Jump to: navigation, search

To add an event, click the Add Event button located in the upper-right of the page.

You can also add an event by clicking on a date header if using the monthly calendar view or a date box if using the mini calendar view.

This will open the Add Event page which should look similar to the image below:


Short Description

A Short Description is required (otherwise referred to as the title).


Select a main category for the event. Optionally, there may be other categories to choose from. Categories are configured using Settings.


Select the group for the event. Groups are configured using Settings.


Enter the details of the event. This is generally a long description and can include HTML such as images, font colors and sizes, links and more (as long as these features are enabled in Settings).

Set Time

If the event has a specific time, it can be selected by clicking the Set Time button. A time of NA will result in no time information being saved.


Select how the event will occur. Once will only happen one time. Repeating will occur multiple times on a specific date or dates. Floating/Repeating can occur multiple time and are based on the week and day (example: third Thursday or first Monday).

Date Selection

Select the start date and end date for the event. This section will change the available options according to the Occurs selection.

Save Event

When finished entering the event data, click Save Event to commit the event to the database, or click Cancel to return to the Home page.

Add more events

If this option is checked, once the event has been saved, a new Add Event screen will be presented so that events can be continuously added. Uncheck this box before saving the last event or click the Cancel button to return to the Home page.
