Next, fill in the Activity title field if you would like. Use the “For Whom:” drop-down menu to select the person(s) this Activity is for.
  3. Next, you will want to determine the time frame for your Activity using the drop-down menu for the “When” field. There are quite a few preset options as well as a “More choices” option for creating a customized schedule. Here are the steps for creating a customized schedule:

    • When you are satisfied with your schedule selections, click the “Save” button on the bottom of the window.
  4. Set a start and end date for your class if you do not want them to follow the pre-selected defaults.
