[Android™ 4.4, KitKat] How do I Create and Delete a Calendar Event on my Samsung Galaxy S® 4?

You can manage your calendar using your mobile device by following the instructions below.

  • Create a Calendar Event

    To create a calendar event on your mobile device, open the Calendar  and touch the date you wish to add the event to. Touch Add new  at the top of the screen.

    Note: Additional options may be available when you are creating a calendar event for your ActiveSync calendar.

    Select the Calendar you want to have the event added to.

    You can add Reminders to the event and set the event to Repeat. You can also add a Location to the event and note any additional information about the event in the Description field. Add any Participants you want to invite to the event (not available if My Calendar is selected).

    If you share this calendar with others, you can select the Show me as option to display this time as Busy or Available. Set the Privacy option to set the event to Private or Public. Touch  next to Memos or Images to add them to the calendar event.

    When you are satisfied with the information, touch Save.

    To quickly add an event to a date with no scheduled events, touch the date for your event twice and enter the title. Touch Save. For example, if you enter "conference call 9 am," the device will add an event for a conference call from 9:00AM – 10:00AM.

  • Delete a Calendar Event

    To delete a calendar event on your mobile device, first open the Calendar and touch the date you wish to delete an event from. Touch and hold the event you want to delete and touch Delete event. Confirm the deletion by touching OK. When you are deleting a repeating event, you need to select additional options. Select Only this event to delete just the selected event. Select This & future events to delete the selected event and all future events. Select All repetitive events to delete all instances of the event from your calendar.

    Note: Some events cannot be deleted from the calendar. If an event originated from another application, for example: for birthdays and events added to your calander from your contacts, you will need to delete the event from the originating application.
