The Event function collects information about events from users and displays it in a widget. The function can be used to create anything from a shared calendar to a daily lunch menu. Each event can contain a headline, body text, date and start time.


Publish an event

There are two different ways to publish an event. If you are a PLAYipp Manager user, you can navigate to Functions > Events and select your source. You can then write a post and publish.


People can also be invited to publish events without having to log in. The person receives an e-mail with a web link to a page where they can create events.

This e-mail can be arranged by a PLAYipp administrator to be automatically scheduled to be regularly sent to an event creator. It can be for example sent every other Monday at 10:00 or every Friday at 13:00.

Create an event source

To start using Events you have to first create a source. You can have different sources from different departments by involving different people. Navigate to Functions > Events > create new event function.


    1. Start by naming your source for the event.
      Give your event source a name that suitably describes it.
    2. Enter contact person.
      The contact person is named in the e-mail that is sent to the users invited to use the source.
    3. Invite users.
      Add people by entering their e-mail and names or by selecting existing PLAYipp users.
    4. Set an e-mail schedule.
      If you invite a user, this person will automatically receive an email according to the schedule you set here.
    5. The source is ready. The source is now set up and in use. The invited users will receive an e-mail with information that a source has been created and that they have been invited.
