Basic event creation

Timezones

You may also notice in the bottom right, you can select a timezone. This is handy if you have an event going on in another part of the world, and you are not currently in that location. You can change this so it shows correctly to the correct people.

Repeating Events

You will see you can select "This event repeats" in the checkbox above. This will show you options to repeat an event. As you can see in the image below, this can be quite powerful and you can create these in many different ways.

Event Locations

You can optionally add the location of the event and an album which shows images of the event. When adding the location it will show a handy map of the location in which the event is located. Set venues may also be set up within your ACP if you have specific locations which are used on a repeated basis

You can also allow people to RSVP the event to say whether or not they are attending.

Adding a location will show a map to the event location. Note you must ensure you enable mapping for this functionality

Maps will be shown of the location if mapping is enabled

Similar Events

If an event has been done in the past, you can save time by selecting to create a similar event from an old event. Within each calendar event, you will see a button to create a similar event. This will pre-populate the details in event creation, with those same details.
