How do I use the Samsung calendar app?
The calendar app is the first place you should go to keep ahead of all the important occasions in your life. Sync your existing calenders, colour code and add stickers to your appointments or invite others to your events, the calendar app gives you all the tools you need to get organised.
Getting around the app
If you're just getting started with the calendar app you may need a little help getting around. Find out how to change the calendar view, jump to the current date, get a closer look at your events and much more.
Swipe up and down on the day, month and year to select a date to jump to.
You can swipe left or right to switch the month that you are currently looking at.
Swipe up one or two times to see more information about the date that you have selected.
You can change the view of the calendar to easily see the whole year, month, week or just a single day. You can also quickly jump to the reminder app.
Tasks and reminders used to be integrated into the calendar app but have been moved to give you greater options. From the menu you can tap Reminder, to jump straight to the reminder app.
Creating an event
Your events and occasions are the reasons to keep a calendar, there are some things that are just too important to miss. Whether it's your favourite artist coming to town, a work meeting or a special anniversary, keep track of it by making an event.
Please note: you will only be able to invite people that are in your contact list
Your event will now appear on your calendar.
Plans change and fortunately your calendar can keep up with that. Forget the days of scribbled out events and cluttered calendars because editing and deleting events is easy.
If you are editing an event you will have all the same customistation options as when you first set the event up.
Events are better with your friends, that's why it's super easy to share your events and invite your loved ones. You can share your calendar events through email, WhatsApp, Bluetooth and more, so that no matter what platform your connections are on they will never be left out.
Please note: the available apps will depend on the apps you have installed on your specific device
You can also share the event by adding an invitee. If you have already created an event and would like to add an invitee, edit the event to include that contact in the invitee list.
Adding a calendar
The Samsung calendar app lets you bring together your events from other calendars including Gmail, Google, and Microsoft Exchange. This makes it easy to create shared calendars and import any you may already have. You can also turn on calendar syncing so that your calendars stay up to date across all your devices.
Having all of your calendars in one place is great, but it can start getting a little cluttered. If you'd like you can choose which calendars are displayed, helping you see the events you need to, when you need to.
Sometimes hiding a calendar from you display isn't enough. If you would like to remove a calendar completely you can do so through your settings.
Please note: removing an account will also remove it from any other apps. For example, if the calendar you want to remove is associated with an email account it will also be removed from the email app
