We’re happy to announce that the new Stanford Events Calendar experience is live. Visiting events.stanford.edu will now take you to our new home on the Localist platform.
The old system will remain online at events-legacy.stanford.edu until December 1, 2022, to coincide with Stanford Web Services’ end of Drupal 7 support. It will not be the full source of truth for events at Stanford; we’re keeping it online so that site owners using the Drupal 7 events importer can do so until they’ve migrated their sites to D9. Those sites on Drupal 9 have a new event importer available; see the documentation here.
An overview of the new system
Not sure where to get started? We have a guide for that!
We’ve produced a walkthrough guide that will give you a good overall look at the new system and how Event Seekers and Event Publishers will interact with it.
Check out our publishing guide if you’re a new Event Admin ready to post your first event.
For in-depth information, see the rest of this site. Localist also has extensive documentation on their support site.
We’ve created an open Slack channel, #events-calendar-help, for you to reach us directly on weekdays. We have Office Hours on Monday and Wednesday, 12-1 pm Pacific. You can ask questions any other time of day, but we’ll likely be a bit slower in responding.
We also have a Service Now form specifically for Events Calendar questions. Using this channel for communicating is great because your question will be distributed to several people, all of whom should be able to help.
