If you have a lot of calendar items that you want to add, you can create them in Excel or another system. Copy them to the Windows clipboard with the date, description and details (in columns in that order), then paste them here in bulk.

Calendar item properties


This will appear in the calendar date box.


If checked, this item will not be visible on VSys Live.

Calendar date

First date that the calendar item will show. If the current day is before this date, the item will be visible here in the editor but not on VSys Live.

Show for multiple days/Show through

If Show for multiple days is checked, you will get an option to select the last date it will show.

First date visible/Last date visible

These don't affect what days the item appears on the calendar, they affect when it's visible. For example you can define the entire year's calendar items in January but make it so that some of them don't appear more than sixty days beforehand, even for people who look at those future months.
