The Month View is a "month block" similar to other tools like Google Calendar, Outlook's calendar, etc. Clicking a day box will change the display to a Day View. See "Creating Reservations: Day View" for instructions on Day View event creation.
Creating events from the Month view is for "long" time span events. Events that may last for more than one day.
To create a multi-day event: "Left Click and Hold" on the desired starting day and drag the mouse to the desired ending day. This should bring up an Event Creation popup.
It is important to note that day/time ranges selected in this way will include ALL times in the selected days. This may cause some confusion if the first selected day block is for "Today". In most cases the start time of the selected event will be Before Now (the current wall clock time). Please adjust the starting time in the event creation popup to reflect the current, or some future, time.
The Week View is a horizontal, 7-day group of "Day Views". Creating an event can be as simple as a single Left-Click on a time grid box. This will bring up an Event Creation popup. The event start/stop day and time values may be changed as necessary, as long as the start time is not in the past.
Creating longer time ranges and multi-day events is possible as in the Month View with the addition of being able to have more precise begin/end time selections. "Left Click and Hold" on the desired starting day/time and drag the mouse to the desired ending day/time. This should bring up an Event Creation popup.
The Day View is a vertical grid of time selection blocks. Creating an event can be as simple as a single Left-Click on a time grid box. This will bring up an Event Creation popup. The event start/stop day and time values may be changed as necessary, as long as the start time is not in the past.
Creating longer time ranges is possible as in the Week View with the exception of not being able to drag a selection into additional days. "Left Click and Hold" on the desired starting time and drag the mouse to the desired ending time. This should bring up an Event Creation popup.
Even though a new event in a Day View can not be "dragged" into additional days the ending day/time in Event Creation popup can be modified to include future days,

Other controls will exist as buttons at the bottom of the popup panel.
