How to add a new event

Once all of your building blocks are in place (Equipment, Room Setups, People, Permissions, Properties), you are now ready to add an event to your calendar.

  1. From either the calendar view or the settings view, click the + New Event button.
  2. Begin to fill in the information for your event. In the beginning, you may go back in and edit the event several times after you save it until you know it is set up and displayed on the calendar exactly as you would like.

    • To make the event a recurring event:
      • Fill out the event description and date and time for only one day.

      • Then add the recurring information below.

    • You may set the event to private until you are ready to make it public. Do this under Settings → Properties. Later, edit the event and change it to the correct Property for this event. In this example, it will be youth.

  3. Using the building blocks you added under Settings, add a contact person and/or people who will help with the event. Also, select the rooms you would like to reserve for your event.
    • Note: If you only want one room within a larger room, simply choose the single room (or even a couple of rooms). For example, you may select Sanctuary and Chapel below.
    • If your room does not display as one you can choose from (it's grey and doesn't let you select it), you may want to create a view for that room and see if the room isn't being used in another scheduled event, even for a few days within your time span.

    • Properties: To select more than one property, depress the CTRL key and select each one.
