Events Imported from Duke Event Calendar

Your site may be configured to import Events from the Duke Event Calendar. To add events to your website, simply add it to the Duke Calendar — make sure your department/program is designated in the Group field — and it will automatically appear within 24 hours. If an event has been imported to your site which you do not wish to appear on your site, you can simply unpublish the node.

If you are unsure if your site is importing events from the Duke Event Calendar, please contact trinitywebsupport@duke.edu.
