Calendar application is used to create events via the Front End of the intranet by users with appropriate access.

This page explains how different security levels work in the Calendar application.

Security applied at the subsite level gets inherited down to the Calendar application by default, and you also have the ability to change security settings for the Calendar application as a whole.

Security can also be applied against individual calendars that in turn controls who can and cannot add events to the specific calendar.

Below are the levels of security explained for Layout Manager in the Front End.

Deny Access:

Users denied access cannot view events in the Calendar.

Read Only:

Users can view events in the Calendar, but cannot add new events.

Creators and Contributors:

Can view events, also add events that would need to be approved by Full Control users, before it gets displayed on the Calendar.


Can view events, and add new Calendar events, without having to go through any approval.


Full Control: 

Users with Full Control access have can view events in the Calendar, and also add new events, no approval required. 

Full Control users can also set up Security for other users for the Calendar application via the Front End, and this is done as follows:

  • Login to the Front End
  • Access the Calendar application for the selected subsite 
  • Click on Manage Security
  • Add the users / user groups and assign one of the six different security levels from the drop-down
  • Click Save to save the changes
