How To Add An Event In A Forum

with thanks to @qfknit for “cleaning up” my quick & dirty instructions “elsewhere”

How to add an event to the Calendar:
Forums > General > Events
create as you would a new topic post
then click the calendar icon in the toolbox above the text box, upper left (options are: camera, link, poll, calendar)
follow prompts that appear below the text box:

  • Beginning Date to appear in calendar
  • Ending Date to appear in calendar
  • Hours or all-day event
  • Location information to appear on horizontal bar in calendar

NOTE: @qfknit found this works best if you are you are working with a full screen, not a split screen.
A split screen may make it difficult to see the prompt below the text box.
