Updates

Keep track with changes made on AddEvent.
It's sort of a change log and an information board to keep you in the loop.

Update (Tuesday, October 20, 2015)

Added

Some marketing automation systems and email campaign systems add parameters to URLs which sometimes makes them difficult to identify. We added support for those extra parameters when linking to "One-time Events".

Fixed

Fixed a timezone picker issue in the "One-time Events" forms.

Update (Monday, October 19, 2015)

Information

We are experiencing a capacity issue with our tracking service. The issue is a result of the recent DNS changes. The issue will be fixed very soon.

Fixed

The capacity issue with our tracking service has been resolved.

Added

We did not publish our "time zones file" located at addevent.com/zones. Apparently some of our users are linking to it directly in their code / external resources. We strongly advice our users to download those sort of files. The "time zones file" has been published and is online again.

Fixed

We fixed a date / time conversion issue on the landing page used by "One-time Events" and the "Direct URL Method".

Update (Sunday, October 18, 2015)

Information

Today (Sunday) it´s big moving day for AddThisEvent.

We are changing our name to AddEvent and will be moving our new code base to AddEvent.com.

The global DNS records are being updated during the next 24 hours. Strange things may happen. We´ll keep a close look with everything.

Update (Thursday, October 8, 2015)

Information

Today we experienced a small server downtime. This was the second downtime in three years of running our service.

Server downtime is not acceptable to us and we are working hard on building a setup where downtime will never happen.

Update (Sunday, October 4, 2015)

Information

For the past couple of months we have been working hard on converting our existing platform into a scale-able and more robust infrastructure.

Next week (week 41), we will carefully be testing our new code and in the end of the week, we will launch the new code on the new infrastructure.

During week 41 we will be exporting our database into the new infrastructure. While doing this some sections of AddThisEvent.com will be unavailable for a short period of time.

Update (Monday, September 7, 2015)

Changed

Google recently added a new address (URL) to their calendar service. According to Google the "old" address will be supported for an unknown period of time. At some point of time the old address will be deprecated.

When users add an event to their Google Calendar, users will now be directed to the new address.

Update (Thursday, August 20, 2015)

Added

On a daily basis a few of our users get their subscription renewals declined by their financial institutions / credit card companies. It can be due to many reasons. One reason could be an unintentional hold on their account for certain transaction types. It unfortunately results in their account being degraded to a free account until the payment is processed successfully.

We have set up a service that will notify our users if their credit card was declined. An information service so they are able to change credit card if necessary.

Update (Tuesday, August 4, 2015)

Fixed

A lot of our users are using e-mail management systems to handle their e-mail campaigns. E-mail management systems collects statistics by converting and redirecting links to their own system, then they forward the links to the right destination.

Some e-mail management systems do not clean up their links when forwarding to the right destination. That resulted in us not being able to handle some events in the "One-time Events" section correctly.

The issue has been solved by taking "malformed" URL´s into account.

Update (Monday, July 20, 2015)

Added

In AddThisEvent we are using timezone´s to handle date and time correctly across borders and daylight savings time.

Selecting the correct timezone can be a little confusing though. That is why we have built a timezone lookup functionality.

Our timezone lookup functionality is located everywhere you can select your timezone. You can locate the timezone by entering e.g. address, capital or country of the event.

Update (Tuesday, July 7, 2015)

Fixed

In the "Advanced settings" for the "Add to Calendar" button and the "Subscribe to Calendar" button you are able to control the sort order in the drop down menu.

A user was using spaces in the list. Apparently we did not trim the values for spaces resulting in the items not being picked up in our values comparison. The issue has been fixed.

The javascript resources "1.5.8.min.js", "1.6.0.min.js", "atemay.js" and "ate-latest.min.js" have been updated.
