Event Pages

New in ME 1.22!

  • Updates to Event Resource management to allow for sections within a timeframe

  • Database setting option to allow integration with Microsoft Teams and the automatic creation of meetings for an event audience

All events scheduled into Elentra can have information about them recorded. This can include date and time, location, audience, faculty, attendance, objectives, resources, etc.

Curriculum coordinators and program coordinators can access and edit the content of learning events for their affiliated courses. Faculty assigned to a course as its director can also access and edit the content of learning events in their course. Faculty > Lecturers can only edit the content of learning events for which they are listed as teachers.
