Create an event

There are a couple ways to create an event:

Click an empty time in your calendar

If you're already looking at your schedule, you can quickly create an event by clicking on your calendar.

  1. Open Google Calendar on a computer.
  2. Click an empty day or time on your calendar. Tip: If you're on a view with an hour grid like Day view or Week view, you can click and drag to create a longer event.
  3. Enter the name of your event and a start time (optional). For example, type "8:30pm Concert" to add an event called "Concert" that starts at 8:30pm.
  4. If you have multiple calendars, you can choose which calendar to add your event to by clicking the Calendar drop-down menu.
  5. Click Create event if you're done, or click Edit event to edit the time, add more details, edit notifications, or invite people to your event.
