Edit an Event in the News site

Step 1 - Choose the Event to edit

To edit a previously created Event, click on “News Content” at the top grey bar to search for the Event. The below image shows the following steps to search for and edit an Event.

  1. Under Media Relations select the field Media Relations: Events from the drop-down list.
  2. Enter the Event title in the text box titled Title Contains.
  3. Click Apply to see the search results in the table.
  4. Choose edit at the right most column of the Event row in the table to edit the Event.

The above steps show the minimum number of fields required to search for an Event. Other fields such as Body contains, Admin Unit, Date would help to make the search more specific.

Step 2 - Enter Event information

The Edit Event page is displayed. Some of the fields to be entered are described in the figure below. Fields marked with an asterisk are compulsory.

Body: The Body constitutes the main content that needs to be displayed in the page. Major content of the page is placed in this section. For more information, please see the Body heading under Create a Page section.

Step 3 - Select Admin Units

For the Admin Units select list, choose the units for which the Event belongs. You can select multiple admin units by: on Mac - Press and hold the Command key/on Windows the Ctrl key. For e.g., for a Graduate Event, the admin unit -Graduate under SIT could be chosen. The dashes before the section names represent the hierarchy with the parent section/admin unit. -- (double) denotes a child of the Admin Unit with a - (single) dash. This helps in better content management, access control and associating content to their respective units.

Step 4 - Choose Moderation State

Under the Publishing options tab at the bottom left of the page, choose the Moderation state for the Event. Choose one of the following:

  • Current: Draft: When the Event is not completely edited and needs to be edited later.
  • Needs Review: When the Event is completed but requires moderation before posting it on the News page.
  • Published: When the Event is completed and ready to be published on the main News page.

Also remember to check the Promoted to front page option to see the Event in the News site homepage.

The publishing option may vary depending on the user roles assigned by the Admin for the News section. For any related problems, issues or help, please contact the Site Administrator.

Step 5 - Click Save

Click “Save” to save the Event.
