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 users put on their calendar~
How to Add an Event
- After logging into your account, click on a blank space in your calendar, then select the “Everything Else” option.
- In the “Create Birthday” window (which can be for any event, not just birthdays), 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. Next, fill in the Activity title field.
- Select a color from the Color field if you would like a different color than the default for the Category you selected.
- Next, you will want to determine the time frame for your Activity using the drop-down menu for the “When” field. The default is that the event will occur annualy 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. Here are the steps for creating a customized schedule:
- Select one of the pre-set options from the When drop-down menu or choose the “More choices” option in the drop-down menu which will open the “Edit custom schedule” window.
- 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.
- Set a start and end date for your class if you do not want them to follow the pre-selected default of No end date.
- Choose whether this is an All day event or in a specified window of time.
- 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.
- That’s it! Select Save & Close!
