Tips & Tricks: Managing Your Phones Calendar

Updated February 23, 2015

Consult your phone’s calendar by day, week or month; create events and tasks; and set an alarm to act as a reminder. Here are a few tips to help you set up and navigate your Calendar.

Set up a Google Account

Google Calendar is built into the phone and synchronizes both new and existing entries between your phone and your online Google account. To get the most out of your Calendar, we recommend creating a Google Account (or signing in to an existing account). Set up a Google Account on your device in the Accounts section of the Settings app.

Create a Calendar Event or Task

Keep your busy schedule on track by adding important events and tasks into your calendar.

  1. From a Home screen, tap Apps > Calendar.
  2. Tap Create new and select one of the following options:
    • Add event: Enter an event with an optional repeat setting.
    • Add task: Enter a task with an optional priority setting.
  3. Enter details for the event or task, and then tap Save.

Delete Calendar Events or Tasks

When an event is canceled or a task no longer needs to be completed, removing it from your Calendar is easy: From a Home screen, tap Apps > Calendar. Tap an event or task to view it. Tap Delete.

To delete multiple events or tasks, tap More options > Delete, select events or tasks, and then tap Delete.
