Using the Calendar
The Calendar represents a powerful tool to share the events of our organization
The following outline will aid in the use of the calendar.
Please note: The Calendar is ONLY intended for The University of Nebraska Medical Center sponsored events.
Events not sponsored by The University of Nebraska Medical Center are not to be placed on the calendar.
The UNMC Calendar Team
There are several broad categories defined by audience, function and content to which you can post.
All postings will need to be submitted in one or more of these categories and your area will need to
determine which one(s).
- Campus Life
- Grand Rounds & Seminars
- Health & Wellness
- Outreach & Public Events
- Student Events
- Training & Human Resources
When posting an event, please select ONLY the categories to which your event MAY apply (do not select others
unless it was approved by the Administrator or is a defined process by your area).
The personnel identified here can assist with posting questions.
These individuals were selected to be Calendar Content Managers by their respective areas.
Calendar Style Guide
Short, concise entries are suggested. If you have additional information, such as forms,
these materials should be referenced at a provided URL where the information resides. It
is a best practice to keep a consistent entry format for your Events by using a set of "Tags" to be
identified by your areas and Administrators (i.e., the word "Training" for training events, etc.)
Every calendar entry must include the following:
Name of the event: To better list your event, please establish a set format
for your area (as mentioned above). For example, Training for Excel. A "Tag" for all "training"
events may be the word "Training". There is not a special field to place these identified "Tags" in your event.
Date and time of the event: This is a required field. Example: 09/18/2008 03:00 PM
Where the event is being held: This is also a required field. The building location is a dropdown menu.
You also must complete the room number and address. If the building is not available, you may type the
location in the "Specific Location" text box.
Point of Contact: Another required field is the sponsor entry. You must include a department/school/division
sponsor as well as a point of contact email and phone number. Do not use individual names. Phone numbers
should include the complete 10-digit number including the area code.
A selection of which calendar(s) the event should be listed (selecting more than 1 calendar will only place
the item on the calendar 1 time, but will be displayed in multiple calendars).
The rest of the information should be captured in the narrative/description section.
- Who is the audience for the event? (for example, entire Creighton community, students, faculty and staff)
- Purpose: Describe the event/program/project
- Cost: Note if the event is free or if there is a registration free, when applicable
