Description not showing on internal Calendar

Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same.  
We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.

The Details text box in the Event content type categories enable brief descriptions to display in the internal App calendars and on the front end/public facing calendars.

The Description text box in the Event content type categories only enable long descriptions to display on the front end/public facing calendars.

Note: Information entered in the Description text box does not display in the internal App calendars.
It is recommended that the Details and Description text box are not both populated with information.  This will cause the event text to appear twice on the pubic facing calendar.
  1. To enable the Details to display for events on the calendar, select the Show Brief Description button in the event category settings under onMessage > Content > EventsShow Brief Description category screenshot
  2. Then enter text in the Details text box and click Save.Details text box screenshot
