Adding Birthdays

Adding a birthday follows the same steps as creating an event. Follow the steps in our guide for creating an event here. You may want to adjust the event color options to tailor the event for birthdays and to ensure you can delineate between other events and birthdays. Here are some hints and options for adding birthdays to your calendar:

  • Open the drop down menu in the “Category” field and create a new category called “Birthdays” by selecting the “Add a Category” option at the bottom of the drop down menu to separate birthday events from your other event categories.
  • Ensure that you have selected the “Every Year on…” option under “Other” from the “When” dropdown menu if you DO want this event on your calendar each year and select the “No end date”  button under the “Until” field. 
  • If you would like to make the birthday a one day event and you don’t want it added to your calendar every year scroll to the top of the “When” field and set it for just that day. 
  • Leave the “All Day” button to the right of the “At this time” field if you are taking the whole day off for that birthday. Alternatively, deselect the “All Day” button if you are celebrating the birthday at a specific time.
