Events, aka a Calendar, is a very handy way of letting your site visitors know what's happening with your organization. There are several ways to display Events. Each event will include the obvious, title, date and time. They can also include optional details, images, links to a page with more information, contact information and a map for each event.
Events can be one-time occasions or repeating events. They can be categorized for filtered lists.
You can also setup a syncing option with iCal friendly calendars.
When you click the Events collection icon on the black Admin bar to the left of your screen, you will see two options:
Even though it is listed second, the first thing you'll want to do is take a look at the Settings. This is where you can add sunset times, categories and sync an iCal calendar. These are all optional except you will need at least one category. Settings are mostly for initially setting up your calendar, but you may return to this section and edit it whenever needed.
See the Settings page for details

Your SimpleUpdates website initially comes with a public Calendar page already included. You need do nothing. It is ready to display events as soon as you add them to your Events List.
If for any reason you need to replace this default page you may do so by clicking the Pages icon, then clicking the blue [Add Page] button.
