Managing Calendar Events From A Calendar Page

One advantage of our flexible security system is that you can enable other users exclusive access to edit the calendar events right on the calendar itself. SiteApex allows you to assign a specific group of users the ability to add and edit calendar events without accessing your main site administration area. You can even let your website visitors submit their own events and allow you to manage those events before they display on your calendar.

  2. On the Edit screen click the Module tab (grey).

    Optionally, If a specific security group is to have access to manage events, select the security groups required in the Front-End Admin Secure Groups drop down field. Any user under those groups are given the ability to log in on the calendar page and manage events. See the bottom of article for assistance on making groups and users.

    On top of this, turn on Enable Front-End Public Event to allow your website visitors access to submit events for your calendar. These are submitted but require review before they will display. See below on managing submitted events
