Discourse Update - New Fancy Feature
With great honor, I would like to introduce you to a pretty big feature that has been introduced into this community!
Meet my new girl "Date."
This new feature is going to be huge as it can be used for literally anything!
From your typical events to FNF’s start and end time (So everyone knows when it starts and ends in their timezone) to even our weekly IFATC Schedules!
Here’s How It Work’s:
|Step One: Accessing The Insert Date Feature||When creating a topic (#live:events, #atc), you will see the little options icon in the main dashboard. Click on that “options” icon and click on “Insert Date”|
|Step Two: Inserting The Date||The first thing that you will see when you are Inserting a date is the current date For your current time zone. Click on the date and a calendar pop up will appear. Click on the date that you would like to select for your event, etc|
|Step Three: Inserting The Time||Next to the date, you will see the current time. Click on the time and a pop up will appear. Select the time that you wish for it to code into other time zones (Time of the event in your time zone)|
|Step Four: Recurrence||Below the time and date, you will see “Recurrence”. This is how many times this time will be used (IFATC’s Weekly Schedule, FNF). You have the option between every day, every week, every two weeks, etc)|
More Options will appear if you hit "Advanced Options"
|Step Five: Formatting The Time||You have the option of displaying the time in many different ways. May 20, 2018, May 20, 2018 2:25 AM, Sunday, May 20, 2018 2:25 AM, 2:25:00 AM, and TZ|
|Step Six: Displaying In Different Time Zones||Here is the big thing! This is where you get to let other people know what time the event begins for them in their timezone! Simply “Search” a major city. Emphasis on Major City (Examples: Tokyo, Hong Kong, London, Los Angles, Denver, Chicago, New York, Dubai, Sydney). After you have a city selected, click on it and it will display in the timezone search bar! You can have a maximum of 5 that it can seach for you… But you can still enter in all 24 Times zones! by manually typing it in after Inserting it (Step Seven)|
|Step Seven: Insert||In the bottom left you will see the text displaying “Insert”. Press that and view your beautiful masterpiece!|
