Add Multiple Locations for Event

We’re excited to announce that you may add an event with multiple saved locations.  Many customers setup saved locations as rooms, facilities, or even equipment.  If you’re using CalendarWiz to manage facilities and rooms, your scheduling job just got easier.  If you don’t use us for room scheduling, now is the perfect time to start!

In the above example, a church added an event that takes place in the church hall, kitchen and parish center.  The system will prevent double booking of all 3 locations as long as conflict prevention is enabled for these locations.

 

To turn on events at multiple locations:

Go to Admin Menu > Options >  check to “Enable event multiple mirror locations” > Save

 

Now, when you add an event at a location, you’ll notice that you can add a primary location and select additional mirror locations for an event.

More on Primary and Mirror locations:

For multi-location events, you’ll always enter a Primary Location first, then choose additional locations from the Mirror Location list.

The Primary Location appears in event titles on the calendar, upcoming event lists, and other website plugins.  The Primary Location will display map and weather links if you’ve selected that option for the location.

All locations appear in event popups and event emails.  All locations with conflict prevention turned on will be checked for event conflicts.

We welcome you to  email us at support@calendarwiz.com with any questions or feedback that you have.

Hi: We use CalendarWiz for church facility calendaring. This is a great feature as we often book multiple spaces at one time. Is it possible to export a report that shows multiple locations (e.g., the primary location and any mirror locations?)

Great feedback. I’ve forwarded your request for mirror location export to our Development Team. In the meantime, you may find the List and Day view helpful for listing the primary and mirror locations for an event:)

Really like the mirror location feature but is it possible to also show the mirror locations on the calendar….or am I just missing something?

Yes, we offer a couple of options in viewing the mirror locations in the calendar view.

1. List & Day views include a full list of mirror location details
2. Month view has an option to add ,… next to the primary location name.
This serves as an indicator of mirror locations without overcrowding the calendar.
3. Location Filter in calendar views can be helpful for seeing all events at a location, including mirror locations.

Great question, Patricia. Thanks!
