Using the Calendar of Events - User Guide

Accessing the Calendar Admin section is straightforward. 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 handy link in the upper-right corner that lets you switch between viewing past events or hiding them altogether. Additionally, there are links in the upper-left corner to filter events by status: Active, Pending, or Both. This is particularly useful if you've configured the MMS to allow members or the public to submit events for 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 enter the required information.

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

2. Details: Provide specific details about the event. For more information on the available fields, refer to the next section of the manual.

3. Attachments: The MMS allows you to attach documents to events in the calendar. This feature is handy for including printed 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, click on the "Delete" option next to the event you want to delete.

Controlling the Number of Events Displayed:

Within the MMS configuration, there's a feature called "Number of Days" in 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 several years in advance without overwhelming the page.
