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:

    • In the “When” drop-down menu, select “Custom schedule…” at the bottom of the list.
    • When this option is select, you will be able to choose a repeat pattern, specific days, and times. To the left of these fields, you will also be able to set the “Starting” and “Until” dates.
    • 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.
  5. Next go to the Tasks tab and enter any additional needed information. You may use the “To every day/week, add this:” field to enter the same info, such as a location or other pertinent information, to each day this activity occurs.
    • You can upload documents, add convenient reminders, or link to websites if needed.
  6. That’s it! Select Save & Close!
