The university's online calendar, http://calendar.utexas.edu, aka Texas Today, is powered by a a third party service called Localist and is managed by the University Communications office. Learn more about the service on the University Communications wiki page: UT Calendar (Sarah and the Web team work directly with them to set up the following feeds)
The following information is provided to empower you to manage your own events but it can get complicated and the COFA Web team is more than happy to help. Please don't hesitate to contact us, firstname.lastname@example.org.
A great place to start is with the general overview and best practices for events management on our Instruction site http://sites.utexas.edu/cofadrupal/advanced/events/
Content editors can check a box to automatically share events to the university calendar on the department and unit Drupal websites created by and managed by the COFA Web team. Once the box is checked, events are automatically sent to the university calendar through an iCal feed. (Note, events shared through these feeds do not send images. In order to be selected to be featured on the UT homepage an event must be submitted at least 10 days in advance of the event and be accompanied by "high-quality" imagery.)
Anyone can submit an event manually by logging in http://calendar.utexas.edu.
If you have special access (see below), there is a "Redirect Loop" bug that you may run into, if you click the "Submit an Event" button before clicking into the Admin area.
Anyone can edit their own manually entered events.
Refined Search allows you to select only your department and select only your feed from the "Import Type."
As noted in the instruction site, you must manually delete all events from all calendars.
Adding Images, Value and Get Featured
You're encouraged to log in to the university calendar to edit all high profile events whether they are entered manually or automatically. Add a high quality image and lots of juicy publicity info.
