powered by Trumba's

 iCal feeds


Use of Trumba by health and fitness clubs continues to grow. With Trumba Spuds and Custom Objects, fitness centers can easily integrate class schedules with multiple club locations. Sport & Health has recently launched their new site, using Trumba Connect to power their class schedules for all 25 club locations across D.C., Maryland and Northern Virginia. Trumba's filtering lets site visitors easily find a club by location or amenity offered.




Sport & Health uses Custom Objects, Trumba's content publishing tool, to track their master list of classes.  Spuds with Custom Objects enable members to select a club location to see all classes at that club location.  Using Custom Objects makes the data entry for Sport & Health easier and faster, saving time by not having to duplicate class data shared at multiple club locations.    


Trumba is also helping Sport & Health provide mobile functionality to club members.  Trumba's iCal feeds power Sport & Health clubs' class schedules on their mobile application, so members can view class schedules and add classes to their calendar while on the go.



With iCal feeds enabling mobile functionality, Custom Objects, and Trumba's many other easy-to-use features, Sport & Health's site and mobile app show how Trumba gets information easily and quickly to customers and members, whether they are online or on the go. For more information about Trumba Connect contact [email protected].

  Publish Customized views using filter views


Filter views are a handy way to display only certain events that meet specific criteria you establish, providing your website visitors with a quick and easy way to view just the information they are interested in.  Using filter views, you can pre-filter spud and feed content by a combination of custom field values, calendars or custom object folders.

(In order to use filter views you must be using at least one custom field or have your content organized into multiple calendars/folders.)

In the example below, a filter view has been set up to display the children's story times taking place at two of the Kitsap Regional Library's nine branch locations (by pre-filtering on three fields - location, age, and event type).  The resulting filter view can be linked to or displayed as a separate web page so that visitors can easily be directed to just those events.




Filter views also provide a simple way to create a promotion spud so that you can highlight specific upcoming events.




Using filter views lets you publish subsets of content in different sections of your website, all with a similar look and feel. It is also a convenient way to link to pre-filtered views of content, or publish subsets of content in promotion spuds. Filter views are easy to set up and give you even more control over how your events are displayed. Learn more about setting up filter views.
