I can't find a way to add an event to the calendar so it will show up in multiple courses. I have to go into each course and add event manually... there has to be a way to do a multi-post.
Allison, unfortunately you are correct that to get the same event on multiple calendars you have to enter them manually.
There is a feature idea for this - Create a single course calendar entry across multiple classes - and I recommend voting and commenting on why it would be so useful to have.
