Using PlanIt Purple

PlanIt Purple is Northwestern University’s web-based calendar. It serves as a central database for events throughout the Northwestern community. Posting your events to PlanIt Purple will help ensure that your events are publicized as widely as possible and will reduce the likelihood of event scheduling conflicts.

Assistance using PlanIt Purple

Calendar feeds

Weinberg's main website has a College events calendar that is automatically generated from the PlanIt Purple database. The Kaplan Humanities Institute website has a similar calendar for humanities events.

Individual departments can also put automated feeds of their events onto their website (for an example, see the "Calendar of Current Events" box on the Psychology Department's home page). Please submit a support request if you would like to generate an events feed for your department/program website using the PlanIt Purple database.
