Getting Started

Events Module is a calendar where the user can add all day events, set times for events, add descriptions of events, and provide URL links, document links, and can either be in a calendar, list, or week view on the web pages. (Google Calendar is a better option)

Google Calendars

  • Create a Google Acct. -  this should be done by your Social Admin after setting up a school account
  • Create a Calendar(s) / Invite others to edit calendar(s)
  • Editing events (individually and with an excel template)
  • Embed your calendar with DNN HTML module
