The Calendar is available through the Web Office Home > Calendar widget and the Web Office Calendar page.

Selecting the Event Type

There are two types of Calendar Events: Corporate or Shared.

  • Corporate events are those that are created and managed by corporate.
  • Shared events are created by Associates in the Web Office. When creating an event, Associates can add to one or both of the following calendars:
    • Private Calendar
    • Shared Calendar
    Creating a shared event creates an event for all Associates. Any shared event will be sent to the Calendar admin page where corporate can review, edit, or delete.

Disabling Shared Calendar Events:
1. In Web Office Admin, navigate to Administration > Admin Settings.
2. In the Admin Settings page, click the Disable shared calendar events toggle on.
3. The page saves automatically.

Saving the Event

  1. Click the Published toggle to publish the event now after saving the configuration.

    Alternatively, you can publish the event from the Events List by clicking the Publish icon.

  2. The rest of the settings are Multi-Faceted Configuration (MFC). Enter your specific configurations on who can view the calendar item.

  3. Once all required fields are complete, click SAVE.

To edit an event, click the Edit icon. While editing, If you want to take over a Shared event, you can change Event Type to Corporate.

This will remove the Associate from the event, and they will no longer have the ability to edit.

You can’t change the event type back to Shared after changing to Corporate.

Deleting an Event

  1. Click the Edit icon.
  2. The Edit Calendar Item pop-up window opens.
