Our Facebook Group is an excellent touchpoint for us, as it lets us keep in touch with our customers and see what you all are up to. Case in point: the UCLA School of Music is doing really awesome things with our plugins to help add calendaring functionality to their website.
The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music aims to cultivate models for musical studies that integrate exemplary scholarship and practices and engage through music with diverse communities on campus, throughout Los Angeles, and beyond.
And they use The Events Calendar products to help them achieve their goals. Read on to learn more about how they do it.
Once you land on the website, you’re greeted with a colorful, eye-catching homepage that makes it clear to the user that this school is passionate about its music.
And there’s a link to the Event Calendar right at the top of the page, so you can’t miss it. As you scroll down, you’ll also find a calendar widget in a list-style view to see a few of the upcoming events.
The main calendar page
Once you land on the main calendar page, the beautifully customized filter bar is one of the first things you’ll notice. As you can imagine, there are lots of different types of events that UCLA hosts, which helps keep users from being overwhelmed by the breadth of events. Having a Filter Bar can add to the user experience and help them find what they’re looking for.
Beyond that, there’s a custom link to subscribe to events. This functionality is available by default, although it usually sits below the calendar. We love this touch! You’ll also find that they’ve moved the date card inside the featured image in Photo View. You can style Photo View in different ways. See this Knowledgebase article for more information.
The single event page
Lastly, the single event page looks exactly how you’d expect from the UCLA School of Music. They’ve matched the same styling and colors across the website; all the information you need is available on the page. And for virtual events, there’s a link to view the livestream right on the page so that viewers know exactly where to find it.
