Event actions

There are a number of actions that can be taken on events in the list, including reviewing, approving, or denying an event.

 

     The Dude Says:

When managing your events from the Pending Events List, you may see an exclamation mark icon ( or ) next to an event in the list. Be advised, when one of these icons is displayed, it means that action is needed on the event for some reason. Reasons that you may need to take action on an event include:

  • () The event has expired insurance and needs to be updated with current insurance information.
  • ( or ) The event is double booked with another event and one of the two events should be moved. *Note: The red exclamation icon will display only when a location has been set to "Prevent Double Booking".
 

 

  1. Click the Actions drop-down menu on the event you would like to manage.
  2. Select one of the available options under General or Approval:
    • Review Event will open the event form and allow you to review all event details before choosing to Approve, Deny, or Edit the event.
    • Approve will allow you to sign-off on an event, if you are part of the approval process for this event.
    • Force Approve will allow you to bypass the normal approval process and fully approve this event. *Note: This option is only available for Tenant Administrators in Event Manager.
    • Deny will allow you to deny this event and provide a note to the requester to inform them why the event was denied.

 

 

How to bulk approve events

You can approve multiple events at the same time using the Bulk Actions menu.
