1. Events Calendar Design Improvements

1.1 Ten New Themes for Your Events Calendar!

We wanted to make it easier for our clients to customize the look and feel of their events listing. Our team came up with 10 new different themes out of the box for you to choose from. The 10 new themes are:

  • Amsterdam
  • Antique
  • Corporate
  • Echeveria
  • Twilight
  • Minimal
  • Peacock
  • Timely
  • Classic
  • Legacy

Login to your dashboard and go to Settings > Design and try them on to see which one would look better for your calendar. After picking a theme, you can customize them even more to match your brand, using the tools already available in our solution.

If you do not want to use any of the themes, you can always use the "Custom" theme, and do all your customizations from the scratch.

1.2 Two Event Page Layout Options!

Now, when you select your calendar theme you can choose among 2 layouts for your event page details. The theme will set the look, colors and fonts, and the layout will determine the position of the event information in the event details page. The two event post layout options are:

  • Default
  • Naos

3. Event Booking: More Ticket Options with Time Slots

Now, with Timely Event Booking feature, you can create tickets and registrations with time slots for both free and paid events. You can select these new types of event registration when creating an event, in the section "Cost and Tickets".

Now you see three new options:

  • Time Slot Registration/RSVP
  • Time Slot Tickets
  • Entry Fee

In order to accommodate these new types of tickets, we improved the display as follows:

You can understand the new options better by compare them with the old ones:

  1. No tickets is the old "No display" and "No Tickets";
  2. Event Registration/RSVP is the regular RSVP (Old Timely Tickets & RSVP);
  3. Time Slot Registration/RSVP is a new time slot option without a ticket cost (New Timely Booking);
  4. Entry fee is a new option where you can set up a price and charge the attendee on site, for example (New);
  5. Event Ticket is the regular Ticket (Old Timely Tickets & RSVP);
  6. Time Slot Ticket is a new time slot option with price (New Timely Booking);
  7. The External Ticket option doesn't change.
