 7.3 Uploading a New Ride Calendar
 

 

Introduction: Every quarter, the club produces a ride calendar for the next season. Members who are authorised to upload a new ride calendar can now upload it directly to the server. The documents manager will create a database entry for the calendar and allow you to upload both the master word document and PDF to the server in one operation. The new ride calendar will instantly appear in the non-members calendar page and the members area Club Information area under Calendar sub-menu. The non-members area will only show the two most recent calendars where the members area will show all available calendars.

Note: The member must be given administrator or calendar editor permissions in security to be able to access this function.

 

Use the Microsoft word template provided in the ZIP package (logon Members Area, Club Information TAB then Software sub-menu to get the package)  to create the ride calendar for the quarter using Microsoft Word. Install a Word to PDF converter (See CUTEPDF - logon Members Area, Club Information TAB then Software sub-menu to get the package). When the word document is complete, then print the document and select CUTEPDF as the printer - it will then ask you what name to give the PDF document. You should now have two documents, one Word document and one PDF document ready for uploading.

 

1) Logon to the members area of the website then select the administration TAB.

 

2) Select the Documents Maintenance program from the administration page.
