To begin creating an event, click the “Create New” button. It’s the red button found on the left side of the page. You will be directed to a page requesting you to input the details of the event.
Provide the name of the event in the first field. Just tap the “untitled event” words in the field and type in the name. Below the title field, you will see the start date and time as well as the end date and time of the event. Pick the dates and times of the event in these fields. In the “Where” field below date and time, enter the location where the event will take place. Add a little something about the event in the Description field if desired. If you want Google Calendar to email you a reminder (like letting you know one day before the event), set notification information in the Notification option. Under this option are 3 boxes. These boxes have drop-down menus. In the first box, select the way you want to be notified (e.g., mail or a pop-up window that appears when your computer is on and is connected to the Internet). The second and third box also contains a drop-down menu for selecting minutes, hours, days or weeks to set a specific date and time for the notification. You can also choose to invite friends to the event by typing their email addresses on the “Add Guest” field. If you choose to invite friends, you have to specify their user rights. For example, they can invite other friends, view other invited friends, or modify the event. Click the “Save” button to complete the process of creating the event. The “Save” button can be found at the end of the Create Event form. Next to this button is “Discard.” If you want to cancel the event creation, click this instead.
