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
    • all-day
    • current time
    • next full hour
  • HTML Formatting¬†
    ... allows to use HTML formatting like bold, italics, underline in the description field of the event (some Android devices are not fully compatible with this mode).
  • Defaults for timed events and all-day events
    • duration (only for timed events)
    • default notifications
    • visibility (private/public/server-default)
    • availability (busy/free/tentative)
  • 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)
  • Advanced settings
    • offer hidden calendars for new event
    • close event details when editing
      ... this closes the event details, the popup with the appointment list in the day / week / month view, when editing, otherwise the event details view remains open.
    • Back-key behavior (save/cancel)
