At Timely, we are constantly improving our event software solutions. In this post, you will learn about our product update posted on April 5, 2022, which includes improvements on accessibility, map view, and email templates to better manage events submitted by the community.
1. Web Accessibility Improvements
Web accessibility involves an inclusive practice of ensuring websites and software applications are accessible to everyone, including people with disabilities.
This month we’ve made significant improvements in the accessibility of the public interface of our software. In particular, we improved the month view and toolbar for keyboard-only navigation.
2. Map View is Now Available in More Plans
The Map View was added to several plans, increasing the possibility of views for your calendar. Now your customer can see where the events are taking place using the Google Maps tool.
To make use of the new view, you have to provide a Google Maps API key for the map view to work correctly.
