  • Start date*, End date*. Enter a date or select if from the calendar calendar-events-3 . Set the exact time of needed;
  • Periodic. Check this option if you want the event to repeat on a regular basis and set the following parameters:  
    • Frequency. Select how often the event should repeat: on business days, daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annually.
    • End. Set the date that the periodic event should stop reoccurring. If you leave this field empty, the event will reoccur until you edit the page and set an end date;  
  • Participants*. The current user is added as a participants by default. To add another user, click chat_reports-7 and select a person from the list. All selected users will see the event in their personal calendars;
  • Place. Specify where the event will take place.

After that the event will be added to the calendar.

If you are trying to schedule your event in a time slot that has already been booked, ELMA365 will show you a warning message.

Here you can review the event details and edit them by clicking Edit. You can also set up a reminder for this event: click +Reminder and set the time. You will then receive a notification to your activity stream  at the chosen time.

Reschedule an event

There are two ways to reschedule an event:
