    NEW - Add Google+ Events to Google+ Local Pages

    Hey all,

    I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

    I just wanted to pop into this thread and thank everyone for sharing this information. Also, I wanted to get everyone's feedback on this - being it was the holidays I wasn't able to keep as close of an eye on things.

    There was a feature that we have seen starting last week that allows for Google+ events to be created from the Local page. Please reference the attached image below:

    Name:  create-event.png
Views: 296
Size:  408.8 KB

    Once this button is clicked it will prompt the screen below to appear:

    Name:  create-event2.jpg
Views: 186
Size:  39.6 KB

    On this screen you can create an invitation and invite anyone within your group of circles. Upon completion it will seamlessly create a new page under the events tab in your profile.

    The guests will then receive the notification (as shown below) and be directed to the event page.

    Name:  create-event3.jpg
Views: 130
Size:  8.0 KB

    I think it's a neat feature but still believe there are much larger issues Google could be working on. Again, I apologize if this is old news.

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Thanks for the heads up and screen shots Matt. You posted this in an older thread about a code freeze and I thought it deserved it's own thread, so just split it out.

    Thanks again eagle eye, for always keeping us updated every time you spot something new out in the wild!

    Re: NEW - Add Google+ Events to Google+ Local Pages

    Oh, so THIS is what the code freeze was about? Maybe? I think I saw an old thread get updated and thought there was yet another one coming. With Google, who knows.

    Matt, thank you so much for the great visuals.
