Deploying Enrollment Manager Events

You have several options when deploying Enrollment Manager Events and integrating with your web site. The first thing to understand is the pages available by default when using Enrollment Manager Events.
 
Default Calendar: The default view for Enrollment Manager Events is the page available in your root directory. This address will always follow this naming convention: http://em.422x.com/orgname/departmentname. A sample is available here:http://em.422x.com/mcwayward/admissions. A link to your Default Calendar page is available withing Enrollment Manager by going to Admin-->Public Links. This page will display the standard header you've defined within the application, along with the calendar view as defined in the application.
 
Events List: Enrollment Manager Events also offers a view of events in list form. This address will always follow this naming convention: http://em.422x.com/orgname/departmentname/events.aspx. A sample is available here:http://em.422x.com/mcwayward/admissions/events.aspx. A link to your Events List page is available withing Enrollment Manager by going to Admin-->Public Links. This page will display the standard header you've defined within the application, along with the a list of all active, public events.
 
Featured Events List: Enrollment Manager Events also offers a view of featured events in list form. This address will always follow this naming convention: http://em.422x.com/orgname/departmentname/featuredevents.aspx. A sample is available here: http://em.422x.com/mcwayward/admissions/featuredevents.aspx. A link to your Events List page is available withing Enrollment Manager by going to Admin-->Public Links. This page will display the standard header you've defined within the application, along with the a list of all active, public featured events. Featured Events are those designated as 'Featured' when defining the event.

Using Secure Registration Forms

Registration Forms can be made secure by simply changing the URL used to direct constituents. If you wish to secure the registration, use https:// for your addresses rather than http://. For example, the link to your default calendar view would be https://em.422x.com/mcwayward/admissions. This will provide standard SSL Encryption when submitting information.

Deploying Events in an iFrame

As an alternative to using the views above, you can also deploy Enrollment Manager Events within an iFrame on your existing web site. This approach allows you the flexibility to use existing Content Management Systems you may have in place. By using an iFrame, you have complete control over the header, footer and menu structure surrounding the Enrollment Manager Events frame. There are three key pieces of information required to successfully deploy within an iFrame: size, source, and style.
  • Size: Your iFrame should be set to width=775 and height=600.
  • Source: Your iFrame source should be set to http://em.422x.com/orgname/departmentname/calendar.aspx where the orgname and departmentname match your settings in Enrollment Manager Events.
  • Style: Your iFrame is best displayed with scrolling=auto in case your event registration content requires a vertical scroll bar.

iFrame Sample Code

The following code shows a typical iFrame within HTML:
<iframe name="events" style="border:0px" scrolling=auto width=775 height=600 align=top frameborder=0
 
src="http://em.422x.com/mcwayward/admissions/calendar.aspx"></iframe >
</p>
 
The example above shows the following parameters:
  • Name: this is the name used within your HTML code and can be anything you'd like. This name doesn't display to the user.
  • Border: this changes the border style used around the frame. First is the border size defined in pixels, next comes the style of the border (standards include dotted, double, dashed, solid, groove, ridge, inset, outset), followed by the color (defined using hexidecimal numbers such as #3300FF or standard web colors of aqua, black, blue, fuchsia, gray, green, lime, maroon, navy, olive, purple, red, silver, teal, white, and yellow).
  • Scrolling: this determines when and if scroll bars are displayed within your iFrame. We recommend setting this to auto as shown above. The content of your window typically will not require scroll bars but if your customized content (such as Sessions and the Thanks Page) requires more than 600 pixels of height, a scroll bar will display. Other options for scrolling are Yes (scroll bars always appear) or NO (scroll bars never appear).
  • Width/Height: the typical settings for this are 775x600 to display the calendar and typical registration form content.
  • Align: this determines the location of the iFrame on your page. Options include top, middle, bottom, left, and right. Select whichever options best fits your page.
  • Frameborder: this will display, if desired, a standard 'window' frame around your iFrame. To display the frameborder, change this value to 1. To hide the frameborder, the value should be 0.
A sample page is attached to this article as a reference. To utilize the sample page, be sure to change the Source to match your calendar address.
