Understanding Locations and Calendar events

The Locations tool integrates with Calendar so you can add locations to events you create in the calendar. The Create Event page includes a field to select a location from a drop-down list.

Add a location to a Calendar event

  1. Access the Calendar tool.
  2. Click Create Event.
  3. Enter the details of the event.
  4. Under Location do one of the following:
    • Select a location listed in the drop-down list. All active locations from the Locations tool are available to associate with the event.
    • Select the Custom option from the drop-down list. Enter the name of the location for your event in the field.
    • If a drop-down list is not available, enter the name of the location for your event.

Note  Locations must be active to add them to events and create seating charts. You can activate locations during event creation if you have the required permissions using the Manage Locations link. If no active locations exist, then the custom bar appears instead.
