Before adding events you must have at least one calendar created otherwise the Events menu in the Dashboard will not appear!
To create an event go to your “Dashboard” go to “Stachethemes Event Calendar” and click “Events” from the menu.
Select “Calendar” from the list or create one if you haven’t created one yet. Click on “Add Event” button. Fill desired event details and click “Add Event”.
Keep in mind that most event tabs are optional. You can fill all the tabs before clicking on the “Add Event” button.
