# How do I create a custom event? > [!Alert] Please be aware that not all functionality covered in this article may be available to you. Custom events are used to schedule a seminar, a meeting or a class without any of the content available through a course. If you are interested in using this feature, please submit a Support ticket at [**https://lod.one/help**](https://lod.one/help) to be given permissions to create and manage Custom Events. >[!NOTE] Courses provide content such as labs, video, external sites, assessments and documents.
