MWR Rota leverages Trumba Connect's powerful publishing features to provide complete event details for hundreds of marines, navy and air force military and their family members, retirees and civilian employees. MWR Rota site visitors can browse the entire calendar of events or filter and sort by any combination of twenty event categories (Athletics, Theater, Childcare, Community Classes and more) to easily find specific events of interest. Trumba's keyword search provides another tool for quickly finding a specific event.

Trumba's custom fields provide MWR Rota the control and flexibility they wanted to set up their calendars according to their preferences. "We love that with Trumba we can customize fields and name them whatever we want," says Emine Nichols, Information Technology Specialist for MWR Rota, Spain.

Trumba's customizable event submission form makes it easy for MWR Rota to collect and publish events for their numerous calendars. "So many in our community enjoy our new event calendar, and our staff appreciates that they can easily add events," says Nichols. Trumba's featured events promotion tool allows MWR Rota to customize and highlight selected important events. "The featured event tool is very helpful and is another important feature for us," Nichols adds. "Sometimes we don't want to advertise all of the events on the calendar, for various reasons, and the program lets us choose the events we want to feature on our site's home page."

With Trumba's Event Actions feature MWR Rota's site visitors can also add events to their personal calendars, request email reminders, and subscribe to RSS feeds. "With Trumba I can do everything I need to do for managing a calendar," says Nichols. "For example, I was wondering if I could have a separate movie calendar and add movie trailers to the calendar, and it was possible. Trumba looks very professional and offers a lot. We are very happy that we work with Trumba."
