Calendar Tips

Follow these tips when entering events into the calendar:

  • Anyone with a WVU login can submit an event. 
  • Title your event with a clear name. It is not necessary to put the date in your title. That will appear as a field as you complete the form. 
  • Put in a description of the event. You should add contact information in this area also. 
  • Make sure you complete the fields. Don't skip these steps. Add the location, the department, etc. 
  • Add the plain text summary that can be displayed on the digital signage as a feed. 
  • Format times with a.m. or p.m. in the description areas. See WVU's style and punctuation guide for more best practices.
  • WVU uses the tag field to pull events into event feeds on webpages. If you are not an approver, you will not see this field. If you need assistance, contact your college or department's calendar approver. 
  • Add a photo - it is a vital step. You can select from the library if you do not have a photo. It is your responsibility to do this. 
  • You must add alt text for your photo. This is an accessibility mandate. Read more about alt text best practices.
