Event calendars for useful user interaction.

YMCA Interactive Calendar

If your company is one driven by the ongoing promotion of various events, an interactive calendar may be a useful addition to your website. JTech’s advanced web developers recently worked with two Montana businesses to add interactive calendars to their sites, both of which have been a huge success.

The Gallatin Valley YMCA color codes their calendar items — class registration deadlines, summer camps and curriculums — in a clean, highly-usable presentation. Clicking an item brings you to a details page and when applicable, a link to an event registration application.

Shipton’s Big R, a full-service farm and ranch supply store, is thrilled with their interactive calendar, which is developed responsively for a great user experience at any screen size. Shipton’s Big R hosts a dizzying variety of local events, from pet vaccination clinics to music festivals to handgun training courses. Because they have five locations in Montana and Wyoming, the event details page has a directions map and allows you to add an event directly to your device’s appointment calendar as well as download an event flyer.

An interactive calendar can be a great addition to your website if your organization or business organizes events and needs a place to promote them that is easily accessible to your customers. Contact JTech to see if integrating a calendar into your website is the right addition for you.
