information you want to show for each event on your calendar by clicking on or off the boxes beside Show Room Information?, Show Contact Information? and Show set-up and take-down times? A preview changes to show the effects of your choices.
