A new and improved calendar system was launched earlier this week on both StamfordPlus.com and NorwalkPlus.com to better serve the Fairfield County communities with information about hundreds of events in the area.
The new system offers a refreshingly simple solution both for event goers as well as event organizers. The combination of many new powerful tools and intuitive, easy to use interface, elevates the usefulness of the Canaiden Online Media Network to a new level.
“We are very excited about our new system. Our online network is already known to have one of the largest databases with local event information in southwestern Connecticut. With this new solution we can build on our existing infrastructure to deliver an even better service to our communities,” said Naiden Stoyanov, president of Canaiden LLC, the company that owns the Canaiden Online Media Network.
For event organizers, one of the biggest changes is the way events are entered into the system—new submissions are made via a single-screen form which speeds up the process significantly while registration is no longer necessary (although the name and e-mail of the submitter are required for verification purposes).
Among some of the most notable new features of the new calendar system are:
- a single-screen event submission
- improved event detail page with interactive maps, weather link and other useful event and venue information
- “most popular” events section
- the ability to sign up for a weekly newsletter that will deliver event information right to the user’s e-mail box
- advance search capabilities for an unparalleled event surfing experience
Additionally, a suite of sharing tools enables visitors to add individual events, as well as event feeds to Google, Facebook, Yahoo and many other popular social networks online.
The old calendar will still be maintained and available until July 10, 2008 to allow online users time to adjust to the new system.
