  • Click Hidden and change to Live, or when creating your event, you have the option to make the event Live as well.

IMAGES

  • You can always check for shared images in the CMS if you don’t have one in your group.

SUMMARIES

  • Keep summaries brief and do not repeat them in the body copy.

  • Note that content shared with other groups will be approved by that group’s content manager.
