Steps

  1. 1
    To start off, let's give this Lock Screen button a push to open it up, and we can just slide across the screen
    .
    You may have a lock pattern, fingerprint scan or complex password. In any case, you want to enter that yourself.

  2. 2
    Once you're in the screen you'll see the Google Calendar icon here, which should be from your install
    .
    If it's not there, that's no problem. You're just going to go down here to the Apps icon. It looks like a little checkerboard. Give it a tap and it'll open that up.

  3. 3
    You might have to scroll around a little but; however, scrolling through you'll find the blue 31 icon again
    .
    It's a little square calendar page that says "Calendar" right under it. That's your Google Calendar icon. Give that a single tap.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    It's going to open up your Google Calendar
    .
    Now that we're on Google Calendar, it's very easy to add an event. Looking on this page, where would we look for the most obvious place to open a new event? This big red plus here. Let's give it a single tap. Now what this does is it lets us create a new event. See here where it says, "New event" at the top?
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    For the event title, we'll put Jury Duty
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    Where's our jury duty going to be
    ?
    Let's make it in D.C. Everybody loves jury duty in D.C. There we go.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    With who
    ?
    OK, so we're going to have jury duty and it's going to be with my good friend Mr. Hamed. Now as you see here, adding contacts does not send out an invitation. When you're adding people the actual invitation is not sent out, and personally I find that to be a good thing.

  8. 8
    OK, done
    !
    Just tap on the 'Done' button down here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    Here we have 'Events'; just tap the calendar you want
    .
    I can tap 'My Calendar'. That's going to put the event on 'My Calendar'.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Here we can choose whether it's an all-day event
    .
    If it's not an all-day event, then you can choose when it is, how long it is and what's happening.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    More options here; does it repeat or does it not repeat
    ?
    In my case, it does not repeat.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    If we would like to add a notification, we can tap on 'Add a notification'
    .
    We've got a notification on the day, the day before in the evening or in the morning, or we can tap 'Custom'. Tapping 'Custom' let's us choose how far in advance we want it, whether we're going to have a notification or whether we're going to have an email. Let's make that as an email, then we tap 'Done'.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Now, we can add another notification if we would like to
    .
    Let's go ahead and check one here for 17:00. That way we get notified twice on the day.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We can invite more people
    .
    Let's go ahead and invite myself - nice and easy. Done. Now I'm also invited.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    The event color can be changed
    .
    Let's make it 'Peacock'.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    I can add a note
    .
    I'll let myself know to upload. You can add any kind of information you want to put in here. I'm just simply tapping stuff.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Tap on 'Save' once you've got your notes put in
    .
    There's your event created.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now let's go back to our event
    .
    Here's the event. It comes up.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    If I want to edit that event, I just tap this blue edit button
    .
    That lets me go back into the event and edit or change things.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Now I can add an attachment, which I didn't choose to do earlier
    .
    This will let me choose something from Google Drive. I can cancel this if I don't want to add an attachment.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    I can edit the 'Calendar default'
    .
    This lets me choose whether it's public or private. So I'm just going to use the calendar default.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    And I can set my time as available or busy
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    Now I can save the event again
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    And when you're finished with it, just tap the little 'x' button, and there's your event
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    If you decide to delete it, just tap on the edit button here, and down at the bottom tap on 'Delete'
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    Google's going to ask you if you want to delete it
    .
    You're going to say 'Yes'. And the event's gone; deleted! No more event on that day.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    Let's go ahead and press the 'Home' button at the bottom of our phone
    .
    That's going to take us home.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
