Create, Update, and Delete Guidelines

Create

Before creating an event, ask yourself:

  • Can I achieve this asynchronously? (e.g. Slack, FigJam, Loom, etc.)

When creating an event:

  • Invite all attendees and mark those who can attend optionally
  • Add a Google Meet link
  • Add an agenda in the description

PTO + OOO:

  • Create an All Day event in your department calendar(s)
  • Naming convention is $Name PTO or $Name OOO
    • Specify initial of last name or full last name if necessary
    • E.g. Victor V PTO; Victor S OOO
  • You can specify AM or PM for when you are OOO as well if you are working a partial day
    • E.g. Naoki OOO AM;
  • Change event color to Graphite
  • Create an Out of Office event on your personal calendar as well
  • Change your Slack status when you are out of office

BirthRay:

  • Set event name to ‘($firstname $lastname)'s BirthRay! 🎉’
  • Set the event to ‘All Day’ and ‘Annually on $date’
  • Set the calendar to ‘Design Division’
  • Set the color to ‘Basil’

Birthday (beginning from the year you were hired):

  • Set event name to ‘($firstname $lastname)'s Birthday! 🥳’
  • Set the event to ‘All Day’ and ‘Annually on $date’
  • Set the calendar to ‘Design Division’
  • Set the color to ‘Flamingo’

Update

  • Only update events if you are the event creator or received permission from the event creator
  • In the instance a event needs to be moved, update the date and time of the event rather than deleting and recreating the event.
  • When updating a reoccurring event, make sure to select ‘This event only’ or ‘This event and following events’ when appropriate

Delete

  • Only delete events if you are the event creator or received permission from the event creator
  • When deleting a reoccurring event, make sure to select ‘This event only’ or ‘This event and following events’ when appropriate
  • When deleting an event, delete the single instance or the that instance with all future events — leave all previous events that occurred

Regional Holidays Calendar

The Regional Holidays calendar is managed by Liferay Human Resources. The Regional Holidays calendar is public to all Liferay.com emails.

What you’ll find

Official Liferay holidays for each region

How to gain editing access

  • Liferay Human Resources owns and updates the calendar
  • In the event there is a error/missing holiday, please create a LRHR ticket with the region the holiday belongs to, holiday name, and date. _The date should be the day employees are out of office. For instance, if New Year’s Day is on a Sunday (01/01), you would provide Monday (01/02) as the holiday date._
