Locations are the places where events happen. Administrators set locations up using this page. Event authors can then assign to their events the locations that show here.


Locations

Locations have a fixed structure (up to six hierarchic levels). Clicking on a location name at a given level displays the child locations associated to it (or a blank list if none exist). Visitors can search for events based on their location. Your Calendar Site can have an unlimited number of locations, and up to six levels of child locations.

  • Location level 1 (parent location)

  • Location level 2 (level 1 child location)

  • Location level 3 (level 2 child location)

  • (etc., up to level 5 child locations of location level 1)


Working with locations

Locations are displayed in a table, with a check mark indicating if that location contains sub-locations. Clicking on a location name displays in a new page the sub-locations associated to it (if there are any). When working with Locations use the drop down menu on the right hand side of the Location name "Actions" to insert, edit, or delete Locations.
