In order to Create, Edit, Delete, or Read an AdHoc Event, the user must be in a user group that has permissions to do so. There are four permissions options:
- AdHoc Events
- Assign AdHoc Event.
Note: You can select All on the dropdown list, and search for AdHoc or other keywords to locate a specific permission setting. Below we have searched for AdHoc:
Each permission type has options to Create, Edit, Delete, and Read. These are explained more in depth below.
Users in the group can
|Create new AdHoc events
|Can edit already created AdHoc events
|Can delete any AdHoc event
|Can read an AdHoc event

Note: The Note input on this dialogue page is displayed in the legs tooltip in the ScheduleGantt. Additionally, the comment can also be sent out with any standard text messages as part of the AdHoc Event template. The priority determines in which order AdHoc Events are displayed on the legs tool tip.

Note: The Adhoc event generator can send the free text, entered in the 'Comments' field, together with any pre-stored messaging from a template. For this to work, you need to add the Data Element 'N-OC' + "AllNotes (String)" to the Adhoc event template(s).
These are found in the Integration Factory. See the image below:
