Create Event Widget:

There are two ways to add an event or booking onto the Calendar or Booking calendars.


You can either open the calendar or booking calendar applications via the search bar or FrogDrive, and then manage them in there, or alternatively you can do this via the ‘Create Event’ Widget in a site.

To use the ‘Create Event Widget’ just drag the widget onto a page, and then click it to open the widget settings in the edit panel:


You will then be able to choose which calendar you want this widget to create events for, in the same way you would for the calendar widget:


• you have two choices – either ‘Personal’ which points to the ‘Calendar’
application, or ‘Booking’ which points to the ‘Booking Calendar’ application.


• Once you’ve chosen which calendar type you want to use, you then need to
select from the drop-down list, which calendar item you wish the ‘Create Event’ widget
to point to.

• You also have the ability to allow recurring events or not when using this widget.

Everyone will be able to see the Create Event widget, unless you use Rules to hide it. Permission to add events is handled by the calendars themselves. You will have to set up these permissions in the applications, otherwise users will receive an error message.

The advantage of using the Create Event Widget, is that it saves the number of clicks needed to get to the calendar and add events or bookings to it (especially if you use it on a dashboard).

Once you have finished setting the Create Event widget’s settings, it’s worth adding a calendar widget below the ‘create event widget’ and set it to point to the same calendar. Combining these two widgets like this is a great way to use them, as it means the user adding the event or booking can see it added to the calendar straight away.
