How to Create an Event and Manage an indico Category
Event creation is restricted to Category Managers and Authorized users.

indico users with no privileges to create events in a category:
If you are an Indico user and need to create an event under a category that you do not have event creation privileges, please contact one of the category managers listed on the page for further assistance. If there are no managers in the category then contact one of the parent category managers.

indico category managers:
If you are a category manager, you can either add the person as an authorized user who can create events under the category or you can create an event and assign that person as the event manager.

Create an event for a user:
As a category manager, you can create events under the category and all its subcategories and assign other Indico users as managers of that event.

To assign a person as an event manager:
  • Edit the event,
  • Go to the “Protection” page and press the “Add manager” button.
  • In the next popup window, enter the user’s name and press the “Search” button. 
  • Select (just click on the desired name in the shown list of Indico users) and press the “Add” button.
  • To remove a person from the event manager’s list simply press the red “x” next to the name.

Add user as authorized user to create events:
As a category manager you can manage the category (and its subcategories) and add other indico users who are allowed to create events.

To manage the category:
  • Go to the categoryyou want to manage
  • Click the "Manage" drop down menu and select "Edit Category"
  • Go to the "Protection" page and scroll down to the "Conference creation control" section and press the "Add user" next to "Users allowed to create conferences"

“Create Events” restrictions beginning December 9, 2016

After Friday, Dec. 9, 2016  5:00 p.m. Central Time, only category managers will be able to create events and unauthorized users will be prevented. This is part of the continuous improvement effort to optimize cybersecurity at Fermilab.

If the category you regularly create events in does not have any managers, we encourage you to contact us at: indico-support@fnal.gov or the Fermilab Service Desk (https://fermi.service-now.com/) so we can add the appropriate managers before December 9, 2016.
