Creating an event
Within the communication module
To create an event in the communication module, simply click on the plus icon to the left of the text input field and select the option "Event".
Within the calendar module
Within the calendar module, you can create an appointment via the blue plus button in the upper right corner or directly within the calendar, by left-clicking or right-clicking the concerning day. (Note: Tasks, on the other hand, can only be created by right-clicking.) Entries can be moved in the overview by drag and drop.

Settings of an event
To create a new event it is only necessary to enter a title and a period (start and end with date and time / all day). All other settings, such as agenda (= description), attendees* or location, can be filled in optionally. However, we recommend you fill in as many fields as possible, as this will make your work clearer and more efficient.
Note: The creator of the event automatically becomes an attendee.
Fill all fields to ensure highest clarity and efficiency
- Check availability before arranging an event.
- Store relevant information in a structured way and limited to the essentials.
- Who should be informed? Add participants of the event and, if necessary, subscribers.
- Create links to relevant content.
- Communicate the agenda and the goal of the event to the participants in advance.
If it is a regularly recurring event, a recurrence as well as the frequency can be set via the field "Recurring".
"Recurring" + Selection of the frequency
In the calendar, all individual events of the recurring event are entered according to their due date and marked with a recurring symbol.
Recurring events in the calendar module
A standard reminder as well as a standard period can be set in the account settings. If necessary, you can adjust these individually in the event. The bells symbol indicates an existing reminder.
If the date of the event changes, the settings for the options "Reminder" and "Recurring" are also adjusted to the new date.
Invite users to an event / remove users from an event:

Visualization and filtering in the calendar
Symbols and Colors
The calendar display of the event shows the period and the title, as well as a note for recurrences and / or an activated reminder. To distinguish events from tasks in the calendar, events are marked with a circle and a bright color. The color depends on the room color or the room group. Tasks are displayed with a check mark in a darker color, completed tasks are grayed out.
