Quick start guide
Before you can view events you must log in. If you need to access credentials please send an e-mail request to IT support.
It's easy to add an event to a calendar. Click on the Add/Edit link below the calendar, or click on the day you want to add the event to. This brings up the Event Edit screen for that day.
Any events which already exist for that day are displayed, as well as a form you can fill out to create a new event. HTML formatting is allowed in event and popup text, so you can change text fonts, sizes, and colour. You can specify Event Text using the following fields.
- The date of the event (if you clicked on a day, this defaults to that date)
- Popup text to be associated with the event
- Start Time and End Time
- Foreground and Background colours (read how to specify colours)
You can also specify that an event repeats. An event can repeat on every day, or every week, or every other week, or every third Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, etc. An event can also repeat in the "the third Thursday of every month" fashion. You can select the end date for the event, or let it repeat forever.
After creating a Repeating Event, you can edit or delete single instances of the series, or you can edit or delete all the events in the series at once.
Note: you have probably noticed there are multiple Create Event buttons on the screen (or Replace Event buttons, if you're editing an existing event.) They all serve the same function and are there simply to make it easier to submit your event without having to scroll around.
Editing, Copying, and Deleting Events
To Edit an event, select the Edit button that appears next to the event in question at the top of the screen for that day. Similarly, to Delete an event, select the appropriate Delete button. For repeating events, you can choose whether to edit or delete all instances of the event, or only the instance that occurs on the day you're looking at.
If you're Editing an event, you'll be presented with the same Event Edit Form used to create a new event. The fields will contain information for the event to be edited, and you can change any or all of them. When you're ready to save your changes, press the Replace Event button.
To Copy an existing event, press the Edit button, and then press the Copy Event button instead of the Replace Event button. Note that you can make changes before copying, effectively editing and copying an event in one step.
Please e-mail IT support if you need help with any of the above.
