What Kinds of Events Can I Add?

You can add just about any event to your Homeschool Planet calendar! Here are a few examples of commonly added events found on a Homeschool Planet Calendar~

  • Birthdays
  • Anniversaries
  • Vacations

How to Add an Event

  1. After logging into your account, click on a blank space in your calendar, then select the “Birthdays…” option.
  2. In the “Create Birthday” window (which can be for any event, not just birthdays), give a name to your Event.
  3. Next use the drop-down menu in the “Category” field to select the category you need or select “Add a Category” if you want a new category.
  4. Select a color from the Color field if you would like a different color than the default for the Category you selected.
  5. Next, you will want to determine the time frame for your Event using the drop-down menu for the “When” field. The default is that the event will occur annually on the date it is applied to the calendar but there are quite a few preset options as well as a “More choices” option for creating a customized schedule.
  6. Set a start and end date for your event if you do not want them to follow the pre-selected default of No end date.
  7. Choose whether this is an All day event or in a specified window of time.
  8. Next go to the Notes 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.
  9. That’s it! Select Save & Close!
