Creating Calendar Events

There are two ways to create a new appointment:

  1. Click and Drag:

    Click in the starting date/time in your calendar and drag down to the end time, then release your mouse.  Now a new Calendar Entry form will appear.

  2. Add Button:

    You can click on the Add Button and this is how iPad users would add a new appointment.  When you click on the button a new Calendar Entry form appears and you can enter in the details of the appointment.  You will have to manually determine the date and time if you choose this option.

New Calendar Entry Form

  7. Attendees:  You can invite other members of your firm to an appointment.  They do not receive a message, but the appointment will appear in their respective calendars.
