Event Notifiers are created within Chronicle Bot to link Google Calendars and Discord Channels.
One or more calendar may be selected from which Chronicle Bot will pull events.
To add a new calendar connection, locate the Calendar Connection section. On the left you can select the green "Connect a Calendar" button which will open the calendar selection pop-up. From here you can pick your calendar type.
If you wish to connect additional calendars click the green "Add" button and repeat the steps.
When picking the Google Calendar connection type you will have the option of selecting a Google Account and a calendar, or to link a new Google Account.
Once a Google Account is selected, a new dropdown will appear from which you can select your desired calendar. It is a good idea to make a new calendar just for the events you want sent to Discord.
Selecting the Discord Server and Channel
Next, on the right side of the screen select the Discord server and channel from the dropdown boxes. If your server is not listed make sure the bot has been added and you have the Manage Server permission.
Each Event Notifier can have only one Discord server and channel selected. This is the server and channel which Chronicle Bot will send the events, reminders, and summaries.
When selecting an announcement channel an additional Auto Publish option will appear. Selecting this will cause Chronicle Bot to automatically publish all reminders and summaries sent to this channel. Due to rate limits on Discord announcement channels publishing and edits to these messages may be delayed.
Events retrieved from connected calendars can also be filtered, allowing you to include or remove events from being processed based on their titles or tags. Event filters can also help split events from the same calendar into different Discord channels.
The Event Filters section can be found in a dropdown just below the Calendar Connections of your Notifier. When adding a filter, you can select to Include or Remove events whose Titles or Tags contain the Search Term you specify.
An additional dropdown will appear when adding more than one filter allowing you to select how the filters are combined. The options are Match All Filters (Logical AND) and Match Any Filter (Logical OR).
Event Filters will affect which events sync to Discord, are included in event summary messages, and which reminders appear in your Discord channel.
Naming a Notifier
When creating a notifier, you can optionally enter a name to identify the notifier. For those users who have a large number of notifiers, this can help with organization and identification.
