Signing up for Events

About the Events Calendar

The Events Calendar is designed for internal events within your organization. For example, training classes or staff meetings. Any scheduled “standby” or “community event” shifts should be placed on the main schedule.

To locate the Events Calendar, navigate to ‚ÄúSchedule > Events Calendar”. Alternatively, you can click the “Upcoming Events” header on the dashboard after logging in.

Signing Up for an Event

  1. On the Events calendar, locate the event you wish to sign-up for.
  2. To view details for the event, click the event title.
  3. To sign-up for the event, click the “green circle” icon next to the event title (on the calendar).
  4. The screen will refresh and the icon next to the event title will turn red. You have now successfully signed up for the event.
  5. At this point, the member will receive an e-mail confirmation (assuming “Event Notifications” are activated within the member profile). Additionally, the individual who created the event will also receive an e-mail notification.

Important:

  • Events you sign-up for are in no way connected to any scheduled shifts. If you sign-up for an event, any currently scheduled shift for the same date/time will remain.
  • Events will not appear on the “My Schedule” screen.
  • Events will not appear in the “iCal feed“, on your personal calendar software (Outlook, Google Calendar, etc.).
  • If an event is updated or canceled, an automated e-mail is not sent to all registered attendees.

Removing Yourself From an Event

  1. On the Events Calendar, locate the event you wish to remove yourself from.
  2. Click the “red circle” icon next to the event title.
  3. The screen will refresh and the icon next to the event title will turn green. You have now successfully removed yourself from the event.
  4. At this point, the member will receive an e-mail confirmation (assuming “Event Notifications” are activated within the member profile). Additionally, the individual who created the event will also receive an e-mail notification.
