Creating timed events

Timed events, such as meetings or appointments, take place during a specified period of time. You can create timed events in week view or month view, but they're easier to create in week view.

To create a timed event in Calendar:
  1. In week view, drag from the start time to the end time of the event.
  2. Enter the name of the event in the Summary field and the location of the event in the Location field.
  3. If you want to change the start date of the event, click the date, and in the calendar that appears, click a date. To change the start date to today's date, click Today (diamond); to view the previous month, click Previous (up arrow); to view the next month, click Next (down arrow).
  4. If you want to change the start time, use the Start Time pop-up menus.
  5. Deselect "All-Day (Banner) event."
  6. If you want to change the duration of the event, use the Duration pop-up menus. If the duration is more than 24 hours, then enter a number in the "days" field.
  7. Click OK.
After you've created an all-day event, you can edit it.
