College Event Calendar

The Tandem Calendar is a very powerful tool for an organization of any size. That is why we are not surprised to see the recent interest from colleges and universities in the Tandem event calendar. We are glad to see that Salem State, University of Washington, University of Alabama, and Ohio Northern University are all now using their Tandem calendar. Here are just a few reasons community colleges and universities are using Tandem:

Community Colleges: Needing a way to rent unused facilities to community groups, community colleges often benefit from the ability to place ALL school events in one place online. With this ability, community colleges can rent facilities with confidence knowing that the facility is not being used by any other group at that time. Tandem simplifies the process further by allowing community groups to pay online using a credit card.

Universities: With a large amount of events occurring in just each department, universities need an easy way to communicate events across all departments. With the Tandem calendar, we often see music or athletic departments benefit the most from its use. These departments benefit greatly from the ability to submit internal and external event requests, create customizable approval systems, and the ability to make certain events private.

How To: Import Your Events into Tandem

When you first begun to use Tandem, you are likely going to want to transfer old events from your previous system into Tandem. You can easily do this using our import events feature built within Tandem. To begin, you will need to export your events from your previous system into a CSV file. This is a very common file as it is a very simple Excel file. After you have this file, we recommend you download the import template that we provide to you within Tandem.


The example file that you have now downloaded includes all of the possible fields for an event within Tandem. The ones that are necessary are properly marked and the ones that are optional are also available. At this point, you will want to modify the events you exported from your previous system to have the same headers (titles) as the example file has.

Once this is done, you are able to import your modified events into Tandem. The system will then automatically alert you to any errors.
