EventShare

National RTAP EventShare is a free, web-based application that enables you to share and search for events. As the EventShare administrator, you can create an online calendar for your website, where you can post events in an electronic, user-friendly format for your customers and partners. You can also share your events globally with other organizations using National RTAP EventShare, connecting all users to events taking place nationwide. EventShare viewers can search for events and share them with friends and colleagues.

Getting Started

As with all National RTAP web apps, you must be logged into the Cloud in order to access EventShare.  If you do not have a Cloud Account, create one by clicking the “Cloud Signup” button in the top right corner of this page.  If you already have a Cloud Account, log in using the “Cloud Login” button also in the top right corner.  To learn more, please see the What is the Cloud? page on the main National RTAP website, or return to the Support Center homepage to watch the Cloud Overview.

Once logged into the Cloud, if you do not see EventShare as one of the web apps on the left hand side of your dashboard, contact your Cloud Signup Admin (first person in your organization to sign up) to request authorization. Alternatively you can email support@nationalrtap.org.

Before you begin to use EventShare to promote events on your website, there are some tasks to complete and questions to consider:

  • Gather all of your upcoming events.
  • Decide how you would like to display your events.  There are three viewing options that you can enable on your website:  Calendar View (allows a user to view events by day, week or month), Calendar List View (allows users to search events by event type, event topic and date), and Featured Events View (allows you to tag events as ‘featured,’ and these events will be listed in a separate box to attract greater attention from viewers).
  • Decide who in your organization will be responsible for making sure the calendar is updated regularly after the launch.
  • Decide if you would like a thumbnail to appear next to your events and what image you will use (many organizations use their logo as their thumbnail image).
  • Decide if you would like to share your events globally (with other organizations using EventShare) or locally (with just the visitors to your website).
  • Create a plan that details how you will market your new online calendar and let your customers and partners know they can go there for event information.
  • Review the Getting Started Guide to get an overview of all of the functions that are available through EventShare.  The Getting Started Guide also provides details about creating a Cloud Account and gives step-by-step instructions about how to use each of the functions in the web app.  You can either download this document below or view it online by clicking on the “Getting Started Guide” link in the left toolbar.
