Event Series

The Event Series allows you to group events listings. Event Series are displayed in the same formats as Events, including the calendar block format (by month, year, week and day), the upcoming events page, and the upcoming events block. In order to create an Event Series, the Events feature must be enabled on the website. If you do not currently have the Events feature on your site but would like to have it set up, please contact webmaster@appstate.edu.

To create an Event Series, from the admin menu, select Content management - Create content. From the Create content page, click Event Series.
