Calendar: Add events to a calendar

Add events to a calendar

Add meetings, doctor appointments, family activities, and more to your calendars.

  1. Click Add (+) at the top of Calendar.

    Events are added to your default calendar.

    • To add the event to a different calendar, click and hold Add (+), and then choose a calendar.

    • To change your default calendar, choose Calendar > Preferences, click General, and then choose a calendar from the Default Calendar pop-up menu.

      If you set your default calendar to be the selected calendar, then whichever calendar is highlighted in the Calendar list is the default calendar.

  2. Enter a name, date, and time duration for the event, and then press Return.

    For example, you can enter “Super Bowl Party Feb 6,” “Movie with Rebecca on Friday at 7pm,” “Soccer Game on Saturday from 11am-1pm,” or “Breakfast with Jon.”

    • If you don’t enter a time duration, Calendar sets the duration to 1 hour.

    • If you don’t enter any time information, Calendar makes the event an all-day event.

    • If you enter “breakfast” or “morning,” Calendar sets the event to start at 9 a.m.

    • If you enter “lunch “ or “noon,” Calendar sets the event to start at 12 p.m.

    • If you enter “dinner” or “night,” Calendar sets the event to start at 8 p.m.

  3. To set any other event options, make your changes in the event’s editor.

    Set an event to recur

    Set an alert for an event

    Invite others to an event

Here are some additional ways to add events:

  • Add an event in Day or Week view by dragging from the event’s start time to its end time.

  • Add a new 1-hour event in Day or Week view by double-clicking within the day.

  • Add a new event in Month view by double-clicking within the day. Enter a name and time duration in the event’s title field, and then press Return.

    Calendar moves the event to the correct time and sets it to the correct duration.
