Updating Imported Elvanto Events on Tithely Sites

  • Once an Elvanto Event is added to sites, changes made to the event in Elvanto will not update on Sites. Changes made to synced fields in Sites (synced fields will appear with a red dot when editing an event imported from Elvanto 🔴 ) will update the Elvanto Event. The same fields are marked with a red dot when importing the event from Elvanto.
  • The sync will only send 1 year's worth of Elvanto recurring events. We recommend setting a calendar reminder to create new recurring events in Elvanto at the start of each year. 
  • Edits made to recurring events must be done in Elvanto. Updates to Elvanto recurring events will not sync to Sites.
