Add a calendar event

Article summary

Activities with date settings (such as quizzes, assignments and seminar events) will automatically be populated into the calendar as course events. 

However, you can also manually add other types of events to the calendar, the type of events you can add depends on your access level. For example, Trainers are able to add Course or User events, but learners can only add User events. A user event is unique to that specific user (i.e. you), so you might want to use this to add in meetings or reminders for yourself. 

To add a calendar event, follow the steps below:

  1. In the Calendar block click the month to enter the calendar.
  2. Click the New event button.
  3. Enter the event type, title, description and date settings. Mandatory fields are marked with an asterisk (*). 
  4. Click Save changes

The event will now display in the calendar.
