Content Tip Header with checkmark Images: It’s best practice to add an image to an event. Check for shared images in the CMS if you have none in your group. Learn more about images here.

Summaries: Content entered into the summary appears under the title when widgets pull events on a page. Keep summaries brief and do not repeat them in the body copy, otherwise they duplicate on the event page. 

Sharing is essential to our crowd-sourcing effort. Enter groups who might want to post your event. Learn more about the importance of sharing content.
