How do I view calendar item details?

The Calendar tool in a site can be used to post important dates in a course site, such as start and end dates, assessment dates, etc., as well as important due dates in collaboration sites. You can view more details about events in Calendar to learn more about them.

Go to Calendar.

Select Calendar from the tool menu of your site.

Select the item you want to view.

Tip: If you have concurrently scheduled events, it may be difficult to view their titles. To see more details for a particular day, open the View drop-down menu and change your calendar's view to Calendar by Day or List of Events.

View item details.

The available item details will display, including the following:

  • Date
  • Time
  • Description
  • Attachments (if any were added at the time when the event was last updated)
  • Frequency
  • Event Type
  • Owner - The person who created the event.
  • Site - The site where the event was created. This detail is useful when viewing an event in My Calendar in your Home site. When you select links in the item details, you will be sent to the site where the event originated.
  • Event Location
