Marketing calendar for planning General Availability October 2018

Marketing calendar for planning

The marketing calendar control lets marketers visualize a variety of marketing activities that have a start and end date. Effectively, marketers can view many elements of a campaign (such as events) on the same calendar, providing an easy overview.

The calendar enables all stakeholders to view many diverse elements of a marketing campaign on a single calendar, allowing for faster decision making. It’s easy for events planners to view or create sessions straight from the calendar, while accounting for room and speaker availability, without leaving the page.

The marketing calendar provides a mobile-friendly responsive control that allows users to view and in some cases create items on the calendar without leaving the page. Most marketing entities that include a start and end date such as journeys and events can be shown. The calendar makes it easy to add entities with a click, or view sessions inside an event.
