      Description

      We have just updated to Moodle 3.4+. When our teachers add an event to the calendar, the description field details do not appear or save when you view the event on the calendar.  If you go back to edit the event the description information is gone.

      1. To create a new calendar event:
        •  In the Upcoming events block, click New event... (at bottom).
      • or - 
        •  In the Calendar block, click the month title, and when the Calendar opens, click New event (top-right).
        The New event page will open.
      1. Select the type of event (Course, Group, or User). Anyone can create a user event, but only instructors can create Course or Group events.
        Note: To create a Group event, groups must already be set up in a course. After selecting Group as the type of event in the Group event field, select the specific group.
      2. In the Event title ** *field, _ enter a *name for the event._
      3. (Optional) In the Description field, enter a brief description of the event.
      4. For Date, select the date and start-time for the event.
      5. Click Save changes and the course calendar will open displaying the new event.
