How do you manage Events in Umbraco as an Admin
Events can be managed in Umbraco in the same fashion that News/Bulletin posts can be managed. By accessing the Events tab in Umbraco, in the left handed menu, you can search for specific Events based on keywords or publishing date.
When you have found the event you want to edit you simply click on it and a right sided editor opens, where you can edit all the initial fields in the Event.
