If you run across an event which you don’t want to miss posting, but complete information is, as yet, unavailable:
Include event’s begin and end time at beginning of TITLE box entry, for example:
7p-8p City (event type) – Event Name
Check the “All Day” box. This will invert the color appearance of the event on the Monthly View of the Calendar (it will appear like Alerts! appear).
Complete as much of the other data entry boxes as you can (including the post-Description standard text as to the Source group sponsoring the event, etc.)
Looking at the Monthly View of the Calendar, you should check with the group on any specifics, as the date draws near. Once specifics are obtained,click on the Event, go into “edit” mode:
• DE-SELECT the “All Day” check box,
• Fill in the Begin Time and End Time (remove these from the Title).
• Update the missing information.
Then re-SAVE. You’ll see the event take its proper chronological place under that date.
PRIOR TO POSTING: At your calendar.google.com account, make sure you click “OFF’ your base google calendar under “My Calendars” and click ON your intended Activist Calendar under “Other Calendars.” When adding a new event.
“What” (Title) box format is as follows:
City (event type) – Event Name (Optional: Group, or other info)
NOTE: Event types are in parentheses and are generally in lower case. They are not “set in stone,” but kept abbreviated. They’re supplied primarily for searching the Calendar by Editors and Subscribers, alike. Frequent terms include:
(educ) – educational
(reg mtg) – regular meeting
(plan mtg) – planning meeting
The MI Activist Calendar has many other examples you can review.

At your calendar.google.com account, when entering a new event, Where box format is:
Street ### and Street Name, City, State ZipCode
Please, do NOT place anything else in this box. Why? Because the Google automatic mapping process may not work properly.
The Location Name (i.e., the even’ts venue - e.g., Ralph’s Restaurant), or Building name (e.g. “City-County Building”) plus its Telephone No. should begin your entry in the “Description” box, followed by a space dash space, then begin the actual event description.

At your calendar.google.com account, when entering a new event, Description box entry
Location / Establishment / Building Name (area) tel-ephone – Begin description . . .
and it ends with:
. . . end of description. – Contact Person (area) tel-ephone firstname.lastname@example.org
post-description standard text (using MI Activist Calendar in example):
- Source: Name of Group (optional: reported by Editor Name)
Think of a friend to invite, then help expand the MI Liberty Coalition movement by FORWARDING this to them!
- MAC Subscribers: Connect the “unawakened” to events / groups. BE A 1-PERSON ARMY !

This post-description text is to provide links to connect readers to the hosting group, remind readers to think beyond themselves (bring others!), and to link readers to your state’s Activist Calendar (hopefully bring more Editors and Subscribers to your Calendar; the greater the number of users, the more useful it becomes to grow the Liberty movement in your state.)
Adapt post-description text for your state’s Activist Calendar, copy and paste this in a Notepad. Keep it on your computer’s Desktop for quick retrieval, copy and paste at the bottom of every new event posted.
If you placed the Event Name in the Title (What”) box, don’t repeat it here. If you put the street address, City, ST Zip in the “Where” box, don’t put it here.
(However, remember the Location Name – or the event’s venue name – starts this box, followed by its Phone No. You can find this information by plugging in the address in “Reverse Look-up” at WhitePages.com.)
