In the event defaults and editor settings, you can configure the behavior when creating a new event.


  • Default Calendar (lets you configure which calendar is selected by default for a new event, you can always change the calendar at the top of the edit dialog)
  • Start time (the default time for a new event that is not created by long-pressing on a day, where you explicitly provide a start time), you can select any time, or all-day or current time or next full hour
  • HTML Formatting allows to use HTML formatting like bold, italics, underline in the description field of the event (some devices are not fully compatible with this mode)
  • Defaults for timed events and all-day events
    • duration (only for timed)
    • default notifications
    • visibility (public/private)
    • availability (free/busy)
  • Autocomplete for title and location
    • history (uses your past event data in the same calendar)
    • contacts (used for contact linking / address-lookup)
  • Business details (allows to remove unused features)
    • visibility (remove e.g. for non-shared or local calendars)
    • availability 
    • show conflicts
    • categories (currently only MS Exchange and davX5)
