Re: Events Module Questions

We here at the National Museum of Naval Aviation use the Events Module as a place to organize our internal exhibits/displays or loaned out exhibits/displays. It is a great tool for organization for exhibits that are not used year round (or permanent) so that the next time it is used it can be assembled more quickly. With the ability to put imagery in this module it makes it so great so the next person who designs the exhibit can see what was done last time for ideas. We did not start using it heavily until this past year and we have found it invaluable. I recommend all museums to look in to using it to its potential.

When an Exhibit (Event) is put together the objects are put into the module in the objects tab and we then photograph the exhibit when complete and put the images in the multimedia tab.

The email notifications worked like this (when we used it previously): if you assign a certain task relating to the event to Jim Smith and you enter his name into the tasks tab and he has a party record and in his party record he has a email address then KE should automatically send him a notification of the task that you have assigned from the Events module. We don't use that feature here because we had some problems when we used it with the conservation module a couple years ago, but that is how it work with that module.

I hope the above makes sense and I didn't ramble to much. I really like the events module and I have tried to get my co-workers to use it as much as possible because I think it is so great.

Oops. The zip file didn't work either, so I just snipped off the last screenshot. I can attach it if you really need it.
