Govstack Events has four types of user accounts, each with different permissions. These permission levels help you manage and review all new events while making it easy for employees and members of the public to add events.

Account settings

Review each account type and learn about the permissions associated. Only “Administrators” and “Calendar Administrators” can approve event submissions.

Individuals with an “Administrator” account are responsible for maintaining Govstack Events and can perform all security, approval, user and data management functions. Administrators can also customize system messages and create new calendars. This account setting should be limited to IT personnel and calendar managers. Administrator accounts do not receive automated emails from the calendar system when events are added that require approval.

Individuals with “Calendar Administrator” accounts are responsible for a single calendar. They are able to review and approve events posted to that particular calendar by public and employee users. They can also determine who has access to post events to their calendar. This account setting is best for managers that oversee a particular schedule or calendar within your organization. These users will receive automated emails informing them when an event is awaiting approval.

Individuals with “Employee User” accounts can post events to both private and public calendars. All events posted by an “Employee User” need to receive approval from an “Administrator” or “Calendar Administrator" before becoming public.

To post to a non-public calendar, “Employee Users” must request permission to access the calendar. Employee User accounts are best for staff members involved in event planning and publicizing events.

Users are members of the public who have created their own account in order to post an event to a calendar. All events posted by public users need to receive approval from an “Administrator” or “Calendar Administrator” before being posted on the public calendar.
