Add/edit events in calendar in Dashboard under Calendar

Each event needs event information.  You can choose if location information or category designation if needed.

Fields you must fill out include Title and open description field.  Featured image is used in monthly pop up or list of events.  Categories are important if offering the search function.

IMPORTANT: If you duplicate your event, the URL website address for the event will have “copy in it – such as https://civicdemo.editmy.site/events/every-3-days-copy2/.  This look unprofessional.  Make sure to edit the Permalink

 

Under the description field is the Excerpt field – NOT used for monthly grid, but is to be used for calendar list display option if you are trying to be brief, but get the viewer to click on the event for more information.

Event Details – go through each subfield.  You can set a field to be recurring, and even list dates for it to no NOT appear under “dates to exclude.”

Location section is used for calendars that have events in a number of locations.

 

 

Check the box if repeating, then decide type of repeat and you must choose an End Date or number of events.  MAKE SURE the radial is chosen.  Add an internal note for last date of repeated event.  This information is shown on the dashboard of all events and is very helpful.

NOTE:  Repeats > Advanced = allows you to choose the first, second, third, etc DAY of the week.  This is helpful for many types of meetings

 

Able to exclude a date would normally be part of the repeating set up.

LOCATION

Some calendars need location information.  We recommend using the latitude and longitude from https://www.latlong.net/ to get the correct values.
