Starting New Programs: Updating Program Information

The administrative interface for a program page. Notice how the top right of the Program description and detail boxes both have "Edit" buttons for program organizers

The description and start and end time can be updated after the initial creation of an event. To modify the description, click the “Edit Description” button. To modify the start or end times or other details, click the “Edit Details” button.

Additionally, once an event is created, you can update additional information in the event, such as:

  • Facilitators -- by default the program page creator is entered as a “Facilitator on the Event”. Additional facilitators can be added from among registered Wikipedians from among contributors who have signed into the dashboard before. Facilitators have the right to edit the program page.
  • Passcode -- which can be used to restrict the participants in an event
  • Scheduling a data update -- this requests that the servers recalculate the contributions of editors in an event (this allows for you to query historical data for past events, to see updates of data).
