Edit Long Event
The Edit Long Event screen is used to create and maintain the basic settings for a Long Event, including:
- Name / Title
- Reminder Message
- Event Type
- Hours per Instructor (for FCT Reporting)
- Hours per Student (for Curricular Reporting)
The date range defines the active period for the Long Event. However, actual access to Assignments and Exams will be based on the date ranges assigned to those particular elements.
This option will cause the Long Event itself to be displayed in the calendar screen, even if no Exam or assignment has been associated with the Long Event.
When you associate an Exam or assignment with a Long Event, that is what triggers the display of the Long Event on users' calendars. If this Display option is also set to Yes, those items will still be displayed along with the actual Long Event itself. This means that users would see duplicate bars on their calendars: one for the assignment, and one for the Long Event itself.
If you have an Exam or assignment associated with this Long Event, then you should set this Display option to NO so that the duplicate bar does not appear.
If there is no Exam or assignment currently associated with this Long Event, set the Display option to YES if you want the Long Event to appear on the calendar for any users associated with it.
