Creating Events

We encourage all calendar contributors to familiarize themselves with each of the event creation fields detailed below as well as their accompanying best practices. Doing so will make it easier for calendar users to find events.

Getting Started

To create a new event:

Sign in: Go to the UB Events Calendar and scroll to the footer. Click “Sign In” and provide your UBITName and password.

Create an event: Once you sign in, mouse over the left function panel and it will open. Click “Create an Event.”

Save and publish: If you have permission to publish your own events, you will see an “Approve” or “Publish” button at the bottom of the event creation screen. If you do not have publishing permissions, click “Save” and let your authorized approver know you have an event waiting to be published.

It is critical to work with your calendar team lead or senior communicator to ensure events support the UB brand, include all required settings and keywords, are coded to appear on the appropriate website feeds, and are easy for your users to find.

Adding Event Details

Below are instructions for completing the fields in a new event. They are presented in the order in which they appear on the event creation screen.
