edocr Website Calendar How to place an easy to manage calendar on your website with the help of Google Sheets and edocr. Would you like to have a website calendar that is easy to update and manage. Well, it won't get any easier than this: https://friendscountyparkshc.com/calendar.html This edocr customer placed an edocr iframe onto their Wix website (does not have to be Wix) while having edocr feed calendar content directly from a Google Sheet template. 1. You need a Google Drive and an edocr account. Both are free. If you don't have, come back when you do. 2. In this example we use the Vertex Google Sheet Calendar template. 3. Once in your Google Drive, there are a few tricks to managing your calendar. On the bottom tabs there are months, and you will want to extend to additional years and delete months as they are in the past. First, way down on the bottom is a hidden row. Unhide and you will see how the date is set. For additional months you can just enter, say 5/1/2020, and that tab will display the appropriat May 2020 calendar. So to add months, go to the far right tab, right click and 'duplicate', change the name of tab to May 20 (for example) then change the hidden row to 5/1/2020, then hide row again. (This is a spreadsheet, so you can delete and add as you wish). When a month has passed, right click on its tab and delete. Hidden row has date code: Tab options upon right mouse click: 4. Now that your calendar is set up, you can type in the date cells (turn on word wrapping and adjust font size) or insert little images, like below: 5. Now, most importantly, place into edocr via the 'Share' button on the top right of your Google Sheet Calendar, selecting 'advanced', 'Anyone with the link' - then copy that link and 'Upload' in edocr in the 'Enter a URL' section, give a title, other info as you desire (see our blog on sharing Googledocs with edocr and also our blog on Creating Shares), and 'Publish'. 6. Once published there is an 'Embed' button on the top right of the edocr viewer. Click that, and there is the embed code for your website (see our blog on embedding edocr on a web page). 7. Very important. As you add and delete months, insert calendar information and images on your Google Sheet Calendar template, nothing goes live on your website until you 'Refresh' your edocr share. Edocr caches what it passes to the website iframe, and that cache has to be refreshed for changes to go live. If you are logged into edocr you will see 'Refresh' on both the thumbnail and full view of the edocr shared calendar, and once refreshed, the changes are live on your website. 8. Congratulations, you now have a calendar you can update and manage in only minutes. This blog post is also a Google Doc, so if you see an error or have a suggestion, we can quickly change it without breaking the URL!
