You can announce an event directly from your portal front page: Click ‘create’ in the top right corner of the ‘Event’ section.
As a minimum, you want to enter basic information like the headline, the description and the start and end of the event, like with any other appointment in a calendar. Apart from that, you can decide to limit the recipients to certain departments and/or employee groups and decide to request a reply from the employees to know whether they’re attending the event or not.
To avoid irrelevant clutter in your calendar, you can set a date after which the event will be automatically removed from the calendar (select a date in ‘show to’).
Please note that regular employees do not have authorization to post News or create Events.
