WebCMS Upgrade Improves
IPFW Events Calendar Functionality
calendar The IPFW events calendar is back, and it's better than ever. WebCMS calendar publishers won't notice big changes, but the public will. The calendar has been streamlined: a week's worth of events are displayed on a single page, and viewing details no longer requires a "click-through."

Take a look at the new, improved IPFW events calendar. If you are already a calendar publisher but you've been putting off adding summer and fall semester events, log in to the WebCMS and let the public know about the exciting events that are taking place at IPFW!
