New calendar feature added to live streaming
Today during the REC.VC maintenance window (Thursday, 6.00 – 8.00 AM CEST) we released a new feature enabling REC.VC users to use their existing calendar applications to schedule REC.VC live streaming events. The new calendar feature is available when creating / editing a live stream and creates a calendar event with Live Stream Title and Live Stream URL populated by REC.VC.
When clicking on the Calendar icon users can choose between Google Calendar, Yahoo! Calendar and Outlook Calendar, in addition to the standard iCal Calendar format. The date and time of the event is by defaultÂ set to +24 hours, but this can easily be changed in the calendar application before sending out the calendar invitation.
The release included all REC.VC sites (my.rec.vc and any white label site)Â andÂ caused no downtime for users.
