How to create an event

Once registered on Well Aware you will be able to create events which will appear on our calendar. These can be one off events, or events which re-occur.

Step 1 Log into Well Aware

In the top right hand corner of the Well Aware home page, click the “Login” button and when prompted, enter your email address and password. If you are already logged in, click the ‘Your account’ button in the top right hand corner.

Step 2 Open “Add new events” page

 

Click the green button labelled “Add new event” located on the right hand side of the screen. This will open a new screen.

 

Step 3 Enter details of the event

Starting with the date (which can be ‘picked’ from a calendar – the default date is ‘today’), enter the details of your event.

Next, enter the start time and end time, if your event does not have a set end time, leave it blank. If the event runs all day, tick the ‘all day’ option.  Clicking the clock symbol next to the start or end time opens a clickable box. First select the hour, then select the minutes.

            

Once you have added details of the event, chose the category and audience type which best describes the event

These can be left blank, but, your event may not be shown on searches performed using these categories as criteria.

If you wish, you can upload a logo for the event. The file will need to be in jpeg or png format.

 

Continue by entering location details and select the region/s which your event covers.
