  • Calendars
  • Adding Events in OrangeCal is a snap, once you understand how to format the event. The basic structure of an event, needs to be:

    "Event" on Day at Time

    Here are some examples:

    1. To add a single event to a calendar, type:

      "Go to School" on Tuesday at 8am

      or

      "Go to School" on 5/1 at 8am

    2. To add multiple events to a calendar, just type them in order:

      "Go to School" on Tuesday at 8am
      "Go to School" on Wednesday at 8am

      or

      "Go to School" on 5/1 at 8am
      "Go to School" on 5/2 at 8am

    3. If you would like to set up a recurring event, you can do that too:

      "Go to School" every weekday at 8am from 5/1 to 6/20

      Don't worry if you make a mistake when you add a recurring event, just click the first instance of the event and click Edit. You can then Delete that Event and Every Instance of that Event to get rid of it.

    You've got a calendar, so what do you do with it? Why not share it with your family or your co-workers? Here's how:

    If you want to let your family and friends edit your calendar, just select Allow user(s) to manage this calendar.

    Your friend will receive an email. They just need to follow the link in that email and sign up for OrangeCal and they will be added to the calendar - it's that easy!

  • Organizations
  • Organizations are an easy way for you to manage all the people on your calendars and to keep track of their attendance across different events. You can also specify different roles for each member of the organization:
    • Members can create, edit, and remove events on the organization's calendars.
    • Managers can also create calendars for the organization and add & remove members.
    • Owners have complete control of the organization, including the ability to remove calendars, update info about the organization, and edit billing information.

    To add people to your Organization, go to the Organization page and select Add Member.

    Type in the email address for the person that you are adding to your Organization. You can also specify the role of the user in the Organization as either a member, a manager, or an owner.

    Once you click Add Members, an invitation will be sent to the email that you specified. The recipient just needs to click the link in the email and they will get added to the Organization.

    If you need to add another calendar for all the members in your organization to use, just go to the Organization page and select Add Calendar.

    This will create a new calendar and automatically add everybody to the calendar with the same roles that they have in the Organization.

    With an Organization, you can keep track that a user attended events on your calendars. The way that you do this is through the Sign In Sheet for the calendar event.

    On the Sign Up Sheet, you can see who has RSVP’ed to go to the event. From there, you can then specify of those people who RSVP’ed YES, how many of them actually attended the event.

    You can also see a Attendance report for each calendar in your Organization. This report tells you which members of your Organization RSVP’ed yes to the events on the calendar and then how many people actually attended the events that they RSVP’ed.

    If you are a member of an Organization, you can use different colors with your events. This allows you to group certain types of events so that they are visually distinct from other events.

    To do this, edit an event that you want to assign a color and select which color you want to use.

    Another feature of Organizations is that you can put your your calendar on your own webpage.

    To do this:

    1. Go to www.orangecal.com and login.
    2. In the left-hand nav, click on the calendar that you want to add to your website.
    3. Once you are in the Calendar page, click the Options button in the upper right corner.
    4. Select Website Widget.
    5. In this window, specify the size you want to use and the number of events you want to display and click "Get Widget Code"
    6. Copy the generated code and paste into your website.
    7. If you want a monthly view of your calendar, change “widget.js” to “monthy_widget.js” and remove the “num_events=” part of the string:

      For example:

      <script src="http://www.orangecal.com/c/i41oHOUAWHHDh_RcpIvB5g/widget.js?num_events=5&width=350&height="></script>

      Becomes:

      <script src="http://www.orangecal.com/c/i41oHOUAWHHDh_RcpIvB5g/monthly_widget.js?width=650"></script>
