To add a new Event to your calendar, click the Add Event button on the left menu
The Event Editor will be displayed:
Explanation of Fields
The Event title. You can enter custom HTML directly in this field if you wish
This rich-text editor allows you to enter text, add images, and perform other formatting operations (bold text, create bulleted lists, add links, etc).
If all your events share common information, localendar supports entering text that will be automatically added to each event's description.
You can directly enter a 6 character HTML color code in this box (samples), or select from a palette of predefined colors by clicking the color wheel icon:
Note: If you don't choose a background color for an Event, localendar will default to either Yellow (for Public Events) or Blue (for Private Events)
If your event is taking place at a specific address or location, you may enter it in this box. localendar will attempt to give your visitors a Google Map to the location you supply, so please try and be as accurate as possible. It's OK to enter a location that is not an address (for example, "School Gym" or "Church Hall") but obviously no map will be possible.
If all of your events take place at a common location, localendar supports entering a default for this field.
The Month, Day, and Year when your event occurs (or first occurs, if this is a repeating event). You can click the small calendar icon to the right to make selecting a date and time easier.
The time of day that your event starts. You enter the duration of the event in this section also. If this is an All Day event (no Start or End time), select the radio button for All Day Event
Tip: If you want an event to show a Start time, but no End time, just select a Duration of 0 hours and 0 minutes.
Private events are visible only by you, when you sign on to localendar. No one else can see them, and they do not appear on your published calendar.
Only public events are visible on your "published" calendar
You can configure your localendar to default new events to be either Public or Private.
Publish as Local Event
If your Public Event is open to anyone, check this box. This will add your event to the national localendar database. Anyone who does a search for your area will find out about your event.
Make sure to provide enough information (directions, cost, etc) in your description so that people can find your event! "By the big tree" won't help someone unfamiliar with your area.
Public Events are subject to periodic review by the localendar staff. "John's Birthday" or "Doctor's Appointment" are not local events and will be excluded from local searches.
Please refer to Setting up Reminders
When you have finished entering information, you can click the Save button on the Event Editor. If you have more events to add, clicking Save and Add Another will return you to a fresh Editor screen.
If you have several events to enter that are very similar, you can save the event, open it for editing, and then make your changes and save it as a copy.
