The Dashboard lets you keep track of, and quickly access, the calendars you administrate. When you log in to PlanIt Purple, the Dashboard is the first thing you'll see.
To access the Dashboard, visit the PlanIt Purple home page and click the "Calendar Administration" link at the top right. Log in using your NetID and password, and you'll be taken right to the Dashboard.
A Quick Tour of the Dashboard
Now that you're logged in, you'll see a heading that reads "My Calendars." You may not be surprised to learn that the calendars you administer -- "your calendars," if you will -- are listed in this space. To modify any of these calendars, or to add, change, or delete an event from one, simply click that calendar's name.
At the top right, you'll see a heading marked "Personal Profile." This contains your name and contact information, which PlanIt Purple automatically assigns to any new calendars you create.
PlanIt Purple draws your contact information from Northwestern's university directory, and does not keep your information on file. As such, we aren't able to modify it directly. If you want to change your contact information for any reason, follow the link that reads "Edit Your Online Directory Information" to do so.
XML Feed Builder
The XML Feed Builder lets you combine events from multiple calendars into a single XML feed, which you can then use to display these events on any web page. Read more about the XML feed builder here.
