Approve an event

Any user with a USC shibboleth login can submit events to a department’s event calendar through the Add a Public Event form. These events are not published without your review and approval.

Most often, you’ll use this feature so that others in your department (student workers, staff or faculty setting up a specific event) can help with the calendar. To approve events:

  1. From the dashboard, click “Pending.”
    Note – more often than not, you will see a number here, but when you click through, you will not see any events. This is because the calendar consolidates ALL submitted events into that number, and does not distinguish by departmental permission. 
  2. Click “Verify” to approve a submitted event, and the red x to deny it. Once the event has been approved, it will appear publicly on your department’s calendar.
  3. Want to edit an event? Click the event title and you can add tags, details, or a better photo.
