If you administer a calendar in PlanIt Purple, you may want to allow other people to add events to your calendar or edit existing events on that calendar. There are two roles you can assign to other PlanIt Purple users: Calendar Manager and Calendar Contributor.
Add someone as a Calendar Manager if you share administrative duties with that person. Calendar Managers can add calendar events, modify existing events, and edit calendar data (such as the calendar's name, description, custom URL, default event category, etc.). Calendar Managers can also add Contributors and Managers to your calendar, and edit these users' roles (changing a user from a Contributor to a Manager, or vice versa).
Add someone as a Calendar Contributor if you want them to be able to add and edit calendar events, but not to delete any calendar events or change any calendar information (such as the calendar's name, description, custom URL, default event category, etc.).
NOTE: To perform any of the tasks listed on this page, you must first click "Calendar Administration" at the top right-hand corner of the PlanIt Purple home page. Log in using your NetID and password if necessary. This will take you to the Dashboard.
Assign a new user to a calendar
1. In the Dashboard, click the name of the calendar to which you want to add users. This will take you to the calendar admin panel.
2. If you want to add a Manager to your calendar, click "add manager" under the "Calendar Managers" heading in the right-hand column of the page. If you want to add a Contributor, click "add contributor" in the "Calendar Contributors" section.
3. A popup window will ask for the NetID of the Manager or Contributor you're adding. Type the new user's NetID in the field and click "OK." The window will close, and your new user's NetID will appear next to a small icon under either "Calendar Managers" or "Calendar Contributors," depending on which type of user you've added.
Change User's role
If you need to grant new administrative privileges to a calendar user (or reduce a user's privileges), change their status from Contributor to Manager or vice versa.
To change a user's role, simply click on the icon next to the user's NetID and drag the user to the Calendar Managers or the Calendar Contributors field, directly above the "add manager" or "add contributor" text.
If you need to remove a user's ability to manage or contribute to your calendar, click on the icon next to the user's NetID and drag it into the area that says "(drag users here to delete)" next to the trash can icon. The user will be removed from the list of calendar managers and contributors.
