A typical use for an Event portlet is creating a calendar of events. To do this, first create an event group to identify related events. For instance, if you want to create a calendar of events for "high school band, create an event group with the label 'high school band'
Some views allows users to register or "sign up" for events. When a user registers to attend an event, Web Crescendo sends an email confirming this action to the designated Administrator.
