In this tutorial you will learn how to create an event.
All about events
Here are some examples of what events look like:
Events can be displayed in several ways:
Create an Event
a. Go to the dashboard by clicking on the "Content Dashboard" link at the top left of the page.
b. Click on the Add New Event button.
Step 2 - Fill out your event
a. Basics Tab
On the Basic tab you must fill out everything that has a red asterisk next to it (Event Name, Date, Location, Description)
Be sure to also select your Group Audience so it will be displayed within your site.
b. Images and Media Tab
At the top of the page across from the Basics tab is the Images and Media Tab.
Upload a thumnail image if you will be displaying your events in the right sidebar.
Image Requirements - Image must be at least 250px x 150px. If you load an image larger than this it will be resized automatically to these dimensions.

Add a new file - such as a pdf
c. Layout Tab
If you want items to appear in the right sidebar of your event turn them on or enter them in here.
Step 3 - Save to Publish
When you are done click the "Save" button at the top of the page to publish. Your Event is now live.
How do I display this event in my right sidebar?
Go to the page you want to place it on. Click on edit. Go to the layout tab. Go to the "Right Sidebar Content" link (and click on it if it isn't already opened). Select the checkbox for either "Upcoming Events Without Image" or "Upcoming Events With Image". Click the 'Save" button at the top of the page and your event should now appear.
How can I display this on my calendar?
Anytime you create an event and assign it to a "Group Audience" it will then display in that "Group Audience" calendar. To find your calendar you'll need to add the event to your right sidebar (see above). View the event sidebar and at the bottom of the event feed you'll see a "view calendar" link. This will lead you to your calendar.
