The Upcoming Events board is a great place to share information on future Fabric events with the rest of the community.
Gather the following information:
- Event title
- Event summary (short, about 1 sentence)
- Event location
- Start date and time (required)
- End date and time (required)
- Event description (this can be a longer text that should include an image)Image (370x300 or larger, with the same aspect ratio)
- Event Tag (In Person, On-line, or User Group)
Filling out the Form
Complet the required fields and optional fields, as appropriate. As with any other community post, asterisks will indicate which fields are required. Below is an example of what event fields could look like.
The image below represents the lower portion of the screen that includes the description, which makes up the body of your event post.
It is not nessessary to include an image in the body or your event post, but if you do, the image will show in the Upcoming Events Board, giving your event more visibility. If an image is not included in your post, there will be an image placeholder in the Upcoming Events Board.
Be sure to include a URL in the description if you would like to promote a registration page or a website with more details on the event.
Once you select Post at the bottom right of the screen, you will see your event in a format similar to a regular forum post.
From here, you can go back and edit your post, as with any other forum post, or nativate to the Upcoming Events listing page to see how others will view your post when looking for events.
Viewing Your Final Post
In order to view your final post, navigate to the Upcoming Events board. You can get back into a post to read more information by clicking on the green title above the image or in the "What" section. If your image aspect ratio doesn’t exactly equal the equivalent of 370x300, this is a great opportunity to see if your image is stretched too much.
