Events Calendar: Adding Tags for RSS Feeds

Summary

Web and Mobile Development (WMD) manages the main UNH events calendar and creates RSS feeds for individual departments. Calendar events must be tagged properly in order to show up in specific feeds. This article describes the process of adding tags to both new and existing ads.

NOTE: This article assumes you have an account with "Standard" user access to the events calendar. Need an account? Go to https://www.unh.edu/it/accounts and log into the Accounts Management System to request access to the events calendar.
