This update will bring together the features of Long Events and Regular Events in Leo into a new, modern user interface. Users will be able to create events, all-day events (that span one or more days), or events that start on one day and end on the next.

If you have questions about the new Events user interface, please contact the Leo Administrator at your institution.

The purpose of the Long Event is represent Assignments that span more than one Event, and to show the progress of each User within the Long Event

Edit Long Event

The Edit Long Event screen is used to create and maintain the basic settings for a Long Event, including:

  • Name / Title
  • Description
  • 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.
