Add a New Location to the List

The Events Calendar has a large selection of university locations available for all users that can be further customized on individual events by adding a room number to the field once a building is selected. You can also add an entirely new location for use in multiple events; this location will be available only to members of your calendar group.

  1. Select the "Toolbox" option on the right side within the purple admin banner.
  2. Select "Locations" from the menu.
  3. Click the blue "+ Add a new location" button in the upper right corner. (Double check that the location does not already exist in the list, perhaps in a different name than you are calling it.)
  4. On the Add a new location screen, complete the following fields:
    1. Location title
    2. Location address
    3. Keywords (optional)
  5. Location Title:
    1. Enter a location title in the "Enter a title for this location" field.
    2. There is no character limit, however, the system will cut of the location name based on space as needed.
  6. Location Address:
    1. Type an address to use for this location and click the "Find" button.
    2. If multiple potential matches exist, a window will appear asking you to select which address is correct. For best results, include a city or zip code.
    3. On the right side of the screen a Google Maps preview will appear with a pin at your entered address. If necessary, you can click and drag the pin to relocate it within the map.
  7. Keywords:
    1. This field is optional.
    2. Using commas to separate each word, provide keywords that you can use to make it easier to search for this location while using the Events Calendar.
  8. Click the "Save this location" button in the bottom right corner when you're done.
