As you may have noticed on the Parish & School websites we are in the process of transitioning to a new centralized calendar system. This change is part of a larger Facilities Management Software that will integrate Work Orders, Space Management, Life Cycle Management, and more into one system. By moving to a centralized calendar system we hope to improve and avoid any scheduling conflicts, better plan for setup and potential clean up needs, and hopefully make the process for reserving space at Nativity much simpler.
As we move forward with the Space Management section of the software there are a few things that will be changing that we want to make you aware of.
- Starting July 1 the Google Calendars that we have used have officially been retired and will no longer be updated. They will be removed from the websites and updated with the new calendars. There is no action you need to take related to the Google Calendars at this time as the calendars will be archived in August which will remove them from your calendar list if you had subscribed to them.
- You may want to subscribe to the new calendars. Instructions on how to do this can be found in this How to Guide with the instructions on how to subscribe via different applications and the links to subscribe to.
- If you need to request space on campus you can now do it (preferred) all online! Simply go to https://schedule.nativity-cincinnati.org and fill out the required information to request the space you would like to reserve. The system will automatically look for conflicts and let you know if there are any. Once submitted your event will be reviewed by staff and then approved and placed on the calendar. Please note simply submitting the form does not mean your request is approved. Once staff has reviewed and approved your request you will be notified via email that your space request was approved.
If you have any questions about the new Event Management System or the Facilities Management Software please contact Rudy Gruenke, Director of Systems & Special Projects at (513) 531-0209 or email@example.com
