Scheduling your events for the year can be a great way to save on admin time further down the track. Time, which no doubt, will be increasingly difficult to come by as the year progresses.
If you have any events set in stone, you can create them and schedule them to post on the day/month/year that you deem to be most applicable.
The ever so wonderful Bradley, has already gone ahead and created a Help Desk article with the instructions you will need here.
Note: The article is for scheduling a notice, but it works the same for events.
