Are you a campus events calendar user? Get pointers on the new virtual event designation and more

Do you post events on the campus events calendar? The tool is updated with the following new features:

  • The new “experience” field allows you to mark the event as virtual. Selecting virtual will present additional fields for entering dial-in instructions, a livestream URL and/or livestream embed code.
  • In the “status” field, you can mark an event as live, canceled, postponed or sold out. When an event status is changed to canceled, for example, the cancellation is automatically indicated in the event title, so you do not have to manually make the edit.

Additionally, as a security best practice, Zoom meeting links should not be posted in calendar events unless the Zoom meeting has security settings suggested by OIT. The recommendation is to have interested participants register in advance to receive the Zoom meeting link. (Web Express users can create a webform to set up an event registration.)
