Calendar Add Event is located under My Calendar > Add Event.
The above is the default Add Event screen to where you will be adding events to My Calendar.
Select the General category or create new category/categories for your event by clicking the + Add Categories. Insert the name and click Add Category.
Defining a Primary Category.
In the above example, I have added three categories Travel, Spain and Summer. I have to update the event to have these newly created categories show up in the Primary Category drop down.
I can now select Travel category as the Primary Category for this event.
What does selecting Primary Category do?
Date and Time
Start Time and End Time of the event.
Date and End Date (optional) if needed.
Instead of adding a Start and End Time you can click the All day event. Here you can rename the Time label and Hide end time if you choose to do so.
Date and Time – Add occurrence
By clicking + Add occurrence the occurrence screen is seen. Here one can add additional dates of the same event. Having one event occur many times.
With Repetition Pattern one can create a pattern of how often events are repeated. Starting from the first event and ending at the date “Repeat Until” field.
