What is the S Planner (calendar) and how do I use it?

Please Note: that the Calendar app is an updated version of the S Planner app which will come pre-installed on your device.


The icons and screen may differ slightly from the illustrations below depending on your device, operating system and theme.


The Samsung Calendar (S Planner on older devices) is a calendar application that enables you to synchronize your calendars to your Galaxy device so that everything is immediately and easily accessible. You can create and modify appointments right from your device, and any updates made are automatically synchronised. The Calendar allows you to sync calendar events with several email addresses, invite attendees, set reminders, add locations and more.
