Submitting A New Event on EMS

The Event Management System allows events to be added to the Master calendar as well as the Special Events calendar that will display events on the EMS RSS Feed.

Note: You must have administrator privileges in order to make the following changes.

  1. Check the featured event box if you want the event and corresponding image to be seen on the master calendar carousel. This is not required.
  2. Add the Event Title
  3. Add the Event Link. This is usually the registration link, or the link to the event found on the Center’s website
  4. Copy and paste the Description using the HTML Editor.

  1. The contact name and email will be filled in automatically. Check the hide box if you want your contact information hidden from being displaying
  2. In the Calendar drop down, you may select multiple entries. If you only want the event to appear on the homepage RSS feed, select Special Events
  3. Enter the Center or School name under department
  4. Enter the Name of the location and link. The link field is not required.

  1. Specify the time and whether or not the event lasts all day.
  2. Include the Event Image for every event.

EMS Master Calendar Modification

  1. Connect to the server via Microsoft Remote Desktop
  2. Locate: C:\inetpub\wwwroot\MasterCalendar (under My Computer, C drive)

In order to add the Mason Law logo in the master calendar of events, I had to modify the master template file (Calendar.master). Scroll down to line 105, you’ll see this:

<input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATEGENERATOR" id="__VIEWSTATEGENERATOR" value="28B11E50" />
<input type="hidden" name="__VIEWSTATEENCRYPTED" id="__VIEWSTATEENCRYPTED" value="" />
<div id="ctl00_HeaderContainer" class="HeaderContainer show-large">

<div style="background-color:#063; width:100%;"><a href=""><img src="" alt="Antonin Scalia Law School, George Mason University" ></a><a href=""><img src="" alt="Calendar of Events" ></a></div>

<div class="row po">
<div class="twelve columns">
<div id="ctl00_Header_imgBannerDiv" class="imgBanner centered pointer"><img src="" alt="Banner Image" style="border-width:0px;" /></div>

This template needs to be update every time the EMS calendar is upgraded.
