    Once you are done that, you are going to need to go down to the Apps icon
    .
    The bottom right-hand side of the phone. Give that one single tap.

  3. 3
    One tap on the Apps icon is going to open up the applications folder where all of your device applications will be shown
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    In this folder, you are going to tap on the calendar icon, which looks like the number 31 in a little box and says "SPlanner" underneath of it
    .
    Again it is the number 31 in a little white box with a green line across the top and it says "SPlanner".
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    Those of you familiar with old fashioned calendars will know that this is, what it looks like - a day on a date calendar
    .
    One tap will open it up. As you can see, we are on March 19, 2015.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    I am going to add an event that is done by pressing the 'Plus' button
    .
    One press on the 'Plus' button lets me add an event - my apologies, I am adding a task.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    Events are different than tasks because events allow you to indicate a location and add quite a bit more detail
    .
    This will be a task. A task is a reminder, for instance, mow the lawn, change the light bulb, buy diapers, take out the dishes, don't forget to bring flowers home to the angry person you love.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    In this case, we have it set as "My task"
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    You can tap on "My task" and you can set it up as a Samsung Task if you prefer
    .
    I am going to leave it as "My task" - specific to this phone. I am not syncing across other devices however you can sync events from your calendar. We do discuss that in another video that you can access by clicking the link below.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    Now we are going to have a title
    .
    The title is simply going to be "Test". It is a very easy title. Okay.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    The due date for the "Test" we are going to change that
    .
    We do not want it to be the 19th.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    Let us make that due date the 26th or the 27th or the 24th
    .
    It is entirely up to you. I am going to go with the 27th. Now that the due date is set.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    You can also tap here and you can individually change the information
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    Or you can switch back to the month view
    .
    I am quite happy with the month view.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    I am going to set the date
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    Now the date has been set for Friday, March 27th
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    Alternatively, you could set "No due date" if you did not have a due date
    .
    Examples of no due date tasks might be something like learn how to play checkers, learn how to play chess. These may be things that are important to you for any number of reasons. Perhaps you have fallen in love with someone who loves playing chess every weekend in the park. Perhaps you have decided that it is in your best interest to do something to expand you mind or learn to be better. Whatever it may be, that is up to you. This is how you set up a reminder for yourself to do it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Now, let us tap on 'View more options'
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    This allows us to set up other information for this
    .
    First of all, let us go down to 'Priority.'
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    How important is this event, 'Low, Medium, High'
    ?
    I am going to set this as a 'High Priority' event so that you can see what that icon looks like.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Description, let us call it, "Dance"
    .
    "Dance and be merry!", life is too short to not learn how to dance. So, you should take it upon yourself to dance and be merry. That is excellent advice. Bear in mind that that is "Dance and be merry" not "Dance and be married". M-e-r-r-y, a little exclamation point because this is such a great suggestion.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    Now let us tap on reminder
    .

    Now we are back here

Questions and Answers

I had an S4, easy way to show the tasks in S Planner?

How do I display tasks in the S Planner on my S5?

Once you have added a task to the S Planner it will appear in the screen of the app just like it did in the S4. If your tasks are not showing, try to update the S Planner. You can also download the Google Calender app and sync it with the S Planner. Many users prefer the Google app because it is more efficient and has less bugs that occur with the S Planner.

Why does not the reminder button come up on my phone in S- planner?

I can set events in S-planner but cannot find the reminder. I have read the instructions on the web but they do not fit with my phone. I cannot find a reminder button or a task button. I have tried: Searching everything on my phone and reading the web instructions. I think it was caused by: Don't know

Was this helpful? Yes | No| I need help

Your phone is in Easy Mode. You have to go into Settings and then My Device to change your "Home screen mode" to "Standard mode." Now you should see the Reminder button again and the calendar fields should be smaller and displaying tasks as well as the Reminder should appear again.

S planner isn't saving my events. Is there some way to reinstall it? It isn't working?

I go to the date I want. I fill out the name and place and times. I click Set. I click Save. It isn't saved.. I have tried: Restarting my phone.. I think it was caused by: I was using Defumblr and was having problems with the calendar on the lock screen so I disabled some somewhere. wasn't getting it the way I wanted so I uninstalled Defumblr. Don't use SPlanner much. Next time I tried to use it, it didn't work. Thinking about just downloading another calendar app.

You can only update this app because it was pre installed as part of the Samsung OS. Make sure that you did not change your phone settings to Easy Mode as stated above because this can make the tasks disappear. Also in the Calender section there is a setting for My Tasks and that has to be checked. After the Lollipop OS the calender changed and users have has some adjusting to do in order to get used to the new version.

How do I see a list of tasks in S Planner?

I did a system update on my Samsung S4. Now, I can no longer list my tasks in S Planner. (There used to be a tab on the right side)

Go into the S Planner setting and check My Tasks. The newest version of the S Planner got rid of the To Do List. Many people are switching over to the Google Calender app and the app called Tasks in Google Play. Tasks has a free and Premium paid version. Outlook Calender is also a great alternative.GTasks is free and the app that I use. TickTock is another free app but has in app purchases. With the disappointment of the latest S Planner many are using a third party app.
