Creating an Upcoming Event

Currently only company vendors have the ability to adjust the upcoming events calendar.

To create an upcoming event, first navigate to the calendar, which can be found here.

On the right side, click Add New Event

There are three types of event that can be added to a calendar:

  • Single, All Day Event - an event that takes place for the whole of a day.
  • Ranged Event - events that have a defined start time and end time, not necessarily both on the same day.
  • Recurring Event - repeat over a set period of time based on certain criteria. Examples would be an event that occurs on the first Monday of every month and an event that occurs every Monday and Wednesday.

Just choose the appropriate option for the event you are adding.

Fill in the required information, then save the event. It will now appear on the Upcoming Events Calendar.

Note: All events uploaded will show on the main site upcoming events widget. Events uploaded by specific vendors will also show up on their respective landing pages (i.e. an event uploaded by a designated Mentor employee will show up on the Mentor landing page as well as the main site).

Note: If you're uploading an event that is not sponsored by your company (i.e. Mentor employees will be attending an event sponsored by another company) then please include "Mentor @ *EVENT*" or "Mentor at *EVENT*" at the beginning of the title to avoid confusion on the calendar. The reason for this is that other companies will be uploading the same event on their calendars and it would look confusing to have the same event posted multiple times on the calendar.
