Enhanced filtering and sorting for events in the Event Manager

created

With today's update to Soapbox, we significantly upgraded the filtering and sorting options in the administrator's Event Manager so you can easily find and manage exactly the events you're looking for. Whether you're managing a few events, a complex set of events using our Taxonomy system, or a full course catalog with our Classes app, the Event Manager offers something for everyone.

Here's a complete rundown of the various updates:

  • Added date filtering options to the Event Manager so an admin can filter for All Events, Upcoming Events, Past Events or events within a given date range
  • When searching for events within a given range, if a site is using the Classes app, the administrator can choose to search by either the Start date or Ends On date for the class
  • Added state filtering to show All Events, Published events, or Unpublished events
  • Enhanced the Event column to include class-specific date for the Course, Semester, and Class Code, for sites with the Classes app
  • Hyperlinked the Course in the Event column to open the Course edit view
  • Replaced the Start Time and End Time columns with a single Date and Time column that varies its format based on an event being a single day event, a multi-day event, or - for sites with the Classes app - a class that repeats over a series of dates
  • Replaced sorting by clicking the column heading hyperlinks with a sort drop down that allows for sorting by the following:
    • Event Name (ASC)
    • Event Name (DESC)
    • Venue Name (ASC)
    • Venue Name (DESC)
    • Start Date & Time (ASC)
    • Start Date & Time (DESC)
    • Ends On Name (ASC) - for sites with the Classes app only
    • Ends On Name (DESC) - for sites with the Classes app only
    • Author (ASC)
    • Author (DESC)
    • Soapbox Id (ASC)
    • Soapbox Id (DESC)
  • Created an Advanced Search which can be expanded or contracted by the administrator
  • Added filtering by Venue through a type-ahead field that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value
  • Added filtering by Host through a type-ahead field that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value
  • Added filtering by Term through a type-ahead field, for those using Taxonomy with the Events app, that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value
  • Added filtering by Course through a type-ahead field that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value. For sites with the Classes app only.
  • Added filtering by Instructor through a type-ahead field that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value. For sites with the Classes app only.
  • Added filtering by Semester through a type-ahead field that will suggest values from the Events app as the admin enters a value. For sites with the Classes app only.
  • Added filtering by Class Code. For sites with the Classes app only.

Happy Soapboxing!
