The Chronicle has a new easy-to-use web calendar

Our new web calendar is easier to use and has new features to help you share your events.

Maybe you’ve noticed we have a new online calendar on our website. It’s definitely not the old one.

The new calendar went live this past week, and we’re pretty excited about it.

Unlike our “What’s Happening” print calendar, the online calender is not ruled by deadlines or available space.

Unlike the old web calendar, the new calendar requires no login or password, and the form to submit an item is easy to use.

Once you’ve submitted your event, you can designate where you wish the calendar item to appear within the Black Press B.C. family of websites. You can instantly spread the word about your event to Facebook and Twitter. Once you find the event you’re looking for, you can add it to your own calendar and e-mail it to yourself.

Submitting events to our web calendar is free. There’s room to add contact information, a website, a description and an image.

Someone here in the Chronicle newsroom will check each item before it posts just to make sure it complies with our simple guidelines, which lead off the submission form. Basically, please stick to community events.

The calendar is located on our home page (or any story page) halfway down the right-hand side.

Our online calendar is a great way to create buzz about your organization or your event.

We’re excited about it, and we hope you will use it often to plan your week’s activities and to share your community events.

We want to be your community resource, and this is one more way in which we can serve you.
