How to Create Featured Events in your Events Calendar

With a Timely account, you can highlight certain events as featured events in the public interface of your calendar. This will give an event a more prominent appearance in your events listing. Learn how to create featured events in your Timely calendar in this post.

In your Timely dashboard, you can "feature" an event when creating or editing it. The option Featured event will show as a checkbox between the event status options and internal notes.

Once you click on that checkbox, Publish or Save your event. The event selected will show as a "featured event" in the public view of your calendar, automatically.

Timely highlighted event will always be inside of a lined box, with a tag on the top left corner. The tag will have the "star" symbol and /or the word "featured", as shown in the image below.

There is no limit on how many events can be marked as featured. If you wish, you can set up all your events as featured events.

2. Customizing the Design

You can change the color of the featured event text and background. Simply go to Settings > Design > Custom Colors. Expand the Custom Colors option and you will see all the views that you can edit. Choose the appropriate view you want to change and click on the circle for Featured event text or Featured event background. 

Below you find an example of how to change these settings for the posterboard view:

When clicking over the circle, the color picker will open and you can choose a new color for the text or the background. After you are done choosing the new colors, scroll the page to the bottom and hit the Save button.
