  5. Enter a start date for the event by entering it in MM/DD/YY format in the Start Date field or selecting the date from the pop-up calendar.
  6. If applicable, also enter an end date.
  7. In the Start Time field, enter the time that the event will start.
  8. In the End Time field, enter the time that the event will end.
  9. In the next fields, enter additional event information, such as information about the event location or the contact person.
  10. If there's any other information you'd like to provide, enter it into the Additional Information section.
  11. If you would like to use Freedom's event registration features to allow people to sign up for this event, click to open one of the other subtabs, Tickets, Attendees and Reports.
  12. To add the event to the website based on the information you've entered, click the Save button. If the event is set for a date in the future, it will be added to the Events Module's upcoming events list and will appear on the live website.
