Bite-Sized Updates from Your Calendar Snack Kitchen! πŸͺ

Hey there, Snack-lovers! Just like you can’t resist sneaking into the kitchen to grab a midnight treat, we can’t resist updating you with the latest goodies from our Calendar Snack lab. So, let’s dig in and see what delicious tidbits we’ve got for you today!

Release Notes πŸ₯–:

1. Calendar Snack: Your Event Butler! 🎩🍿

Calendar Snack is like your personal butler for events (minus the British accent, sadly). With just a few clicks, you can whip up, tweak, or cancel events faster than you can say β€œSnack attack!” Send out those oh-so-important calendar invites through snazzy landing pages, your email marketing campaigns, or even straight to a list of VIP emails. And the cherry on top? Get detailed reports on the number of invites sent and those sweet, sweet RSVPs you’ve received. Pretty neat, right?

2. Au Revoir, Free Version! πŸ‘‹πŸ’°

From November 1, 2023, we’ve decided to give our FREE version a well-deserved retirement party. The Annual Subscription Paid Version has gracefully taken over the reins. It’s like switching from regular chips to gourmet truffle chips. Pure elegance!

3. AWS Backend Processing Improvements

We are currently re-working our special Calendar Snack recipes, to make the kitchen work even smarter than before. As we are doing this, there may be bugs, slower processing, or any number of situations as we work through the process. Keep in mind, our first priority is always to “Send Out The Snacks!”, but some of our other features or functions (different sending methods, reporting, etc.) may have slight imperfections. (see known issues)

Known Issues (Because No Snack is Perfect!): πŸ§‚

1. Google Calendar: Playing Hide ‘n Seek with Locations! πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈπŸ“

If you’ve been using Google Calendar to create your Calendar Snacks and find that the location’s playing hide ‘n seek, it’s not just you! But don’t worry, our Microsoft Outlook snacks are still serving locations on a silver platter. No hide ‘n seek games there!

2. Double Dips Not Allowed! 🚫🍦

For all those eager beavers who click on that RSVP button more than once, or decide to grace the landing page twice with their email presence for the same event, we currently don’t send a second calendar or notification. Think of it as saving you from the double dip embarrassment at the snack table! The only other time this might pop up is if you’ve graced them with a VIP List direct send invite.

3. RSVP Reporting: Slightly Mysterious! πŸ•ΆοΈπŸ”

If you ever feel like your RSVP reporting has a mind of its own, you’re not entirely wrong. But, before you get your detective hat on, know that it’s not a “bug” on our side. Some Calendar Applications, cough Microsoft Outlook cough, allow users to play spy games with how they send RSVP responses to event organizers. If the Invitee is allowed to choose how RSVP responses are sent (instead of just sending the RSVP – the counts could be wrong).

4. All Sending Sources is currently set to TEST! πŸ•ΆοΈπŸ”

It’s not you, it’s us. To ensure all Invites are sent upon request to your important Invitees, and to make sure they don’t have any questions about “where it is?” – we have temporary set all RSVP Source reporting to TEST. We realize this causes a bit of problem when you are using more than one Source for to send Invitations, but if you read #4 above, we have another little bug in the process. We are working on both, hopefully they will be fixed soon.

And that’s the snack scoop! Stay hungry for updates, and always remember: with Calendar Snack, every event’s a treat! πŸ«πŸ—“οΈ Keep snacking and scheduling!
