  1. Create a new sysfolder and switch to the list module. (Of course you can also use an existing sysfolder).
  2. Switch to List module
  3. Use the icon in the topbar “Create new record” and search for “Events 2” and its record “Event”.
  4. Click on “Event” to create a new event record. Choose an event type and fill as many fields you want. The required fields are highlighted in red.
