Oftentimes events are thought of as having a defined start and end time (e.g., working a shift in the kitchen from 8:00 am to 11:00 am on Wednesday), but there are several ways to structure the time-formats of events.


TABLE OF CONTENTS


Event Type Examples


Start Time to End Time Events

This is the most common way events are formatted in VolunteerHub.  These events take place during a defined amount of time set within a single day.


Within the Volunteer View, these events display the start time in a pill above the name of the event and show the start and end times and duration.


Start Time to End of Event

This event is created by setting both the start and end time and date to the same values.  These events have a defined time that they begin but no preset end.


Within the Volunteer View, these events display with the start time in the pill above the name of the event.  They show a start time with no end time and no duration.


All Day Events

An All Day event is accomplished by setting the start and end date to consecutive days and leaving the default values for time (12:00 am).


Within the Volunteer View, these events display the start time as 'All Day' within the pill and no defined times nor duration.

Multi-Day Events

Multi-Day events span many days, weeks, or months.  


Within the Volunteer View, these events always display at the top of the list.  The pill above the event name displays the date range of the event, and no time nor duration of hours is present.

If set to calendar view, multi-day events only display once, as the top event on the current day.
