Posting an event to Inside AHS is the easiest way to get the word out to the right people. Let us help you share your activities!
Step 1: Add a new event item
Once you’re logged in to Inside AHS, click on the Inside AHS Event link on the left menu.
Then click on the Add New button right next to Inside AHS Events at the top of the page.
Step 2: Fill out the required fields
There’s certain info we want to make sure is included in all our events.
Make sure you add a title for your event that’s descriptive. Example: “AHS Student Council monthly meeting” is more effective than “AHS Student Council.”
Styling tip: No need to capitalize every word in the title! Use sentence case, and don’t include ending punctuation.
Date and time
Set the date and time for your event. If it’s an all-day event, just check the Yes box. To choose a date, click in a date box and select the correct date from the calendar. To set a time, enter in your time in 24-hour format as the helper text instructs.
With few exceptions, events have a location. Use as many of these fields as needed.
For buildings on campus, just use their campus abbreviation. Example: Use “AHSB” instead of “Applied Health Sciences Building”. The Inside AHS audience is familiar with campus building codes! For room, just include the room number—no need to type “room” before it.
Styling tip: When writing street addresses, abbreviate directions and street types. Example: 1919 W. Taylor St.
Now just tell us about your event! In this editor, you can format your text, and add links and bulleted lists.
Teaser text shows up below your news title on our Inside AHS Calendar. Enter your teaser text—one sentence is ideal—in the Teaser Copy field. Example: The event “AHS Student Council meeting” has teaser text of “Join us for board elections and food catered by Pompei.”
It’s important to always list an event contact for accommodations. Make sure to include the name, email and phone number of an event organizer that can field questions and requests.
Step 3: Fill out optional fields
If that’s all you want to complete, you’re done and can publish now! If you want to go a little further, read on.
Have a good photo to accompany your event? You can add a header image, video or slideshow by clicking Add Visual Element and choosing the appropriate component.
To upload an image, click the Add Image button. Simply drag and drop your photo from its location on your computer right on to the Select Image window. It should appear in the gallery with a blue checkbox and border, and also show up on the right side of the gallery. At the bottom right of the Select Image window, click the Select button. Your image must be at least 1440 x 786 px. Need help formatting your photo? We can help.
Include a response button?
Want folks to RSVP or register to your event? Click on the “Yes” button and complete the fields.
Step 4: Publish
Just click the Publish button and you’re all set!
You have the ability to publish changes to your events any time you’d like. If you’re updating after the first publish, that button will instead say Update.
Note: Your post will not be immediately visible. To keep our site as fast as possible for the end user, there’s a waiting period while our site looks for new changes and publishes them. In general, new posts are visible within 1-2 hours, but changes can sometimes take up to 24 hours.
If you think something went wrong and your changes didn’t go through, let us know!
