New: Event Managers

Created on:
Updated on:

You can now add Event Managers to events in Calendar! These are people who will have all of the same powers as the Event Owner once they've been selected which enables you to have more fine-grained control over who has authority and access to your events.

To get started, head over to the Settings tab of any event and select a few folks from the shiny new Event Managers field and that's it! If you want more info about what it means to own and manage events, read on.


First, let's talk about Event Owners

The owner of an event is the person who is ultimately responsible for pulling everything off. An Event Owner can be anyone in your Calendar account regardless of their permission level. For example: Calendar's lowest permission level, Event Viewer, cannot create or edit anything in regard to events unless they're specifically chosen to be the owner of an event.

As an Event Owner, users have free rein over their events allowing them to change dates, times, bookings, and more. As an administrator, this gives you the freedom to invite people into your Calendar account and only provide access to certain events without handing over the keys to the kingdom.

Now let's talk about Event Managers

Some events are too big for just one person and it takes a team (or... a village 😉) to put it together. Event Managers create a space for that by following the same principal of event ownership: anyone in Calendar can become an Event Manager and have full control over the events they manage.

We hope this makes it easier for you to invite more folks into Calendar so you can confidently share the workload with the right people.


❤️ Team Calendar,
Kayla, Greg, Taylor, Nick, Jared, Tammy, Beth, Michael, and Evan
