Calendar Events

This guide covers managing Calendar Events in Sonoran CMS.

Community Events allow you to organize and plan events for your community to further engage with your members. Events allow you to plan the start & end time, title, description and an optional header image for each. Events also allow your members to RSVP to track who's attending your event.

Create an Event

To access the Community Calendar navigate to the top toolbar and select "Calendar".

To create an event click the "Create Event" button along the top to the right of the month selection. This will open the Event Creation dialog, and from there select the Calendar Category that you're wanting to create an event for.

Once you've got the create an event dialog you can now input all of the event information that you'd like to associate with this event, once the event is created it can be edited if any information is no longer correct.

Regarding RSVP Limit

Setting the RSVP Limit from anything but -1 will restrict the total RSVP spots available, setting it to -1 will allow for an unlimited spots for RSVP.

Once you're satisfied with the information inputted for the event you can publish event, this will now add the event to the calendar to be accessed by your community.

RSVPing for Events

To RSVP for an event navigate to the Community Calendar, select the event you're wanting to RSVP to and click the "RSVP" green button on the bottom left of the event view. This will now mark yourself as attending the event, at any time you can remove yourself from the RSVP for the event by navigating to the event and clicking the same button.

Sharing Events
