Just like you do not store all your files in one huge folder, it is strongly recommended to organize your events into multiple calendars, e.g. private, work, family, sports, etc.
Using multiple calendars has many advantages and no real disadvantage:
- color coding: you can assign a color to each calendar and also later change the color with just one click (as opposed to manually color-coding each event). The calendar color can be assigned in the Calendar List (manage calendars).
- filtering: you can view single calendars or subsets of all your calendars in each view or widget (using profiles)
- You can turn off visibility in month view for selected calendars (via the Calendar List (manage calendars))
- sharing: you can share a calendar with friends, family or coworkers
How to create new calendars
Just go to Calendar List (manage calendars) and press the plus button.
How to change the selected calendar of an event
When creating / editing a new event, simply select the calendar at the top of the screen (please see screenshot 1+2).
The calendar to which an event belongs, is always given in the event details (screenshot 3).
The default calendar for new events can be set in the Calendar List (manage calendars) by long pressing the calendar.
