As of the February/March 2024 update to Events in Leo, we would discourage you from adding new Long Events to Leo. 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.

Page Statistics

The Section Screen Statistics shows details on activity for the Section screen.

Non-Student counts refer to all Users who are not enrolled Students in the current Course. Thus, the Non-Student count may also contain Students who are not enrolled in the current Course or linked to a given Event.

The numbers for Non-Enrolled Users is most like exaggerated due to the fact that Faculty and Staff, when using Event and Course screens, often use functions that cause the screens to refresh, and each refresh counts as a new visit to the screen.
