The "event” allows you to describe the event, give details about the location, send invitations, and to collect responses. These appear on your calendar and are accessible from your profile or the calendar icon at the top of the page.
Events related to a forum or group can be accessed on that place's menu bar.
Creating an Event
Events can be created in the same way other content is created. Look for a link in the Actions box or select "Create" in the user bar.
Complete the form
After creating the event, you may invite users in the Network. A user will see invitations to an event on their Actions page.
For a group, there are a couple of widgets for the group overview page which will allow you to show "upcoming events" or to feature a particular event.
