An update on the new IET event calendar

We have now agreed a one week window for intensive testing of the web form for volunteers to enter data into the IET event calendar and, subject to testing, the project team are hoping to launch the new event calendar to coincide with the new session in early October.

Pen circling a date on a calendar You might remember that we recently asked for volunteers to help us test a new web form for entering events into the IET event calendar.  The new web data form is essentially a simplified front end which provides an easier way of inputting the information into Rhythmyx.  

We have now agreed with the project team a one week window for intensive testing of this web form, and over fifty volunteers have come forward to help with user testing in a mixture of physical and WebEx sessions as well as independently.  The feedback we receive during this period of user testing will be important to ensure that we have arrived at the right solution for our community volunteers.

The project team are hoping to launch the new event calendar to coincide with the new session in early October, but we will have more information on this and the transition process during the week commencing 10 September, when the results of the user testing are in.
