Enter your event details

Have your event information handy and begin entering the details of your event. Start by entering the event date and time details.

Enter the location. 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.

Use the Summary 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.

Use Event description to add any other event details, or to link to another site for event information.

The Related Content tool can be used to place a link to other events, information, external content or unique websites on your event page that people who are interested in your event may also like to see.

Hover over the type of item you wish to link, e.g., 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. In most cases, this field is typically left empty.   

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

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

Enter Contact Information.

If you are only using LiveWhale, you can ignore Register Link. If you are coming from Eventbrite, this is where you add the Eventbrite link. Filling in this field will re-direct users to Eventbrite when they click “Reserve Ticket.”

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). 

Note: Events will read as “Ticketed” if registration is required, even if the event is free. Events will read as “Free” if registration is not required, for example if it is a day of note and therefore not something someone needs to sign up for.
