Adding, editing, or deleting Schedule items

Adding items

To create a new item, from within the Schedule tool:

  1. While viewing your calendar, click Add.

  2. Enter the required information for title, date, and start time. Additionally, you can specify a duration or end time.

  3. Under "Message", use the WYSIWYG editor to create and format the body of your item. (For more, see The WYSIWYG editor.)

    Note: Pasting text from Microsoft Word directly into the WYSIWYG editor may result in garbled output, even if the text appears correct in the editor. Instead, to insert formatted text from a Word document, click the Paste from Word icon, and paste using Ctrl-v or Command-v.

    Some users have reported problems using Paste from Word in Internet Explorer 9; for best results, use a supported browser. See Which browser should I use?

  4. To display the event to all members of the site, check Display to site. To display the event only to members of a certain group, check Display to selected groups, and then use the checkboxes to choose which groups or sections can view the item.

    Note: If you don't see the Display to selected groups option, no groups or sections are associated with your site; see Managing groups.

  5. If your event will take place more than once, you can set the frequency by clicking Frequency. Then:

    1. Next to "Event Frequency", use the drop-down list to select daily, Mon/Wed/Friday, Tuesday/Thursday, weekly, monthly, or yearly.
    2. Next to "Every:", use the drop-down list to select a value between 1 and 31.
    3. Under "Ends:", use the radio buttons to select when you want your event to stop recurring.
    4. Click Save Frequency.

    Note: If you do not choose a frequency, your activity will occur once.

  6. Next to "Event Type", use the drop-down list to choose an appropriate classification for your event.

  7. Next to "Event Location", type a location for your event into the text box.

  8. Under "Attachments", you can attach a file from your local computer or from Resources, or specify the URL for a file on the web. For instructions, see Options for adding attachments.

  9. To save your event and post it to the schedule, click Save Event. To cancel, click Cancel.
