Web - Adding an Event to a Campus-Wide Calendar

How do I add an event to a campus-wide calendar in Drupal?

You can easily add an event to the campus-wide calendar by creating a new page.

  1. First, click the “Content Section” dropdown menu and scroll down until you see “Calendars.” Beneath calendars in the list are more specific calendars, such as Academic Calendar, Alumni Events, Arts and Entertainment, etc. Choose the section the event best fits into.
  2. You can lay out the Event page just like any other page with rich text, videos, photos, etc.
  3. Before saving the event, make sure to click the “Calendar” tab in the left-hand menu. On this tab, check the box for “Show End Date” and enter the date and time when the event starts and the date and time when the event ends. 
  4. Save the draft and publish the page. The event will be added to the calendar specified in the first step.

If you require a more specific calendar for your section, contact Web Development at or 608.342.1444.

For a more in depth explanation of this process please take a look at the Layout Example or Video Tutorial provided on the Web Development page.
