Managing events

Last Updated: Dec 22, 2014 10:36AM PST
  1. From the LiveWhale interface, click the “Events” tab. 
  2. There are two views from which events can be managed; the month view and the list view.

Month View

  1. The month view displays events in your group in a familiar grid display. 
  2. From this display, you can navigate month to month by clicking the previous and next month titles beside the calendar.
  3. To view events in list view for any date, click the numeric date for the desired day.
  4. Events can be clicked to proceed to the edit screen.

List View

  1. A checkbox allows you to select multiple events and perform bulk actions from the “With checked items…” drop-down menu. Available actions include: delete, remove tags, add star, remove star, share, unshare, duplicate, set status, add tag. 

  2. The Star. Click on the star to flag the event as important. These items can optionally be highlighted on your web page, or you may choose to only display starred events with your widget.

  3. Status menu. To change the status of events, select the appropriate status here. “Live” will publish the event immediately, “Hidden” will hide the item from your web site until you are ready to publish it.
  4. Event title. Click the title to edit the event.
  5. If the event is tagged, a list of these tags will appear beside it. Clicking a tag will tell the events manager to only show events with that tag.
  6. Beneath the event is the event date.
  7. Use the preview link to preview the item as it will appear on the public web site.
  8. When certain elements are modified (such as event status), a message saying “Your changes to this page have not been saved” will be displayed. Click the “Save These Changes” button to save the changes you have made.

  9. If an event is a link to an external page, it will display a small link icon before the title. If the link appears to be broken, the link will display broken and highlighted in red.
  10. If the event repeats, it will display a small repeating event icon before the title.
  11. To add a new event, click the “Add a New Event” link.
  12. Filter Events: A show “By date”, "By tag", etc.. drop-down menu is available to display events filtered by your selected criteria
