Using the Calendar
Click Add to Calendar at the bottom of an event's details page and select the appropriate calendar type to add the event to your personal digital calendar.
You can also elect to connect your O-Key, Facebook or Google account to the calendar to:
- Save your own personalized list of events of interest that you find on website calendars
- Store personal information and preferences, such as your account time zone
- Manage reminders and event update notifications for saved event
- Track and manage calendar event submissions
At the bottom of the event's details page click Event Link to get a permalink that can be shared with others.
Note: Copying the URL from the browser's address bar will not give you a link to an event's details page.
Use the submit event form to create an event on the OSU Calendar.
Any user with an O-Key account may submit events to the calendar. The events will be moderated and approved by the administrator team in a timely manner.
Images submitted to the calendar should follow these guidelines:
- The recommended image size is 1024x512 px
- Maximum File Size 1MB
- Allowable file types: BMP, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, and PNG
- Images should be appropriate in content and relevant to the event
- Images must follow terms of service.
If the event has not been approved you may withdraw the event from the calendar using the link in your confirmation email. This will remove it from the approval queue. A new event can then be created using the event submission form.
Once events are approved, they are no longer editable through the event submission form. Do not submit duplicate events. Please contact the calendar owner for changes to events after they have been approved.

If you need access to edit and approve events on the calendar, an editor license will need to be purchased. Please contact OSU Communications at email@example.com for additional details.
You have three options for getting rid of events on your calendar: you can delete, remove, or cancel them.
Delete, Remove and Cancel Events
Events created via the event submission form are placed on a subcalendar called "Events to be approved". In order for these events to show on the calendar, you must move them from the Events to be approved calendar to your published calendar.
To add a map link, enter an address in the location field or use the 'Enter Latitude/Longitude' feature after getting your building coordinates from a google map. Click add map link. Once the map link has been added, remove the text from the location box if this is an on-campus event.
- Always test the map link before saving your event to ensure accuracy.

Development and Integration
Spuds are preconfigured widgets that you can use to display calendars on your department site. There are three types of spuds: calendar spuds, promotion spuds and control spuds.
Calendar spuds display your main calendar on your website. These can be a detailed list view of upcoming events, a simple table-style view, or a more traditional calendar month view.
Control spuds are generally used in conjunction with a calendar spud. same page as your main calendar spud. Visitors interact with control spuds to change the state of the main calendar spud. For example, you can add control spuds that let visitors change the view, filter the events they see, and search by keyword or location.
Promotion spuds help you increase visibility for your calendar and events across your website. These can be used on pages that do not contain your main calendar. For example a short list of upcoming events on the front page of your website.
We have preconfigured several spuds for you to use on your website.
To see which spuds have been enabled and get code for embedding in your site, please visit the spud gallery.
You will need to know your calendar's webname to embed spuds in your website.
Note: only spuds which are compatible with OSU's theme and meet accessibility guidelines will be available.
Each calendar includes an iCal, RSS, Atom and CSV feed.
You will need to know your calendar's webname to access the RSS feed.
iCal - https://www.trumba.com/calendars/[calendar-webname].ics
RSS - https://www.trumba.com/calendars/[calendar-webname].rss
Atom - https://www.trumba.com/calendars/[calendar-webname].xml
CSV - https://www.trumba.com/calendars/[calendar-webname].csv
Replace [calendar-webname] with your calendar's webname
You can promote your current day's or week's events on-site by customizing promotion spuds to create effective digital signage displays.
