The Event Card lets you display event details for an existing event as a Card on another intranet page.
The event details displayed can include event title, parent calendar, type of event, time, location, description and a link to add the event to an external calendar. The event title and parent calendar link to the event page and parent calendar page respectively. If the event has event registration enabled, users can RSVP to the event from the Event Card, and see when event registration closes. To learn more, see Event registration.
An event can be advertised on a News page/Card by creating a News Post and adding an Event Card to it. When setting up the Event Card, you might choose to deselect the checkbox Display the event title, and use the event title as your News Post page title instead.
If a user does not have view permissions to an event page, but does have view permissions to a page with the corresponding event Card on it, the user will not be able to see the event Card.
