Calendar

Starting Fall 2016 semester, we will be offering a new WordPress solution for your department or program’s online calendar. Here’s a quick walkthrough of the “Add New” event page. Additional training videos are provided by the plugin’s developers.

  • Event Details:
    • Is the event all-day? Does it not have an end time? If neither, don’t check
    • Start & end date / time fields
    • Time zone: should be New York. If not, please set.
    • Repeat? If your event repeats weekly or monthly, check here and input repeating days/times
  • Event Location Details:

    • Enter address (if applicable)
    • Do not input coordinates
    • Show Map: optional
