Quick Submission Guide

The following is a short step-by-step guide to submitting an event to the calendar. Most events submitted will only need to follow these steps, but if you need more in-depth information about a certain topic, please see the Advanced Calendar Editing. Click on an image to enlarge it.

1. Log In

Use your calendar account to log in to the calendar. Your calendar log in is not the same as your FlashLine ID. If you do not remember your calendar log in information, you can contact the UCM Webteam.

2. Select "Add"

When you log in, you will see the events that you have entered that are waiting for approval. Go to the menu at the top right and choose "Add" under the Event tab.

4. Entering an Event: Step Two

You may add an image or attachment to your event, but it is optional. Images must be under 80k and 350 pixels wide or less. Attachments must be under 1 MB. If you need help resizing an image or document, contact the UCM webteam and they will assist you.

5. Entering an Event: Step Three (Entering Time)

You must add a time and location in Step Three. Under Event Dates(s), select the day of your event by either entering it into the fields on the calendar or using the calendar pop-up icon (image one). Under Event Time(s), enter a Start and End time (image two). If your event ends after midnight, just leave the end time blank. Select "Generate Schedule" (image three).

6. Entering an Event: Step Three (Entering Location)

Once you hit "Generate Schedule", the Location selector will appear (image one). The calendar will not force you to select a location, but your event will be rejected if there is not one attached. Find your campus and use the (+) icons by the campus and building to find the room your event is located in. Check the box by the room and select "Save".

If your event is off-campus, select both "Off Campus" and your campus so that the event will show up in your campus' RSS feeds. You can place the address of the off-campus location in the Event Description field. Confirm that your location has been saved and then select "Next" (image two).
