How to create an event
You go to the Events page in the navigation and find the "Create event" button on the left. Here you can decide whether you’re creating a public or private event.
The following input screen looks the same for both options.
The basic requirement for the event is a name, everything else is optional. However, it makes senseto add more information to the event, such as a location and time, as well as a description. This ensures that all of the potential participants have all the information they need. You should also define an organizer: You are either the organizer yourself or you specify a page/community for which you are an admin.
Via the advanced options, you can add further information such as a maximum number of participants.
The next step depends on whether you are creating a public or private event:
- Public: With the "Create event" button, you create an event that is visible to everyone
- Private: Instead of the "Create event" button, you can see the "Invite colleagues" button and can then invite your colleagues:
In the overview, you can mark the colleagues who you want to invite. In the right-hand column, you can also clearly see who you have already selected.
What’s more, from Cloud releases 26 and 27, you can invite the members of public communities and subscribers of public pages to your private event – provided that they have the corresponding permissions, which are assigned under the general permissions. The permission "Invite groups" can also now be found under the general permissions.
Once all of the settings have been made and potential participants have been invited, you can publish the event via "Create".
And don’t forget: If you have activated Microsoft 365 integration, you will also find the event in your Outlook calendar. It couldn’t be easier!
