The latest feature to be added to our events system is email notifications. If you are an administrator on any calendar, you now have the option to receive emails whenever a new event has been recommended to your calendar or when an approved event on your calendar is modified by a non-administrator (therefore changing its status back to “pending” so you can review the changes made before making the event live again on your calendar). These email notifications should help you keep tabs on the new and updated events on your calendar and enable you to more quickly approve and pass along those events.
To change your email preferences, simply go to the “Edit Permissions” screen for the calendar you administer and wish to receive emails for, find your username in the list, and select “Yes” for “Receive email notifications?”, save your setting by pressing “Update”, and you are ready to go. The email preference is per-calendar to provide you the finest-grain control, so if you administer multiple calendars you will need to adjust your settings for each one.
