Displaying Planning Pod Calendars on your Website

You can display an availability or booking calendar on your website to show potential clients venue availability or attendees upcoming events. The information displayed pulls directly from your Planning Pod calendar and is displayed on your website via the provided code.

Using this feature you can:

  • Display an Availability Calendar, Event Calendar or both on your website
  • Display items by Events or Venue
  • Choose to include or exclude Leads, Holds, Booked Events and Archived Events
  • Set and Display Business Hours 

The availability calendar is a great way to display the open dates for a venue or planning firm to take on additional bookings. This can be displayed on the contact/information page on your website to ease the booking process. The availability Calendar will identify times that are booked, but not include information regarding the nature or name of the event.

To set up the availability Calendar:

  1. Click on "Calendars" from the main navigation menu
  2. Click on "Import/Export" and choose "Embed Planning Pod Calendars" from the drop-down menumceclip0.png
  3. Choose to "Display Bookings by Event" or "Display Bookings by Venue/Location"
  4. Use the check boxes to choose what types of booking you want to show (Open Leads, Holds, Booked Events, Archived Events)
  5. Choose to show or remove business hours *NOTE: if you choose to show business hours make sure you update them below.
  6. Click "Get Availability Calendar Embed Code" at the top of the screen.
  7. Copy the code and paste it into your Web Editing Software or provide it to your developer to display on your website. 

The Event Calendar offers a different set of information, allowing an event business or venue to display all events on their website directly from the Planning Pod calendar. This is a wonderful way to keep potential attendees up-to-date on upcoming events. The Event Calendar will include the name of the event on the Public facing Calendar.
