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.
