Depending on your permissions, you may be allowed to directly add events (i.e. no need to request an event). To directly add an event in Coursedog, navigate to the Events tab and click the “+New Event” button at the top of the page.
Note that for a user to add an Event directly, they must both i) have the 'Add Event' permission, and ii) be included in the list of Allowed Roles for the Event Type.
A modal will appear in which you can detail the title, description, time and location of the event.
To make sure Coursedog recognizes your event complete the following:
- Time and Date Range
Note that the description and organization fields are not required. Once you click “Add Event” the event will be visible in both the list and calendar views in the events tab, as well as the rooms tab.
Once the event is created, you can click on it from the list of events or select 'More Options' on the card to access the full Event Form and add/edit information. You will then be directed to the relevant form based on the selected Event Type.

If you are creating a multi-day Event, in order to ensure your multi-day event is accurately displayed on the calendar, we recommend users create a new meeting for each day of the event. This is because events will only display on the calendar if their meeting start date is within the date range of the month, week, or day calendar view. To easily add multi-day meetings users can leverage recurrence patterns. When adding a multi-day event directly, be sure to follow the steps outlined above to access ‘more options.’ Then, on the ‘Meetings & Locations’ card, select ‘repeat’ and configure the desired settings:
