Confirmed timetable for transition to the new event calendar

We are still on track to launch the new event calendar and web form to coincide with the new session.  The target date to switch over is Thursday 27 September and we will be in touch with webmasters directly with more detailed information on the transition process.

Last week we worked with a group of community volunteers to test the new web form for entering events into the IET website event calendar.  I am very pleased to say that user testing went well, with only three main issues which the team will be addressing prior to launch.

We are still on track to launch the new event calendar and web form to coincide with the new session, and the target date to switch over is Thursday 27 September.  We will be in touch with webmasters directly with more detailed information on the transition process, but in summary the intention is that everyone should stop entering events into the current calendar at close of play on Tuesday 18 September.

If you have an event that cannot be added before the close of play Tuesday 18 September, but requires immediate promotion prior to Thursday 27 September, we can provide support to add this, please contact Jennifer Corander to discuss further.  The staff team will then transfer events from the old calendar to the new to ensure that all the events you have entered will be visible on the website at launch.  

A programme of WebEx training sessions will be available to webmasters in the run up to launch, and we will be in touch with webmasters with more information on these.

If you have any questions please contact Jennifer Corander by email or phone.
