In this video, Jess Stratton shows a few ways to create a new calendar event in the web browser.
- [Instructor] The first way to create my event…is to click the white plus sign in the red circle…on the bottom right-hand side of the screen.…It brings me into the new calendar event dialog.…The first thing I need to do is give my event, meeting,…or appointment a name.…After that, I need to say when it is.…I can click inside the start date field.…I can choose a date and use these arrows…to go back and forth through the months.…
I'll leave it as today's date.…Now I need to choose a time.…I can click inside the time and use my mouse…to scroll through the time slots.…I'll choose a time, and you'll notice that the end time…automatically populates based on the default event time…that we selected in Settings.…If I'm making this in a different time zone…I can choose to select that.…Moving down, there's an optional field where I can specify…where the event is.…
I can put in a simple text description for my own reference…or I can also put in an address.…This is useful later if I want to click on Google Maps…and bring up how to get there.…
