    Hi Deborah,

    I'm so sorry that the video wasn't helpful.  The information was just sample information and not necessarily meant to be replicated.  The main things to know in adding events is to click "add event" in the top right corner, then fill out any of the details for the event (description, date, time, etc.) and then click "save event".  

    If you have any troubles creating a new event please don't hesitate to contact our support team and they'd be happy to walk you through it!

    Cheers,

    Sheley

    Tried creating an event to be added to a google calendar. After hitting the submit button, no event was created in either breeze nor the google calendar. No email either to the google calendar owner for permission. So how do we add from breeze to google?

    Also, if we do this through breeze to add to google, can we take attendance or does that only work for breeze calendar items only?

    Hey there - I'm sorry about that trouble!  Could you try creating another event?  It's possible that the page had a brief bug which prevented the event from submitting.  Also be sure to look at which calendar the event is being added to and make sure that that calendar is set to view.  

    Have you already followed the directions found here: Integrate with Google Calendar  to add your calendar from Breeze to Google?

    After you've done that, your Breeze events will show up in Google.  You will be able to take attendance from events created in Breeze.  If an event was created in Google Calendar and then synced to Breeze, it's strictly a read-only event so you will not be able to take attendance.  However, events that originate in Breeze will post to Google Calendar after you've finished the integration and you will be able to take attendance.

    I was able to create the event but I do not understand how to add people through invitation to the event.

    Hey Jake!

     I see how inviting people to an event that has been created can be a great way to let them know what is going on. :)


    Currently in Breeze, when you create an event you have the option to be able to request for Volunteers, but as for specifically inviting people to an event that you have created this is not an option within Breeze at this time. 

    You do have the option once that an event has been created to be able to share a link from the event within Breeze out to your website. You can also directly share your Events calendar on your Church website, this will allow anyone that access your Website to be able to view the list of events that you have set up from within Breeze.

    If I create an event and use the tags to add certain groups, will the people with that tag be notified?  Is there a way to notify them by text and/or email?

    Thank you.

    Hey finance!

    Great question! While they won't be automatically notified, you can notify them via email or text. Here a great article that will be most helpful: Emailing Groups of People in Tags :)

    Hi.. How do you do this?

    "You do have the option once that an event has been created to be able to share a link from the event within Breeze out to your website.

    I'm looking for shareable links for events, can't seem to find where that might be when I go to calendar or event details page. Thanks!

    Thanks. I have been successful at embedding and subscring to an entire calendar. I would like to know if we can share a link to a single event. Is this feature only available for registration forms or can we share a link for info on a single event, without having to share the entire calendar? Thanks.

    Hi Merari!

    Right now, that is not a current feature. This feature is only available for registration forms at this time. 

    I know that is not exactly what you are hoping for but I do hope this information is helpful.

    Is there a way to create an event that repeats on specific dates only (i.e.. not weekly or monthly etc - sometimes the events happen once a month, then the next month it's twice or three times) without inputting each one individually? This is an important feature for me for two reasons:

    1. I only have to input the event details once

    2. When I go to recruit volunteers for the event, they can see the different dates the event repeats on in a single email request. If I input them as individual events I have to send out separate 'request volunteer' emails for each date.

    I also would like to be able to link to specific events. Very important feature for adding to our weekly emails. People don't want to have to sift through the entire calendar, or even a listing of specific events. I hope you add this feature soon. Thank you.

    Hi @carolynn and @usgadmin! 

    This would only be possible by merging the events which could be done through Support. However, this event would have to belong together in a series (same settings, name, time, etc.), 

    Thank you both for your feedback here about how we can improve breeze--we’re always on the hunt for the next great idea to serve churches better! Currently we are not accepting feature requests via the Community forum. For more information about submitting a feature request, please check out www.breezechms.com/features.

    Can I create an event and simply invite a tag to the event, and request that they rsvp for attending (not volunteering)? Or do I have to create a registration form?

    Hello @cfletcher!

    I would recommend creating a registration form. Sending out a request in events, is directly related to volunteers. So while you could still have them RSVP, it would come through with volunteer wording.

    Here is a great resource that will be most helpful:
