IP.Board 3.2.0: Calendar

Back in February, we posted a series of blog entries about improvements to our Calendar application (part 1 2 3 4 5). To go along with these technical changes and improvements, we've completely overhauled the calendar interface to modernize it and improve usability. This blog entry will review those changes so you know what you can expect when IP.Board 3.2 is available.

Main Calendar View

When first visiting the calendar, you're presented with a refreshed calendar view. The main calendar now takes up the full width of the page, since it's the most important content on the page. Mini calendars now appear below - available, but not hogging space.

The new filter bar above the calendar allows you to switch seamlessly between month, week and day view.

The menu next to the page title allows you to switch the calendar you're currently viewing.

Week View

Week view hasn't changed substantially, but does continue the filter bar and mini calendar styling introduced on the main page.

In both the month and week views, you can double click a date as a quick shortcut to viewing that day.

Day View

Day view presents a much cleaner overview of events and birthdays taking place. In addition, a quick overview of members who have RSVP'd to an event are shown.

Event View

The redesigned event view shows full information about the event, together with comments and the RSVP list.

We hope these improvements to the Calendar application go down well with your community, and spark more use by members! The new interface together with new features and improvements have given the Calendar a completely fresh feel, and we hope you like it!
