Inbox (button with your name on it)

  • This button opens your personal inbox, and displays the number of items (if any) awaiting action
  • The inbox contains
    • PUBLIC : Initial requests from the public to have you be the primary organizer of an event, if your calendar allows public submissions.
      • Denying these requests will prevent them from being entered into the system.
    • CROSSLIST: Requests from other calendar managers to cross-list an event they are organizing.
      • denying these requests will simply not add them to your calendar. They will not delete the event from the system.

Calendar Selector

  • If you have access to more than one calendar in the system, you can click on this button to choose between them.
  • You can use the search box to quickly find a specific calendar among a large list.

.

Users

  • Visible only to the Admin of a calendar.
  • This controls the list of managers for a calendar.
  • New managers are added by their NetID.
  • You may add a nickname to help you remember whose NetID that is.
  • Promoting a manager to Admin will demote you back to a manager, and you will lose access to this tool afterwards. So do so mindfully!

Settings

  • Allow Public Submissions checkbox: Adds your calendar to those available for public event submissions. Unchecking this will prevent others from submitting events with you as the organizer.
  • Allow Cross-Listing Invites (Promotional Invites): When checked, allows the managers of other calendars to send you an invitation to cross-promote an event they are organizing. Unckecked will remove this option.
  • Unchecking both will prevent any items from appearing in the inbox, and will therefore stop most notifications.

.

Logs

  • This contains a history of recent activity on a particular calendar. The most recent entries are listed in a table, and a button provides the option to download a full history of all actions associated with a calendar.
  • This is primarily a troubleshooting tool, but can also be used to track the efforts of multiple calendar managers.
