How to Redirect an Event to an External URL

You can access this feature from your MSL website. Only Content Editors with access to Events Admin can access the Events Admin window.

By adding an External URL to your Event, the Event is displayed on Event Lists but redirects users to the specified page rather than taking them to the default Event page. This can be used to direct users to other pages on your MSL website if, for example, you have a microsite for an event such as your Graduation Ball.

For further information, see Events in Events Admin.

  1. Log in to your MSL website.
  2. From the Admin dropdown, select Events Admin. The Events Admin window is displayed.
  3. Click Add New Event. The New Event window is displayed with the option to create a new event From Scratch or Using Brand as Template.

  4. In the From Scratch section, click Set Up a New Event. The Add Event window is displayed.

  5. In the Organisation field, either:

    1. Start typing the Name of your Organisation or the Organisation ID to which the Event will belong, then select the relevant one from the dropdown that is displayed.

    2. Click the Grouping Tree icon (). The grouping tree is displayed. Click Expand () to display the contents of a node, and click one item to select. The selected item is entered into the Organisation field.

  6. Complete the remaining mandatory fields.

  7. In the External URL field, enter a URL, either for a page on your MSL website or an external website URL.

  8. Update the remaining optional fields as required.

  9. Click Save Event(s). A confirmation message is displayed.
