1. Add the section
The CMS Calendar section is useful for creating your events directly from the back office, and sharing their details with your users.
Note that all your events will be in the back office, but only future events will be displayed in your app (like with any other Calendar section in the app).
To add a calendar section you need to go to the APP tab>Sections>Add a section.
Choose the section Calendar between the given options, then the source CMS.
Add a title, click on Add, and you can start adding your content.
If you want, you can put the Display section button to OFF, if you don't want to display the section in your app right away (the section will be invisible until you put it back ON).
2. Event information
Now you can register all the information about the Events that you want to create.
In the first paragraph, at the top of the information page, insert the Event title.
Set up the date and the hour of the Event.
In the date field you can select the duration of the Event: date from --> to, and you can also set up the hours or select “All day” (there will be no start or end hour).
In the Place field, fill in the address where the Event will take place. The latitude and longitude of the location will automatically appear.
You can modify the address by clicking on it or you can delete it by clicking on the “x” next to the address.
The place will be showed on the map and if you click on the symbol which marks the location, you will be able to see some details, such as the title and the address.
3. Description of the event
In the paragraph bellow this section, you can add a description of your event.

The action buttons allows you to insert a phone number, an email, as well as a url for other information or a ticketing service url.
