Event Date and Time
Select any of the three choices to...
- Specify a start and end time for the event
- Specify a start time but no end time for the event
- Make the event an all day event with no start or end time
Set up the Start Date and End Date - as well as the start and end time, depending on the option you selected above - for the event. This will display on the event's page on the website, and will affect how the event is displayed on the calendar page. This may vary depending on the template being used for the calendar.
With this option, you can have the event repeat in the calendar every week, month, or year so you do not have to worry about recreating the event multiple times.
Note: You would need to set the Event End Date for your event as more than one week, one month, or a year of the Event Start Date for the settings to work.
Does not repeat: The event will not repeat in the calendar
Annually: The event will repeat every year
Monthly: The event will repeat every month. You can choose which day the event will repeat on for each month.
Weekly: The event will repeat each week; or every two weeks, three weeks, or four weeks. You can choose which day(s) of the week the event will repeat on. The days range from Sunday - Saturday.
Status: Set the event to be published on the calendar, or set it as a draft if you still need to set up the information for it.
Group Sharing: Set the event to be shared with the other websites in your group, or set it to keep it on one website.
Once you are finished, you can click the Post This Event button. The event will save, and will display in your calendar page - unless you set your event as a draft.
