Please add this procedure to the Laser Calendar page to make it clear how to use the Google Calendar to add a reservation.

Step 1: You've taken the laser class, correct? If not then you can't use the lasers.

Step 2: Make sure you have access to the laser calendar. Go to calendar.google.com, make sure you are logged into a google account, and make sure that the calendar "ATX Hackerspace Laser Scheduling" shows up in the list on the left-hand side (same list as your name). If that calendar doesn't show up then let the board know (board@atxhs.org) that you need access to the laser calendar.

Step 3: Make sure the laser calendar is checked & visible in that left-hand column. You should see reservations made by other members.

Step 4: Click the plus (+) in the bottom-right corner of the screen to add an event. Add the title (e.g. "Robert S RED"), date & time, use the pulldown (to the left of the color selection) to switch the calendar from "Robert Shaver" to "ATX Hackerspace Laser Scheduling", and if you want to be really nice change the color to red or blue based on which laser you are going to use. NOTE: If you do not use the plus (+) icon, but click on the times slot itself, the event you create will be added only to your own calendar.

Step 5: Click "Save" and you're done. Verify your new event shows up on the calendar.
