Adding Events Using the Event List

An event list is a file containing the events in your calendar(s). A new event list is created with each new calendar collection. It allows you to group various types of business and social events.

To access the event list:

  • Click to open the event list (or select Show Event List from the View menu).

To remove an event from the calendar without removing it from the event list:

  • De-select the Display Event check box to the left of the event description. To add the event back to your calendar, select the check box.

To add events directly into the event list:

  • Click to select a blank line in the event list. Then click again in one of the event information fields (such as Description) and enter your text.

Event Information fields are used to enter event related information. Each event information field is described below:

  • Description allows you to enter brief information about the event.
  • Category allows you indicate the type of the event (meeting, birthday, etc.).
  • Priority allows you to indicate the importance of the event in relation to others.
  • Start Date allows you to indicate the date the event begins.
  • Start Time allows you to indicate the time the event begins.
  • End Time allows you to indicate the time the event ends.
  • Attributes allows you to select a note or an alarm to be associated with the event.
  • Participants lists any address book contacts linked to the event.

Events can also be entered via the Add Event dialog box. See Adding Events With Details for instructions.

Note: As you work with your file remember to save frequently using img or the Save Collection option on the File menu. (See Saving Your Calendar File for more details.)
