Partner handbook

(If you are looking for technical details of how to connect your existing calendar to PlaceCal, you’ll find that over in the Admin Handbook).

Partners are the people who manage the day-to-day running of their organisation. They might be involved in the legal structure of the organisation, or not. They run events like gardening clubs or venues such as churches.

For Partners, PlaceCal is a social and technological initiative to help you easily reach more people in your community. By becoming a PlaceCal partner, you make sure that local citizens, neighbourhood teams, and social prescribers like GPs and library assistants know everything you’re doing.

We will publish your events online in one more more regional daily events listings (PlaceCal), and occasionally in printed material on your behalf. We are also working to get local information onto local radio and newspapers, and even new digital bus stop signs!

This guide contains:

  1. Benefits: ways PlaceCal will help your organisation and who will use the information hosted by PlaceCal.
  2. How do I join PlaceCal?: the practical process of getting your information and events online and what to expect from PlaceCal.
  3. What kind of skills you will need in your organisation to make PlaceCal work, and how to fit PlaceCal into your existing capacity with very little effort.
  4. Support, training and maintenance: how we will work together to keep your listings on PlaceCal up-to-date.

How much work is it to use PlaceCal?

Once PlaceCal has been set up, it’s almost no effort to maintain on an ongoing basis. It’s not another event platform like Facebook or Eventbrite, since it works by simply reading your existing calendar software. If you organise your events with a paper diary, we will help you set up a digital calendar using software you probably already have in-house.
