CREATING AN EVENT

Adding an event to your platform will allow users to register for in person and virtual events. After the user attends the event, the module will be marked as completed in the platform so the user can receive credit for attending. Users enrolled in individual event modules will be automatically RSVP'd to the event. 

Note: Users are not automatically RSVP'd when enrolling users into a course with events in it, only the individual event module. Users will also not be RSVPd when enrolled in an event module that has already passed. 

To add an event to your platform click on the "Add new" button. Choose the "Event" button from the "Add New" drop down to create an event as a module. You will be brought to the event details page. A list of different fields will appear for you to fill out.

After the event occurs, users can be marked as "Attended" in two ways. The first way is for the admin to mark the user as "Attended" in the reporting tab (visit the Events Reporting article to learn more). The second way is to use the completion code. This is set up while you are creating the event in the Content tab of the Admin. The presenter must give out the completion code during or after their presentation. The users can login and enter this code in the completion code field that will appear in the module details after the event is over. The users status will be listed as "Absent" until the code is entered or the admin marks the user as attended in the reporting tab.
