This usage section covers the following areas:
ADMIN Account Setup
Any user wishing to submit an event to the instrument calendars need to request ADMIN access by emailing Anne-Marie Girard with the following information:
Upon receiving notification that you have been added as an ADMIN, you can login and submit new events to the calendar. Instructions on submitting events can be found on the Calendar Help and Basic Usage. After entering the information for the event and clicking "Continue," you will be taken to a Preview screen (pictured below). Make sure that the "Auto-approve on My Calendars" checkbox is checked before you click "Submit." (This checkbox allows your event to be posted immediately and only appears if you have logged in.)
Overlapping Calendar Entries
The Calendar was designed to allow for simultaneous entry of multiple events. Therefore, users entering events need to verify (both before and after submitting an event) that their event does not overlap with another user's event. The following example illustrates two users on the Nanodrop calendar with overlapping events. This is not acceptable, because the Core Facilities only has a single Nanodrop available for use.
Note: There are different calendar views available in Advanced view via the following icons:
These icons respectively represent "Day," "Week," "Month," and "List" view.
After submitting your event, please carefully look at the calendar to verify that your event been posted and that it does not overlap with any other event. If you find that you have overlapped with another user's event, you need to delete your event and reschedule for an available time.
If you have additional questions about the calendars, please contact the CQLS Core Lab or Matthew Peterson.
