Managing Calendar Events

Note: If you belong to a group within your course, you can manage Calendar events for your group.

Editing Calendar Events

There are a variety of details you can add to your event from the Create Event page. You can add these details while creating an event for the first time, or when you edit it.

Access Editing Options

Do one of the following:

  • In the DayWeek, or Month view, select the event in the calendar content area, then click Edit.
  • In the Agenda view, click the context menu for the event name and select  Edit Event.
  • In the List view, click the right-facing arrow. Click the context menu for the event name and select  Edit Event.

Setting Due Dates for Course Content

If an availability event is not showing in the Calendar, this indicates that you must set its due dates:

  1. Click Set Due Dates in the calendar content area.
  2. Browse the modules of your course and select any module or topic. Click Add.
  3. In Set Due Dates, enter a Description of the event. Enter a Start or Due Date, or both.

Note: You cannot select a module or topic that already has a start date or due date. To edit these events, search for them in the Calendar.

Note: The availability event displays on the due date unless the object only has a start date - in that case, the event displays on the start date. The full availability range always displays in the event details.
