Otta has over 1,000 events available, covering the UK, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Check the box/boxes against the event groups you wish to automatically show on your project calendar. The selection can be changed at any time by unchecking or checking additional boxes.

As the public events are managed and maintained by Otta there is no access to add your own public events. If you feel there is an event missing or the information displayed is wrong click on the Make a suggestion link, provide the details and the team will review, correct or add where appropriate.
