The New and Improved Faithlife Calendar

We made some changes to the Faithlife calendar to make your life easier. Now, you can see and do everything you need right from the calendar tab.

Your status now appears next to each event. This field reminds you if you are hosting, attending, or undecided about an event, and you can change your status without leaving the full calendar view. Click on the highlighted text, and you can select your response to the event invitation from the drop-down menu.

The calendar also displays more details about each event. You can see the type of event, in addition to the name of the event and any groups affiliated with the event. If you were invited as a part of a group, or if you invited an entire group, that group’s name and image appear below the event’s date and time.

You can also edit event details using this handy gear icon:

Click on the gear icon next to the event you want to change, then alter or add anything you need. When you save, you’ll return to the calendar view. If you have a recurring event, such as a weekly Bible study, you can use this same wheel to download Outlook and iCal files to put the event into your regular calendar software.

We’ve also added the ability to filter the types of events you want to display. You can filter events by group, or choose “My events” to display events not associated with a group, like family events, personal reminders, and appointments—things that can get lost in everything else you have going on.

If you aren’t already using it, the calendar tab is more useful and dependable than ever. With these updates, it’s even easier to keep track of what’s happening in your faith community.

    How about an RSS feed option for calendars?
    Our Church app provider can use RSS feeds to our app, but I don’t see anything like that in Faithlife. We would love to use faithlife calendar more for bulletins, proclaim & our church app but right now Google calendar or Facebook calendar integrate better. An RSS feed would really make faithlife more useful.
    Thanks for everything so far! Lots of potential
