Firstly, click on Calendar in the left hand column on your Dashboard
This will take you to your calendar where you need to click on the date where you want to add the event and a dialog box will appear
Here you can invite staff to the event by clicking on + and choosing individuals or clicking on Everyone, add a title for the event, any notes, a start and end date, times and whether you wish to notify your staff via email. Then click on Create Event
Any staff members you add to the event will automatically get an email notification.
If you have ticked the box to Notify all staff via email about this new event, all staff will receive an email notification
The event will then appear in your calendar on the date chosen
If you create an event you will be alerted to any conflicting absences, this however does not stop you from booking the event
If you want to edit or delete the event once added to the calendar, if you click on the Event a dialog box will appear where you can edit the event details or delete the event by clicking on the trash can
Adding reminders about the events created and making them private
When you are creating your events you can now ask Staff Squared to send you a reminder about the event and choose when the reminder will be sent and who it will be sent to.
To do this just go to your calendar and choose Event. Add the details as outlined above, and if you want a reminder sent, just click on Reminder Settings. You can then choose when and who to remind and click on the Send reminders box. You can also choose to make it a Private event so that only the staff added will be able to view the event in the Calendar. Then just click on Create event.
