Create an event

Add an event

  1. Go to your calendar page and click Create event. Alternatively, hover over the event date and click the + button.

    Create event button

  2. Enter the Title of the event.
  3. In the Notes box, enter a brief summary of the event.
  4. Optionally, use the Detail section to provide a longer description:

    • Use a pre-existing web page for this item's detail – if you already have a page describing the event (say, an agenda with speaker biographies), choose this option and enter the web address in the URL box. For example:
    • Create the detail for this item now – to enter a longer description now, select this option and type the description in the Detail box.
  5. Enter the name of the event venue (e.g. room number for University on-campus events) in the Location box.
  6. Specify the date, and start and end times. For events that do not have a specific start or end time and span a full day, or cross several days (such as a two-day conference), select All-day event.
  7. To set this event to recur from the Start date onwards, choose an option from the Repeats menu: daily, every weekday (Monday to Friday), weekly, monthly or annually. Also, set the Until date to specify when the recurring event stops.

    By default, repeating events are a linked series; changes to the event apply to all events in the series. If necessary, you can unlink a series to edit individual events – for example, to change the guest speaker name or topic at a monthly research seminar.

    Note: once you unlink events from a series it's not possible to re-link them.

  8. Optionally, select the appropriate tags to categorise your event.
  9. Select Create item.

    Note: the date format must be dd/mm/yyyy – for example, for 3 August 2018 enter 03/08/2018
  3. Click Create event or press Enter/Return. The event is now published on the calendar. To make any changes or add more detail, edit the event.
