Convergence enables you to quickly create an event by using the single-click functionality and also by dragging the mouse pointer from one point of time to another.
To quickly create an event, perform the following steps:
Select Calendar from the service selector panel in Convergence.
The Calendar tab appears in the right pane.
Click on any calendar view icons from the Calendar toolbar.
The following views are available in the form of icons:
Click on the time during which you want to create the event.
Based on the position where you click, the nearest approximate time is chosen. The time slots are available in 15 minutes duration. A callout appears displaying a text area where you can enter the event details. By default the event duration is 1 hour. To increase or decrease the duration of the event, you can drag the event by using the mouse pointer.
Drag the mouse pointer from one point of time to another during which you want to create the event. When you release the mouse button a callout appears displaying a text area where you can enter the event details. The total time you have selected by dragging the mouse pointer is taken as the duration of the event. You can increase or decrease the duration of the event by dragging the event up or down using the mouse pointer after the event is created.
Type the event details in the text area labeled What:.
The quick-add event functionality enables you to create an event based on the provided description. For example, if you provide the description 1 pm lunch at the Counter in the text area, the event attributes that are assigned to the time, location, and title are 1pm, the Counter, and lunch respectively.
Click Create Event.
Note - The quick-add functionality creates a simple event with the time, date, event name, and the description attributes. To create an event with more attributes such as reminders, recurrence, and attachments, see How Do I Create an Event?
