The calendar module presents you everything in a monthly view. Filter on projects, show or hide travel items or link the calendar to your iCal or Google calendar.
Events, Travel items and Blocks
Your calendar can be populated with different types of items; events, travel items and calendar blocks.
Events will display the color of their current status:
- Blue for events in interest
- Orange for events in option
- Green for confirmed events
Travel items are burgundy colored and have an icon indicating the type of travel item. Blocks are displayed as bright red in the calendar.
When you're sharing the calendar with another agency or artist, you'll be able to see the events and travels shared by them in the calendar. Shared events and travels are indicated by the sharing icon on the right of each item.
To only show specific items or artists in your calendar view, open the legend by clicking on the 'Calendar' button located on the top of the calendar. This option is only available when you're viewing the calendar from the 'All Projects' selection in the top left of the screen. Make a selection of projects you'd like to view in the calendar or select All Projects to view everything.
Project Calendar / Personal Calendar
To add a new item to the calendar of an artist you first need to browse to the calendar of the specific project. You can do this by selecting the project on the Project selector bar on the top left of your screen.
When adding an item to the calendar from the All Projects view, this will only be visible for you personal (Personal Note) or the agency users (Agency Item).
It's all in the name; events. Events can be enriched with more information such as the deal, advancing, contract, invoices, the guestlist and more. Events will show up in the color of their current status so it's easy to see the current status for each event in your calendar. You can add events by clicking the date and select the type of event you want to add to the calendar.
Each travel item can be designated as a flight, hotel stay, car pick up, boat or train ride. Use our flight integration to find flights with their corresponding flight number and have ABOSS do most of the heavy lifting. Attach passengers to each item to inform them with specific information such as their booking number or seat.
You can choose to show or hide travel items in the calendar, by switching the airplane switch in the upper right corner of the calendar.
Is the artist or a crew member temporarily unavailable for a specific period of time due to a holiday, sickness or other personal reasons? Add a block item to the calendar to keep track of each person right in the calendar.
Share the calendar with your mobile calendar
It's possible to add your ABOSS calendar to your personal calendar, this will automatically add new and updated events to your personal calendar on any device.
Add shows to Facebook and/or Bandsintown
You can add all your public events to your Facebook or Bandsintown page. The events can display ticket links, event website and weblinks to the location of the event. And most important, all upcoming shows will be visible for the audience.
Important note: Bandsintown will sync with ABOSS twice a day. So events might not be visible right away.
