How to use our calendar

0 Comments | Leave a Comment

The Gotta Pixel calendar is located on our site and can be found in the toolbar when you’re in the forum or gallery. You can also bookmark the calendar.

Step 1 – Changing Calendar Views

Once you are the calendar page take a look at the top of the page. Here you will find the tabs that allow you to switch your views. You can view yearly, monthly, weekly and daily. The default view is monthly and most of this tutorial will explain that view.


Step 2 – Changing Months

Right below that area is the quick jump toolbar. Here you can change the date and year and if you press GO, it will quickly jump to that time frame. You can also click the Today button and it will show you today highlighted on the calendar. If yo press the left and right arrow you can advance to the previous month or the next month.


Step 3 – Reading the Calendar

Below that toolbar is the calendar. Each date has events posted for it. If you click on one of those events, it will open up the description page for that event so you can read more about it. The calendar will list our daily challenges, who is up for the Designer Spotlight/Daily Download and upcoming events (chats, challenges, contests, etc.).

Times that are shown on the calendar are set to Eastern Time. The forum does convert those times for you based on the time zone you set up during registration. If you would like to change your personal time zone, go to the very top part of the page, on the right side in the forum and click Settings > General Settings > Time Zone:.

Step 4 – Sign up for Reminders

You can also set the calendar up to send you a reminder when an event is about to happen.

  1. Find the event on the calendar and click on it so the description page opens.
  2. At the bottom of the description post, find the words “Request Reminder for this Event” and click on it.
  3. Pick the time frame you would like to be sent a reminder email and save.
