Edit an Event

If you are authorized to do so, you can create and manage events. Some administrators are also authorized to create and manage regions that span multiple regions.

To manage any type of event, open the Event menu in the main navigation bar and then select Event Management. The Event Management page shows a set of details for each event, including the event icon, whether it is a multi-region event, and its status, start and end dates, title, and more.

Note: For information on multi-region events, refer to About Events. For instructions on creating this type of event, refer to the appropriate procedure in Create an Event.

The options you see in the Action column depend on the following:

  • Your rights in relation to this event, and

  • The current status of the event, such as ongoing or ended.

Note the following about events:

  • Editing an active event generally includes updating the event details. For multi-region events, this can include adding and removing regions.

  • Some events end automatically after a period of time. An authorized user can manually end an event prior to the indicated end time.

  • You can also schedule events to begin at a future date. This is useful for sporting events, training sessions, drills, and exercises.

  • Users who are authorized to work with ad hoc events can create, edit, and end them.

  • EMResource automatically sends notifications to appropriate users when events are created and, for some, when they are ended. In addition, adding a resource to an active event and changing the regions associated with an active multi-region event also generate automated notifications.

  • You can also print or export the event details view.
