I'm trying to create an event for a year out - January 2022, as I have always done, but when I start to create the event and then chose the dates for the event, I am only provided with 2021 dates. Has something changed?
Thank you for reaching out to the Community! Are you able to change the "End date" to 2022 first?
No I can't change the end date either. Please see image below:
Matter of fact, I'm trying to create an event for January and January isn't even in the drop 'up' menu. Please see image below.
I meant to include that I even tried to just forward through the dates using the forward/backward arrows, and it stops at December 2021. You can see in the image below it just stops at Dec. 2021 with no forward black button to the right, but I do have one on the left to back track to previous months.
Thank you for that information! It does look like we don't have the option to change the date past 2021 at the moment and I do apologize for the inconvenience. I will submit your feedback on this.
Hello @KimM048 ,
After doing some further digging, it looks like this was done purposely since the engineers are developing a new Events tool. The limitation was added to make sure the transition between the two systems won't cause too many issues - especially for events scheduled several months down the line.
Your account is already set up to receive any engineer notifications, if and when they have any updates regarding this situation and the release of the new Events tool.
Thanks for clarifying William. Do you have a possible timeline as to when the new tools will be ready? I have almost everything ready to go to create our event for January 2022, except for the ability to use the correct date. Still can't choose a 2022 date, which is most likely due to the new tool roll out, but I was wondering if there might be a timeline for that. Thanks.
At this time we don't have a hard ETA from the devs. If it ends up being delayed, we'll make sure to respond here, and they'll likely extend the old events tool to continue into 2022 to some extent.
I was updating our site trying once again to chose a 2022 date and still can't on the pages mentioned/shown above in my previous post. But today, I was able to chose a 2022 date when I was creating an "event". Please see the screen shot below. Any timeline on when I will be able to choose 2022 dates on "Pages"? I have three events created but cannot create links for them on our website because I can't choose 2022.
We still do not have an estimated release date for our new Event tool. We are currently limiting an event's dates to no later than December 31st, 2021 to help ensure an easy transition to our latest and greatest Events tool. This will not change unless, worst case scenario, the release gets pushed out to next year. Our developers are hard at work, and I am hoping this new tool will be released soon. We will keep you updated!
The screenshot you provided seems to be of your WordPress account, and I am unsure what you mean by Any timeline on when I will be able to choose 2022 dates on "Pages"? Can you please provide more information?
I am sorry. I realized in retrospect that the screen shot I posted here is from our Word Press account. I returned today to take it down but I see you already responded. Sometimes the pages I update look so similar on our Constant Contact account and Wordpress account and since the link from one gets inserted on the other, it gets confusing at times. I'll just keep checking back to see when the 2022 update occurs. Thank you!
