Churches have lots of events happening throughout the day, week, month, and year! Event Creators in Calendar can create events with schedules, rooms, and resources to stay informed about what's happening on your campus.

Tip

Events that are created through Feeds from Registrations and Groups or through an event request form have some different settings and require additional steps.

Check out this clip from Planning Center University.

Tip

Use Event Templates to make the event creation process even quicker and ensure consistency in all of your events' settings.

From the Events page, select New Event or hover over the date and click New to create an event.
