How to add a single event

When you create a new event for a calendar, you define the event by naming it, specifying the start time, and more. You also have the option of adding the event to other calendars you've created. If things change after you create the event, you can update it or delete, remove, or cancel it at any time.

How to add events from one calendar to another

You can add an event you created on one calendar to any other calendar that you can edit. The event still belongs to the calendar where you created it and it gets added to the second calendar.

Adding events from one calendar to another can sometimes help you work more efficiently. For example, suppose:

  • You have two calendars and you want to export your events to create backup files. By adding events from Calendar B to Calendar A, you can export all of your events at once.
  • You want to share Calendar A with another Trumba account holder and you also want to share some but not all of the events from Calendar B. By adding some events from Calendar B to Calendar A, you can share just the combination of events you want.

You have three options for adding events from one calendar to another:

How do I remove events I add from other calendars?

Add a single event using the Event Information form

Clicking the title of an existing event (or clicking Add Event to create a new event) opens the Event Information form. In the Also Shows On section on the right, select the check box next to the name of the calendar to which you want to add the event.

Add a single event by clicking the event arrow

If you have events from Calendar B mixed in to Calendar A, you can add events from Calendar B to Calendar A by clicking the arrow to the left of an event description. Clicking the arrow displays a menu that includes a command for adding the event to the currently-displayed calendar.

What does it mean to have a calendar mixed in?

Add multiple events in List view

When you want to add more than one event from one calendar to another, it's quickest to use List view.

  1. In the Other Calendars list, click the arrow next to the name of the calendar to which you want to add events, and then click Go to calendar.
  2. In the calendar list, select check boxes next to the titles of the calendars that include events you want to add.
  3. Click List above the calendar to see the events in list view.
  4. In the event list, select the check boxes next to the events that you want to add.
  5. In the drop-down list, select Add events to [calendar name]. In the second drop-down list that appears, select the name of the calendar you want the events added to, and then click Go.

Remove an event you added from another calendar

To remove events you added from other calendars, click the event arrow, and choose the remove command.

Tips

  • You can also remove an event by opening the Event Information form. In the Also Shows On section to the right of the form, clear the check box next to the name of the calendar, and then click OK.
  • To remove several events, display the calendar from which you want to remove the events. Click List above the calendar to see the events in List view. In the event list, select the check boxes next to the events you want to remove. In the drop-down list, select Remove events from [calendar name], and then click Go.
