The following is an overview of the Event Calendar's navigation. The calendar has two sets of navigational links, the Main Navigation is tabbed and will change depending on the tab you are visiting. The Top Navigation will not change as long as you are in the editing area of the Event Calendar.
There are five links in the Top Navigation:
Public Calendar - Links to the front end of the calendar that the public sees.
Main Menu - Links to the screen you see when you first log in that displays your events that are not on the public calendar and their approval status.
Help - Links to a pop-up window that will give tips for using the page you are on. The information in the pop-up window changes depending on which tab you are on in the Main Navigation.
Logout - Will log you out of the calendar and send you to the public calendar.
About - Version and copyright information about Active Data, the vendor we use for our calendar.
The Main Navigation has six tabs: Events, Workflow, Facilities, Categorization, Marketing and Reports.
Under the Events Tab, you may add new events or edit previously created events. When you select "Add" in the Events tab (image one)
, you will create an event from scratch following the steps in the Quick Submission Guide
. When you select "Modify/Cancel/Delete" you will see a list of events that your department has submitted (image two)
