To create a new event, open your calendar app and tap on the day of the event. Press add_circle to add an event to that day, and you’ll see the different options you have for the event creation.
Event name: Type a name for your event. For example, if your family is planning a birthday party for your mom, you can name your event Mom’s Birthday!
All day: Tap to choose if your event lasts the whole day, like Mom’s birthday. If your event is at a specific time, like soccer practice, tap the times to set them.
Location: If you need to remember where the event will take place, you can enter the location of the event. If it’s easy to remember, you can leave this field blank.
Reminder: Tell your phone to send you a notification a certain amount of time before the event starts. You can add more than one reminder by tapping Add reminder.
Repeat: Repeat the event in your Calendar app if needed. For example, if you have soccer practice every Thursday at 4 pm, you can repeat this event until the season is over!
Time zone: This is already set to your phone’s time zone, but if you’re traveling far for your event, you might need to change this. You can ask your parent what time zone an event will be in if you’re not sure.
Description: Add any other details you need to remember about your event.
Tap Save to save the event on your calendar!
