The Group calendar module is used to keep track of a group's activities. You can create new events for the group directly in the calendar and set the owner and attendee for the event. You can also drag tasks from the Group tasks module into the calendar. Tasks and events can be separated by colours.
At the top left are arrow buttons for navigating the calendar. Click the Today’s date button to get to today's date.
On the right, you can select how the calendar is displayed. Choose between Month, Week, Day and List.
The man icon shown in connection with the event or task indicates that you are either the owner or participant of the activity.
The View button in the upper-right corner of the calendar gives you the option to choose what to display.
Click on a day in the calendar to add a new event. Click on the time at which the event will begin, in the calendar if the week or day view is selected. Fill in the event name and click "Enter" to immediately add the event to the calendar.
Click on "Details" to fill in additional information about the event. A box opens with settings for the event.
Click on the event in the calendar to see a summary, delete or modify.
By default, group administrators and owners of an event/task are the only ones who can modify, delete, move, or extend the activity. For all group members to be able to edit all activities, the "Manage group activities" permission is assigned to the role that is designated for group members on the website (default is the "Group member" role).
Position the mouse pointer over the event you want to move. When a hand appears, it can be dragged to the new time in the calendar.
To extend the event, place the cursor in the left or bottom of the event, depending on which view is displayed. A double-headed arrow appears, and you can drag the event and drop at the new end time.
Click the event you want to delete from the calendar. Then click the Delete button to delete the event.
A box appears asking if you want to delete the event. A
deleted event cannot be recreated and will be deleted for
all group members.
Click the task you want to delete from the calendar. Then click the Delete button to delete the task.
A box appears asking if you also want to delete the task from the Task list. A task that is also deleted from the task list cannot be recreated and will be deleted for all group members.
The "No, save in task list" option means that the task is removed from the calendar and the time is removed from the task in the task list.
This module requires the Social Collaboration license.
