Events - How to Setup Facebook Feature

Evanced Solutions has added a new feature as of Events version 7.14, where the library is giving the patron access to like an Event from the Library Event Calendar to post on the patrons Facebook page. This feature gives the library the upper hand in advertising to all those Facebook users connected to that one patron. Free advertising!

Setup


Follow the following steps in proceeding with setup of your Facebook feature.

1. Open the Staff Side of the Events Program

2. From the Tool Bar Select "About"

3. Ensure the Version Number is equal to or greater than 7.14

4. Contact Evanced Customer Support and submit a request to enable the Facebook feature on your Events site as well as upgrade the Events site if needed.

How It works


Select an Event from the Calendar


Select the "Facebook Like" icon


IF the patron is signed into Facebook on their computer the status will auto post to the patrons Facebook Page

If the patron is not Logged into their Facebook site then the system will prompt to Login before posting.

Thank you for your feedback. It is greatly appreciated. We are actually planning more facebook integration features in the future.

It would be better to have a share button to share an event. That way if someone found an event they were attending, they could share it and say, "I am going to this, why not join me?"
