The following process describes how to schedule multiple 'Live Online' events at once by importing event dates and details from a spreadsheet.
- Select Events from the main menu.
- Press Tools.
- Select Import events from the dropdown menu
- Follow the process described on screen and select the time zone in which the events should be imported with.
- Note: Events will be imported in a draft state and be visible from the Draft tab within the Event sections.
- Approve the draft events
- CourseSchedule * Options: Basic (previously called Workshop), Advanced (previous called Multi-session)
- CourseCode - The specific event code that you wish to display. If no Event Code is entered, the default naming convention will apply; e.g. TEST-001, TEST-002, TEST-003, etc.

Fill out your CSV import column called VenueName with the 'Online' venue name. This value will not actually be used for the import but you do need to enter this as a placeholder value.
