Where to Place New Events
You can insert a new Event under an Events folder, which should be under an Events page item in your school or department content tree.
What Is Displayed
Events are displayed on the landing page under Events while they are current, then automatically move to the Past Events page after they have occurred. Therefore, you do not need to move the events; the date fields determine when an event has occurred. The Event Title, Event Abstract, and thumbnails are listed on landing page or Past Events views. Clicking on the event title takes you to the detail view for that event, where more information is available.
|Event Title||Shows on the abstract and detail view.|
|Keywords||Keyword searches from the Calendar of Events will match on these (in addition to the event title).|
|Event Location||Displayed on detail view|
|Event Abstract||Displayed on the Calendar list.|
|Event Detail||Displayed on the detail view.|
|Event Start Date |
Event End Date
|These dates determine whether an event displays on the landing page under Events or on the Past Events Page|
|Event Contact||Contact person for the event. Displays on detail view.|
|Event Website||Link to event website. Shows on detail view.|
|Event Link Text||Text for link to event website. Displays on detail view.|
|Event Photo||Photo used on detail view. If no thumbnail is set, this will be re-sized on the Calendar list.|
|Event Thumbnail||Thumbnail used on Calendar list|
|Event Price||Displayed on detail view.|
|Link Away||If checked, the detail view link for this event goes to the event website, rather than the detail view.|
|Hide Link||If checked, the event title is not a link on the Calendar list.|
If a single event spans multiple discrete times, you can add them as Event Occurrences under an Event. These times will be listed on the detail view.
