Promoting events and groups on social media

On each event's "View" page in the Calendar module, and on each group's "View" page in the Small Groups module, there is a Share button at the top, which includes options to share the public-facing event/group page to Facebook and Twitter, or to add the event to your preferred desktop calendar application like Outlook, Mac Calendar or Google Calendar.

Note that the Share button is only visible for future-dated events, and active and future-dated groups

Facebook

Sharing to Facebook may require you to modify your Facebook App settings. When sharing an event page or group page to Facebook, you may receive an error message like this...

To resolve this, log in to Facebook and navigate to your "Apps" settings and enable "Apps, Websites and Plug-ins". Then try sharing your event or group to Facebook again.

Sharing events from within the public-facing event pages

For future-dated events that have visibility settings enabled for Show in My ChurchSuite (without any Tag restrictions), Show in Embed or Show in Connect, the public-facing Event Page includes social media icons in the top right corner of the Event Page, so that those accessing the page can also promote your events on their personal social media feeds if they wish. They can also add events to their preferred desktop calendar application like Outlook, Mac Calendar or Google Calendar.
