Enter your event details

Have your event information handy and begin entering the details of your event (note: data in left column is event specific; data in right column aids in searching). At the top of the left column, select:

Input event Date and time details.

Enter Location and check Plot this event on a map. If the location is already saved, a map will automatically appear. If not, enter the address and a map will appear.

On the right-hand column, you may adjust your event status to ‘Live’ or ‘Hidden’ by toggling the Green Button to Red. Note: always leave the event as ‘not archived’ or it will not show on the calendar even if it is ‘green’ or Live.

Select your Event type, Location and Audience. Multiple selection is possible.

The tagging function is not mandatory. You can use this if you want to use tags as a sort function in the LiveWhale Calendar component on your AEM website.

Enter your Event description using the Rich Text Editor provided. 

Use this section to provide a concise summary of your SFU event and its main purpose. Appeal to the reader by telling them what they'll get out of attending.

Feel free to use the header/sub-headers template as a guide for how you might organize your information.

To place a link to other events, information, or unique websites on your event page, use the Related Content tool. Hover over the type of item you wish to link, eg another event (searches for events in EventBrite), file (pop-up appears to add), or web address (provides link title and URL), and follow the prompts provided.

You have the option of entering information under Sponoring group, if you are posting an event for another group.

For example, if you are the (organizer) Department of History and you put Society of Archeology as the sponsor, the event will show up on the Calendar as being hosted by Society of Archeology.

Enter Contact Information.

If you are using only Livewhale, you can ignore Register Link. If you are coming from Eventbrite or SFU Websurvey, this is where you add the event link.

Select Event Cost. If you are coming from EventBrite, this is where you set your event cost. Whatever you select will be shown on the calendar image (see examples below). If you do nothing, the default is set to place nothing on the image.
