All I want for Christmas is... dark mode?

‘Tis the season for giving, and today we’re giving you: updates, bug fixes, and some legal stuff! 


  • If you love our embeddable calendars, this one is for you! We’ve added (what we think is an incredibly sleek) new dark mode for our embeddable calendars. In addition to “always” dark mode, we’ve also added an automatic dark/light mode that switches based on the end-users browsers' settings. To use it, you will need to create a custom template for your embeddable calendar and apply that template.
    • Documentation on how to do create a custom template using one of our new themes can be found here
  • Linguaphiles rejoice! We have added the option to have the recurring rule explanation (e.g. “Repeats Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 times”) be translated into 12 different languages. To use it, you will need to create a custom event landing page template & change the language of that template. 
    • Documentation on how to do this can be found here.
    • Supported languages include: German, English, Spanish, French, Italian, Dutch, Persian, Finish, Hebrew, Polish, Portuguese, Swedish

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • When sending update emails to your RSVP attendees, we had been ignoring the custom “From” name and email address that we allow you to set (the automatic confirmation and reminder emails were working correctly). This was just one of those things that we missed, but has now been fixed so your users will always know who you are when you contact them via our system.
  • When using custom HTML questions in an RSVP form, the attendee notification sent to account managers would pull in the value of the previous questions. Instead of sending the responses once (as intended), there was a bug that was inserting the responses multiple times in the email. For a minute there, we got to live out our Oprah fantasy via our emails by saying “YOU GET A RESPONSE, AND YOU GET THAT SAME RESPONSE, AND YOU GET THAT SAME RESPONSE”.  Sadly, our days of Oprah-style emails are behind us, but thanks everyone for your patience while we got that fixed. 

The Boring Stuff…

...unless you’re on the compliance team, then woo!

  • We have updated the DPA (Data Processing Agreement) on our website. The following changes will go into effect from January 1st, 2023 :
    • the new EU SCCs of 2021
    • the UK Transfer Addendum of March 2022
    • modifications to cover transfers of personal data from Switzerland in accordance with Swiss law (FADP)

If you’re still reading this, then thanks for keeping up with the AddEventians, and we hope everyone has a happy holiday season and New Year!
