Facebook Changes…

Thursday, August 23rd, 2018

As of 1st of August 2018, Facebook have changed their policy regarding automatic posts / announcements from apps like GigaTools to people’s Facebook Pages & Profile.

This change in Facebook’s policy has effected thousands of Apps including ours.

As a result of these policy changes, automatic posts from GigaTools to Facebook Pages & Profiles are currently disabled.

We are examining the new Facebook policy and will determine if we can offer the same automatic posting of Gigs to people’s Facebook pages in the near future. thank you for your patience.

Develop Custom Gigs Listings

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Here are some tips for developers who need to build their own custom GigaTools widgets or gigs listings.

All Gigs can be read for any given User or Group with a dedicated URL that follows this format:

Available formats include: .xml .json .rss .ical

A User example:

Group example:

Our widget code is open source so please feel free to download it and use it as a base for your own custom Gigs listing.

the code can be found here:

And here is an example of the embed code:

<div><script type=”text/javascript” src=””></script><script type=”text/javascript”>

addGigaToolsWidget(new GigaToolsWidget({ client: ‘group’, id: ‘GigaTools’, widthType: 0, font: ‘Arial’, width: ‘550’,height: ‘500’,  backgroundColor: ‘rgba(255, 255, 255, 1)’, headTextColor: ‘#01b615’, bodyTextColor: ‘#666666’, borderColor: ‘#CCCCCC’, borderSize: ‘2’, borderRadius: ‘0’ }));

Improved Facebook Announcements

Monday, May 4th, 2015

As of 1st May 2015, Facebook implemented changes to their policy which relate to how Apps like GigaTools can post on your behalf to your Facebook profile and pages.

In the past, GigaTools could post a short message to your Facebook profile or pages regarding any Gigs you had that day, as well as a message announcing any new Gigs you had added to your schedule.

Now, instead of posting a message regarding a specific Gig, GigaTools will post a link. The link GigaTools posts will be either the link you added when you first created the Gig to your schedule or a link to the Gig on the public GigaTools Gigs Listing site.

The good news with this update is that if your Gigs have a flyer or artwork that you have uploaded to the GigaTools site, this image will be posted to Facebook (as shown below)


When announcing New Gigs, GigaTools will also post a link to your complete Gigs listing Page on the public GigaTools Gigs Listing site, rather than the short announcement you would have seen before May 1st.

To take advantage of these new features, please reconnect your GigaTools User or Group to a Facebook Profile.

Thank you.


Updated Soundcloud Gigs Listings

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

Soundcloud recently made a change to their website which alters the way URLS (web links) are displayed on their site so we have updated the GigaTools Gigs listings on Soundcloud profiles to fit in with this change. Now, your Soundcloud Gigs listings will only include a link to your complete GigaTools Gigs listing page instead of linking each of your Gigs to any websites you may have linked them to.

GigaTools users do not need to change their profiles at all and it is safe to continue connecting your GigaTools Gigs to your Soundcloud profile.

Here is what the new Gigs listing looks like
