The Event module allows you to schedule an event, invite guests and keep track of who is attending. The Event module works collaboratively with the Calendar module to display events by day, week or month.
To add a new event click on the 'Set up a new event' button. Alternatively, if you have previously created an event you can click on the [update] link in the top right-hand corner of the current event or use the drop-down option to 'choose a previously created event to display'. Click on the arrow to open the drop-down and choose a template of a previous event. You can then update the new details for your event, such as the new date.
When you either create a new event or select to update a previous event you will see the Event Settings lightbox. There are four required fields (indicated by a red asterisk) and the other fields are optional.
You can choose to assign a category from the default category types: Party, Meeting, Outing and Lunch or create your own category by choosing [new category] from the 'Event category' drop-down, then entering the name in the 'New category name' field.
Click the 'Save' button to see your event on the page. To update any details you can click on the [update] link in the top right corner. If you wish to delete the event click the [delete] button. This will completely remove the event from your event history.
Event title - add a title which will overwrite the title field specified in the module title.
Reset Module - to clear the event from the module you choose the 'Reset' button. Resetting the module removes the current event from displaying but previous events you have created are not deleted.
Categories - you can delete categories you do not want to appear in the 'Event category' drop-down in the Event Settings lightbox. You can delete categories that have events associated with them and those events will then revert to not having a category.
Add a new category - type in the name of a new category to add to your Categories list.
An event can be any real life or virtual gathering you wish to invite people to attend. Once you create the event, you will be able to invite attendees by clicking the Invite Attendees button. Attendees can be members of your network or external people.
Event Details - Choose event name, type (e.g. party, meeting, dinner) and name the host of the event. Provide details the location of the event, the time and date, and add a description (optional).
Attendees - once you create an event you can view the attendees list and the status of the invitations, send more invitations and print the attendees list.
Display settings - Choose to display the event title in the module header (otherwise the default title is My Event). Choose if you wish to display a list of all the invited people, or only those who replied in a certain way. Choose the number of attendees to display in the module (there will be a 'Next' button to view the rest of the attendees), the order in which to display the attendees, and the size of the profile photo of each attendee.
