Calendar events are created and edited from within the CMS workarea. Events are actual content items that go through workflow—they must be approved and published.
The links on this page will show you how to create an event for your site’s calendar, update an existing event, and help promote your event.
Open the CMS workarea, click on the Content tab, and navigate to your main folder (located under “Units” in the left-hand folder list).
Open the Page Layouts folder, and then open the Events subfolder. Within here is another folder, labeled with your department or office’s name. The folder icon will have a small calendar superimposed on it.
Click directly on this folder, and the calendar itself will appear in the right-hand window. Events are added to the calendar right here.
Add a title, location, time, and description of your event

Calendar events in the workarea appear in little blue boxes right on the calendar. All of the calendar events can also be seen by scrolling down under the calendar, where you will see a list of content (the events), listed alphabetically.
Tip: To see the newest content, look for the Date Modified column. The title of this column is a link. Click it once to sort by date from oldest. After sorted, click it again to reverse the sort, and the most recently edited content will be at
the top of the list.
The CMS work area calendar can be viewed just like the calendar on your Events page within the Web browser (when that page is looked at in Calendar view, not List view).
