Why would I add an event to the Community Calendar only (and not post to the Forum)?

The "Calendar Only" option is recommended for repeated / similar events — or for a series of events at the same venue.

If you have several related events to announce, you can avoid overwhelming your Forum with separate postings about each one:  

Submit a single "Announcement" posting to the Forum (and not to the Calendar) that describes the ongoing event or series — and then place each event individually on the Calendar. 

To place this type of item on the Community Calendar, choose “Calendar Only” after selecting the appropriate category from these options:

  • Event
  • Announcement
  • Housing and Real Estate (for open houses)
  • Election (for election-related events)
