Customized time periods for "Events", "News"

In the services "Events" and "News", a user can choose between seven standardized time periods (next month, next 3 months, past 3 months, ..) to filter events and news.
Furthermore, the p-admin has the possibility to create self-defined time periods for the platform.

Please note that the standard periods will no longer be displayed, after you have created one or more self-defined period(s).

In order to create a new time period, proceed as follows:

Choose "" from the main menu by clicking on it.

|2| A table with all services is displayed. Click on the “modify” button next to the service “events” or "news".

|3| Now, you see an empty list and a form which needs to be filled out:


Period name:
Enter a short name for the new time period (e.g. next week). Only the first 26 characters will be displayed in the drop-down menu.

Enter a number between 1 and 365 in the input field and choose a time interval (days, months, year) from the drop down menu.

Specify whether the time interval defined previously (length) should point to the past (i.e. last 7 days) or to the future (i.e. next 7 days).

Default period:
Click in this checkbox if you want "events" or "news" during this period to be displayed first whenever a user clicks on "Events" or "News".

|4| Click on „create“ in order to save the new time period.

If you want to use the standardized periods of FCS again, click on "set default".
