Calendar Event Setup - create a group and add dates

This guide has been created for system administrators.

Specific role permissions may be required, including: Global Rota Setup.


The calendar events feature allows for specific date events, for example training days or conferences, to be added as a marker in users' calendars. The calendar events appear as a small triangular marker in the calendar and do not affect the ability for a user to request an absence on the given day.

Step by step guide: 

  • Navigate to Admin tools > Admin panel.
  • Go to Global > Calendar event Setup.
  • Click the +Add new button.
  • Provide a name for the event type and assign a calendar display colour.
  • Click the save button.
  • Enter a date and, optionally, a name for the first occurrence of the event type.
  • Set whether the event is full day, part day or a custom time period.
  • click the save button or the save and add another button if adding further event occurrences.
