Calendar of Events - Usage Guide

Accessing the Calendar Admin section is easy. Simply go to the Administrative Functions section in the main menu, and you'll find it there. In this section, admins have the ability to add, modify, and delete events as needed.

You'll notice a convenient link in the upper-right corner that allows you to switch between viewing past events or hiding them altogether. In the upper-left corner, there are additional links to filter events by status: Active, Pending, or Both. This is particularly useful if your MMS is configured to accept event submissions from members or the public, which require approval.

Adding an Event:

To add a new event, click on the "Add New Event" link. You'll be guided through a series of pages to input the necessary information.

1. Dates: Enter the date(s) of the event. If it's a recurring event (e.g., weekly or monthly), you can include each occurrence separately.

2. Details: Provide the event's specific details. You'll find more information about the available fields in the following section of the manual.

3. Attachments: The MMS allows you to attach documents to events in the calendar. This feature comes in handy for adding registration forms, brochures, or pictures.

Making Changes:

To modify an existing event, click on the "Change" option next to the event you wish to update. You'll be presented with the same series of pages described earlier, allowing you to make the necessary changes.

Deleting an Event:

If you need to remove an event entirely, click on the "Delete" option next to the event you want to delete.

Displaying Events:

In the MMS configuration, there's a setting called "Number of Days" within the Calendar of Events configuration. This setting determines how many days in advance events are displayed in the list format. It's a useful tool to manage the display of events on your website, allowing you to enter hundreds of events years in advance without overwhelming the page.

If you require further assistance or have any questions regarding the usage of the Calendar of Events, our help desk is ready to support you.
