Calendar Use

I have added more local (to me) events and Bank Holidays to the Calendar.

Re: Calendar Use

Ellie,

I have constructed a short manual in word and PDF. I'm not an administrator of the site, so its just what I have done with screen shots. I am more than happy to share this with anyone who may find it useful.

I can't see a way of attaching it in a PM, otherwise I would have sent it to you if you were interested in reviewing it for suitability ??? I notice you can attach documents to threads, but understandably the file size is limited (~19K for PDF) My PDF is around 280K because of the screen shots.

Anyone have any ideas? Happy to email. May be there's an official "how to " guide.

Regards

Graydon

Re: Calendar Use

Can't you just put it somewhere and provide a link? If you like, email it to me and I'll put it on my ISP webspace. I have sent you a pm with my direct email address

Hi Ellie

It's simple really, you can click on the calendar link



...and you will be taken to a calendar view of your choice (default = monthly), which you can change to weekly or even annually by clicking on the 'Monthly View' link as shown (NB: this changes to show your choice of view);



You are then able to add new events, by clicking on the 'Add New Event' drop down link, or the 'Add New Event' link on each day (in weekly view, and can be seen on the screenshot but not arrowed);



Simply choose the type of event you wish to add;

Single, All Day Event: no start or end time, all day event
Ranged Event: start and end date, start and end time
Recurring Event: An event that repeats itself daily, weekely, or monthly et al.

I will choose 'Ranged Event' for this example, and this is what I then get presented with;



Once the details of your event are entered into the respective fields, you will be taken to the events page which shows the details of the event you just created. Also, on this page, to the right hand side you will see a 'Request Reminder for this Event' link. Click on this if you wish to be notified via a reminder from 15 mins to several days prior to the event. When you request a reminder, the text changes to 'Delete Reminder for this Event', and you also see a mini alarm clock above the text - which is to show you that you have set a reminder for the event.



Now, when in any of the calendar views, everyone can see your new event. This screenshot is from the monthly view of today;


... simply click on the 'e-Group Calendar Lesson' link to be taken to the details of that event.

When entering events, it is obviously beneficial to include as much detail about the event as you can. This can also include url's, images and links in calendar items. The more information you show, the more interesting the calendar entry will be to those viewing it.

Finally, all events added can now be seen at the bottom of the Forum Index page. Go to the Forum Index by clicking here;



... and at the bottom of the page you are taken to, you should now see a list of the events coming up over the next 60 days, like this...



There's more functionality to the calendar that this brief explanation I have provided of course, but I'll let you all explore and have a play with this and have fun discovering it for yourselves.

Please do shout if anyone needs further help or support.

Re: Calendar Use

Mike,

Thanks for the offer. I went and did what you suggested earlier today and have just uploaded to my own web site - didnt suggest this as I thought it best a for a tutorial to be actually on this site.

John,

Thanks for this. I have put my PDF attempt on www.bizzapps.co.uk home page as a link. I'll leave it there for a short while if anyone wants to use that instead or together with the above.

Kind regards

Graydon
