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.
- Start by naming your source for the event.
Give your event source a name that suitably describes it.
- Enter contact person.
The contact person is named in the e-mail that is sent to the users invited to use the source.
- Invite users.
Add people by entering their e-mail and names or by selecting existing PLAYipp users.
- Set an e-mail schedule.
If you invite a user, this person will automatically receive an email according to the schedule you set here.
- 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.
